Starfield Update: Improvements and Fixes for Bethesda’s Space Opera
Just 20 days after its official launch, Starfield, the highly anticipated space opera developed by Bethesda, is already receiving updates to enhance the gaming experience. Since September 6, the gaming community has been buzzing with comments, screenshots, videos, and valuable insights shared by players. However, alongside the excitement, there have been some complaints about the game’s performance.
Bethesda acknowledges the vastness of Starfield and the potential for errors. The valuable feedback from the community helps the developers identify and address these issues. As a result, Bethesda has released the latest Starfield update, which builds upon the previous small patch and brings significant improvements in stability and bug fixes for certain missions.
