Starfield came out on PC and Xbox Series X|S on September 6. The game was missing the Nvidia DLSS graphic support option on launch. For this reason, PureDark’s Starfield DLSS mode was quite popular as it added the much-needed graphic option to the game. Furthermore, Bethesda announced that they’ll be adding a DLSS upscaling option to Starfield soon on PC. However, the feature’s arrival date hasn’t yet been revealed.

Starfield DLSS3 is available for $5 per month to subscribers of PureDark’s Patreon. Users can also download the DLSS2 mod for free from Nexus Mods. The DLSS2 version is a slightly less advanced version of the paid mod. PureDark has faced a fair share of backlash over social media and on their own Patreon because of their paid mods and the DRM protection.

Bethesda is also working towards releasing frequent updates to fix the stability and performance issues with Starfield. The game provides a lot of freedom for modders and users alike as we’ve seen players add Thomas The Tank Engine, alongside Buzz Lightyear and many others, to join us on our journey through space. Recently, Starfield mods crossed 14 million downloads on Nexus Mods, and the number is bound to get even bigger with time.
