Starfield is the latest game developed by Bethesda Game Studios and published by ZeniMax Media.

The game was released on September 6, 2023, on the Xbox Series X|S and PC.

You’ll likely use the starter ship, The Frontier, in Starfield for quite some time. Buying a new ship is expensive, and most of us have a pittance to our name in the Settled Systems. But what about stealing ships in Starfield? If you want to live the pirate lifestyle and commandeer a ship without paying a dime, we’ve got you covered! How to Steal Starships in Starfield To steal ships in Starfield, you must first disable the ship in combat […]

Starfield clearly wants to live passively and explore the galaxy, uncovering the mysteries of the universe and cataloging flora and fauna on abandoned moons in the deep reaches of space. But some of us want to terrorize the Settled Systems as a space pirate. Or, act as an avenging angel dishing out justice to the ne’er-do-well of space. Here is where to find space battles in Starfield! How to Find Ships to Fight in Starfield Finding space battles in Starfield […]

It has now been more than five months since Starfield hit the market and rocketed up the charts in historic fashion. It became the biggest launch in the history of Bethesda Game Studios, pulling in ten million players in a matter of days and dominating headlines for weeks on end. Since then, the natural turning of time has led millions of those players away from the game to greener pastures as the single-player, space-faring epic dries up. On Steam, Starfield’s […]

You’ll stumble upon all manner of points of interest (POI) in Starfield, with plenty of procedural generation and handmade content in almost every star system. One such POI is the Autonomous Staryard, and despite its name, you can’t use it as a staryard. The interior, however, houses plenty of challenges to tackle, and here is where to find the Autonomous Staryard in Starfield! How to Find the Autonomous Staryard in Starfield To find the Autonomous Staryard in Starfield, travel to […]

Reputable insider and leaker NateTheHate has taken to Twitter to shoot down the rumors that Starfield will be coming to PlayStation 5. Earlier this week, a new report claimed that Starfield was on its way to the PlayStation 5. NateTheHate ‘confirmed’ that the news was accurate minutes after the report, stating, “this report is accurate”. However, things have seemingly changed, and now, NateTheHate’s latest tweet suggests that the information is not accurate. Taking to Twitter, Nate said, “I’ve rechecked the […]

Several new claims have suggested that Starfield, originally slated to be an Xbox exclusive could be coming to the PlayStation 5 soon. In a new report published by XboxEra, it’s said that Starfield will be coming to the PlayStation 5 following the ‘Shattered Space’ expansion release on Xbox, which is scheduled later this year. The report outlines that Hi-Fi Rush and Sea of Thieves will also be coming to rival platforms soon, with the announcement that Hi-Fi Rush could release […]

Starfield’s biggest update ever is now available to everyone on all platforms, Bethesda has announced. This new update features “over 100 fixes and improvements” according to Bethesda. The updates include a fix for the game crashing when switching from Fullscreen to Windowed mode on PC, multiple graphics updates, fixes for missing terrain at outposts, quest updates, and more. “We’re grateful for all the feedback we’ve seen and received and will continue to monitor and track your issues and critiques,” Bethesda […]

Bethesda Game Studios has revealed that Starfield’s most sizeable update since it was released in September 2023 is set to hit Steam Beta on January 17. That’ll kick off a testing period, with the update being released globally two weeks later, once the beta testers have validated that there is nothing wrong with the update. It was claimed by Bethesda that ‘over 100 fixes and improvements’ are coming as part of the update to the game that is fast falling […]

It was revealed recently that Starfield had scooped an award for the Most Innovative Gameplay in the Steam Awards 2023. This award came mere months after the release of Bethesda Game Studios’ space-faring RPG epic, which dropped in September and promptly picked up more than ten million players in the space of a week. However, as time went on, the holes began to show and flaws were pushed to the surface, with many players coming away from Starfield with a […]

Starfield was released by Bethesda Game Studios on September 6, 2023. It was hailed as being a monumental, enormous open-world game with untold potential, and it was the first new IP from the firm in more than two decades. In interviews, it was revealed that the concept for Starfield was more than twenty years old, and it took this long to develop it because Bethesda Game Studios wanted to produce the perfect game. That wasn’t the result, unfortunately. Recently, Starfield’s […]

As we approach the end of 2023, Bethesda Game Studios has offered a mighty update and a look-ahead for one of the biggest games of the year – Starfield. In a blog post detailing the game’s performance and what’s to come, Bethesda has given the 13 million people who have played Starfield so far a glimpse of what’s arriving in the space-faring RPG epic in 2024. It’s quite a lot, and it’ll be following the cadence that Bethesda Game Studios […]

Recently, Bethesda Game Studios took to Reddit to discuss Starfield’s latest update (1.8.88), reeling off a few paragraphs about what’s coming and what the team is working on. It was stressed that the group maintaining Starfield is ‘hard at work on many of the issues’ being experienced by the community at large and that there are technical improvements on the horizon, as well as some quality-of-life fixes and new features being developed. There was talk of new city maps, ‘new […]

