A new patch should be rolling out to Starfield players now.

Story Highlights

  • Bethesda’s newest space RPG Bethesda is now out, offering a tantalizing gameplay experience in a vast universe waiting to be explored. The title came out earlier this month and launched to rave reviews across the board.
  • Up until now, the game has crossed more than 10 million players, and this comes in the short span of two weeks. It’s needless to say but Starfield is on course to become a top-notch commercial success for Bethesda. 
  • The developers continue to support the RPG with regular patches. The latest one on board is update 1.7.33, and it brings performance and stability improvements, all the while squashing some bugs in the process. 

Just about two weeks ago, Bethesda pushed out update 1.7.29 for Starfield, bringing particular fixes for certain quests and a number of general improvements. Now, the devs have outed yet another patch for the world-renowned RPG, addressing character-centric issues, resolving bugged graphics, and making adjustments to enhance the game’s overall stability.

The general changes included as part of the Starfield 1.7.33 update revolve around characters, Star Stations, and vendors. The new patch will now ensure that some characters are right where they’re supposed to be, alongside the in-game vendors allowing full access to their respective inventories. In addition, the patch notes for the graphics section read as follows: 

  • AMD (PC): Resolved an issue that caused star lens flares not to appear correctly AMD GPUs.
  • Graphics: Addressed an upscaling issue that could cause textures to become blurry.
  • Graphics: Resolved an issue that could cause photosensitivity issues when scrolling through the inventory menu.

Moving forward, some players reported the Hand Scanner to behave irregularly, leading to an ineffective use of the tool. The Starfield 1.7.33 update takes care of that part as well, thereby resolving the pertinent issue with the utility. Furthermore, there’s the added expanse of “various stability and performance improvements to address crashing and freezes.”

Lastly, the Starfield update 1.7.33 makes adjustments to the ship as well, which is quite easily one of the most important aspects of the game. Bethesda says that it has fixed an issue “that would cause displayed items to disappear when applied to in-ship mannequins” and another problem that made items kept in Razorleaf Storage Containers and Weapon Racks disappear if you pilot another ship.

It’s worth noting that in the previous update, Bethesda said that it’s working toward the community’s top-requested features for Starfield, and these include Brightness and Contrast controls, HDR calibration menu, Nvidia DLSS Support, and 32:9 Ultrawide Monitor support for PC players, among other additions. In the latest patch, the dev has given an update regarding these, saying, 

We are continuing to work on a larger update that will add features and improvements that we noted in our last update notes. Thank you so much for your continued feedback and support of Starfield and we look forward to a future with you on this journey.”
