Bethesda Reveals Patch To Make ‘Starfield’ Look Higher

Bethesda Reveals Patch To Make ‘Starfield’ Look Better

Since its launch in September 2023, Bethesda has not precisely made a complete lot of serious updates to Starfield, however they promised that may begin to change in 2024 with bigger and extra frequent patches.

Now, they’re placing certainly one of their new patches right into a Steam beta with “100 fixes and enhancements.” Then, it is going to launch in full by the top of the month.

There’s a variety of boring stuff like fixing bugs in numerous quests which once more, some folks have been encountering since early September at this level. However the factor to spotlight is that Bethesda says that this replace brings “brings stability enhancements and quite a few graphic enhancements starting from extra widescreen help to improved textures, lighting, and shadows.” The instance they present for this half is 2 totally different characters within the creator mode:

Then, there are extra updates for “solar disk geometry, planet ring shadows.” And so they have examples for that as nicely:

I’m…somewhat perplexed about each of those, particularly with the examples being present. The variations between the faces, a minimum of from these instance photographs, appear actually fairly minimal, and the feel enhancements have definitely not translated into the chunky hair and beards. Moreover, many of the recreation’s faces already regarded fairly okay within the character creator itself, whereas issues obtained much more questionable out within the open world with many, many extra totally different sorts of lighting, so I’d need to see that in motion.

So, this patch shall be 4 months after launch, nevertheless it feels prefer it’s going to be principally bug fixes after which these considerably minor graphical enhancements. The sport has had near no quality-of-life upgrades since launch, essentially the most main being the power to eat meals proper off a counter as an alternative of placing it in your stock.

Hopefully Bethesda’s promise of 2024 patches carry extra enhancements. We’ve been promised new technique of traversal, which individuals assume could possibly be something from land automobiles to the erasure of so many loading screens, however we’ll need to see. For now, in two weeks you may see how this patch makes issues look. Or you may take a look at it within the public Steam Beta on January 17.