It has been almost three months since Starfield was released and became a twisted overnight phenomenon. It picked up mixed feedback but managed to sell over ten million copies in just a few days, becoming regarded as the biggest launch in Bethesda’s history. Over time, Starfield’s reputation has wavered as more and more players and publications realise that it was dramatically overhyped and didn’t deliver as well as everyone hoped it would. On Steam, the game’s player count has plummeted […]

Starfield was a long time in the making and the first single-player game from Bethesda Softworks since Fallout 4 in 2015. It looks like it will be a long time before we see The Elder Scrolls VI be released, so it is a good job that Starfield is a huge game that will keep you busy for a while. But, if you want to continue your Space exploration journey, or see what else Bethesda has to offer, here are five […]

In a recent financial update, Microsoft’s CEO, Satya Nadella, revealed something about Starfield that we maybe could have worked out for ourselves – but getting confirmation of it from the top of the firm is still impressive. It was stated that Starfield generated so many Game Pass sign-ups when it launched that it became the highest single-day add of subscribers to the service ever. It has been operational for more than six years – and in that time, no other […]

The latest Starfield update from Bethesda has added the highly requested FOV slider to the game. The new Starfield Update, named 1.7.36 has also added the following changes: GENERAL PERFORMANCE AND STABILITY QUEST The latest updates comes following a huge update in late September that addressed issues including various performance problems for players. According to documents leaked as part of the major Xbox leak last month, Bethesda expected to make almost $1 Billion in revenue on Starfield during its lifetime. […]

Starfield is a space-faring epic from Bethesda Game Studios, planting players firmly in a futuristic environment and giving them a massive open universe to explore. It’s a game that promises hundreds of hours of entertainment, but it’s not the first open-world space game and it probably won’t be the last. With that in mind, here are five of the best games like Starfield, just in case you want an alternative. Games Like Starfield That You Can Play Now Starfield may […]

I was just as hyped as anyone else in the weeks before Starfield’s release. It was a tough position to be in, reporting on the leaks while trying everything possible to avoid spoilers, but I managed it. I was locked in from the minute it went live, and in the earliest days of the game’s lifecycle, I poured time, effort, and money into the game. That’s right – money. I enjoyed it so much that I went out a week […]

Starfield has been around for just over a month, and for the most part, the community is still enjoying it. There’s plenty to be done, from New Game + to building endless ships, and from going toe-to-toe with space pirates to wooing your companions. Alternatively, you could do what one Starfield player has done and scan every single planet possible in the game. That’s right – ‘DoomZero’ on Reddit shared the information that they’ve now scanned every single planet in […]

Getting started right in Starfield with an effective outpost on a planet is crucial – But what are some of the best planets to visit in Starfield to set up your outpost? In this guide, we’ll be breaking down the best 6 planets to visit. 6. Maheo II – Maheo System Maheo II has one of the widest varieties of biomes to explore and offers beginning travelers eight different resources. Maheo II is a beautiful planet and whilst it can […]

Bethesda has released a new update for Starfield. A small update, per the company, it addresses various performance issues surrounding characters, star stations, ships, and more. “We are continuing to work on a larger update that will add features and improvements that we noted in our last update notes,” Bethesda said. Thank you so much for your continued feedback and support of Starfield and we look forward to a future with you on this journey.” You can see the full update […]

Boy, those words will kick up a storm – but let me explain. It was recently discovered that Starfield has officially crossed a threshold and is rated lower than Fallout 76 – Bethesda’s beleaguered MMORPG – on Steam. It has just dropped to an overall positivity rating of 71.37% – and Fallout 76 has, at the time of writing, a rating of 71.76%. There are around 1,100 positive reviews in it – that’s Fallout 76’s edge. It’s not exactly a […]

Bethesda knew it would have a hit on its hands with Starfield when the game finally launched, and its revenue projections for the game showed that. According to documents leaked as part of the major Xbox leak last week, Bethesda expected to make almost $1 Billion in revenue on Starfield alone. That estimate comes over a four-year span. In year one, the company projected $600 Million followed by $215 Million in year two. Years three and four see the numbers […]

The Ryujin Industries questline in Starfield is the most satisfying story arc to play if you’re a big fan of stealth. Every mission either involves you digipicking master locks to steal some legendary loot or pickpocketing your next victim. The entire Ryujin Industries faction is straight-up an evil conglomerate that will ask you to do their bidding, kind of like a lesser evil version of Arasaka from Cyberpunk. Most of the missions within the Ryujin Industries questline will play out […]

There’s your milestone – Starfield has racked up a count of ten million players just two weeks after launch, Bethesda has reported. It’s a monumental figure that’s a testament to the pulling power of Bethesda Game Studios’ biggest launch in history, and from the looks of things, there’s still a huge amount of life in the tank. Starfield has been a dominant force in social circles for months, with many players actively trying to decide whether or not they like […]

Building and docking a ship in Starfield are perhaps the most difficult things to do because of the messy user interface. It’s convoluted, weird, and strenuous to understand. Though if you still somehow manage to wrap your head around it, you’re faced with an even greater hurdle, picking the best ship weapons and parts in Starfield. With the right weapons and infrastructure, your little Starfield space cruiser can become a warship that rivals the likes of the dreadnoughts from Star […]

