Starfield - Bethesda Softworks

Starfield gets massive Xbox update with over 500 fixes and improvements (Starfield Update 1.10.31)

Way to many to list here, will have to check the article.

 
Finished the game today. Found it average Bethesda fare. Not great but not terrible either.
I am still to play this. After Cyberpunk and Assassin's Creed Valhalla, have no urge for an RPG right now.
 
Starfield was the biggest hype train derail for me since Halo Infinite. I must stop getting excited about Xbox first party titles outside of Playground games lol
 
Ooooohhh, now am feel like giving Starfield a go.

Lastly, the May Update also features new performance options for players who are traversing the galaxy via an Xbox Series X. Series X players will now be able to choose between 30fps 40fps, 60fps, or an uncapped frame rate on Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) displays. Those without a VRR display will be able to select either 30fps or 60fps. Series X players will also be able to prioritize gameplay performance over visual performance, and vice versa.


 
So I finally installed Starfield with the graphic updates from the other week, looks phenomenal on the LG Oled.

I quickly tried the following modes yesterday evening, and frankly they all looked and ran fantastic.
  • 40FPS + VRR + Visuals
  • 40FPS + VRR + Performance
  • 60FPS + VRR + Visuals
  • 60FPS + VRR + Performance
I think I am going to stick with 60FPS + VRR + Visuals for now as the VRR should sort out some frame rates drops. If it becomes to taxing on the XSX, then I will likely change to 40FPS + VRR + Visuals

Tis a BETH game. so take your time and ..meander. It's not a race. I also want to jump back in.....alas
 
Howard provided an update on the game's player base. Last we heard, in December 2023, the game had registered 13 million players. Now, it's increased by another million.

Starfield has 14 million players, and the average playtime is still over 40 hours a player. It's just like a staggering amount of time in-game.

 
120 fps on Series S !! Crazy. If Series S was in Delta Squad it would be Baird.

I've never understood why console games don't offer more flexibility in the graphics settings. Let the gamer decide on the quality / performance suits them.
