Bethesda announced its team has been “hard at work” on these new updates and will be running a Steam Beta for their latest version of Starfield next week. While little is known about the content of the patch as yet, one heavily requested feature has been confirmed.

“This update will feature Nvidia DLSS support with frame generation, display, and HDR controls for supported systems, and other optimizations and improvements,” Bethesda explained. They also clarified that AMD FSR3 support would be added “in a future update”.

PC players in the thread expressed excitement for the addition of DLSS support but most fans of Starfield were more drawn to the “other optimizations and improvements” that Bethesda teased.

“Hopefully, they have story-blocking bugfixes incoming. My save is so bugged,” one player said. Others expressed hope that a persistent bug where asteroids follow your ship would be addressed in the update.