Side quests are one of the most fun things to do in Bethesda games, and in Starfield they have only got better. Some would argue they’re even more enjoyable than the main story, especially the Crimson Fleet questline which has you pirating across all of space as an undercover spy or a double agent. In the Crimson Fleet questline, two factions, the UC SysDef space police, and the Crimson Fleet pirates are at war with each other. After activating the […]

I’m playing Starfield very slowly – like, glacial. I’m picking off the achievements one by one and I’ve just snagged the ‘Starcrossed’ award that threw a hefty 20 G at my account. To do it, I had to fully and completely fall head over heels in love with a companion – and I picked Sarah Morgan of Constellation. But what I didn’t expect from Starfield before I set out on my journey of romance and courtship was a deeply emotional, […]

When Starfield launched earlier this month, two of the immediate complaints about the game were that it didn’t support Nvidia’s DLSS instead opting to use AMD’s FSR technology, and it didn’t include an FOV. Thankfully the community fixed those problems quickly, with multiple FOV slider mods for Starfield appearing within the first days of the game’s release. A DLSS mod was also created by PureDark, who went on to lock the DLSS 3.5 version behind a paywall, making over $40,000 […]

Struggling with performance issues in Starfield? This is how to fix PC performance issues in Starfield, including improving your FPS. Starfield is incredibly demanding and even the most high-end PCs are struggling to keep up with Bethesda’s latest game. Todd Howard, the game director for Starfield, has previously told the community to upgrade their hardware in order to get the game running better, but even gamers with an RTX 4090 have reported issues getting the level of performance they expect […]

Planets aren’t the only thing Bethesda added loads of in Starfield. Their latest space game offers endless ways to customize your character, beat the main story, and cruise around the open-world, and while this sounds cool and all, the mechanics often feel too daunting. Starfield’s weapon tier system is especially what will give you a hard time since it’s so complicated. The hundreds of weapons in Starfield seem to be categorized in terms of rarity and tier, but players even […]

It took less than a week, but Starfield has passed Skyrim in peak concurrent players on Steam. According to Steamdb, Starfield has a peak player count of 330,723 players on Steam. In comparison, Skyrim only peaked at 287,411 on the platform. As far as console players are concerned, there’s no public data available to compare the two games. The only numbers we have to go on in that sense are what the publishers provide. And, so far, Starfield has been […]

Starfield isn’t running short on mods right now – especially the bizarre ones – but Todd Howard has confirmed that officially supported mods will be coming to the Starfield ecosystem in 2024. For the most part, modders have already had their way with Starfield, introducing UI mods, customising companions, and inserting images of *checks notes* Phil Spencer onto flashlight beams everywhere. However, in 2024, Starfield’s modders will get access to the Creation Kit, which is Bethesda’s official toolset for creating […]

Considering how gigantic the scale of Starfield is, you might not be surprised to learn it has hundreds of neat little Easter eggs. The references range from Bethesda hinting at its previous titles like Skyrim to subtly mentioning the most popular memes of the decade. Since the Starfield Easter eggs are nearly uncountable, it’ll take ages to list them all down. Instead, this article features the best of them which you should be checking out as soon as you’re past […]

Starfield’s players have started scouring planets, searching aggressively for the existence of an ‘Abandoned Research Tower’ point of interest. They’re doing this for one simple reason – finding one can net you thousands of credits in seconds, but it’s something that the game doesn’t actually highlight can be done. If you land on a planet because you’ve found one of these towers, or if you subsequently find one while exploring, you can unlock all the planetary survey data in a […]

Following Starfield’s already impressive success, it seems unrealistic to imagine that any other Bethesda Game Studios titles wouldn’t be exclusive to Xbox, but that might just be the case with Elder Scrolls 6. The long-awaited sequel to 2011’s TES V: Skyrim is reportedly on the fence in terms of exclusivity, if Phil Spencer is to be believed. In a recent interview with Bloomberg, Phil ‘P3’ Spencer, the Head of Xbox, was grilled on the upcoming fantasy RPG epic that entered […]

It has been revealed that Starfield has surpassed six million players, which officially makes it the biggest game launch for Bethesda ever. Since launching into early access last week, Starfield’s popularity has surged on all platforms, and it was revealed that on launch day, more than one million people were concurrently playing Bethesda’s all-new space-faring epic. On Twitter, the official Starfield channel broke the news that a stunning milestone had been punched clean through. As of right now, Starfield is […]

It happens almost every time a major game is released. The critic reviews come out and then players get their hands on it to see what all the hype is about. And at that point, it doesn’t really matter anymore. Sites like Metacritic are sure to see a wave of people coming to leave negative reviews of the game whether they played it or not. And Starfield is no exception as it’s currently being review bombed just a day after […]

For as long as video games have been around, console wars have existed and are perhaps fought as strongly as ever due to social media and the ease of sparking a debate or argument with fellow gamers. While most of us find it amusing to watch unfold, some people are deep in the trenches and live and die by their chosen gaming platform. It isn’t unusual for one side of the war to call for the cancelation or firing of […]

Calling Starfield a massive game would be an understatement. With reportedly over 1,000 planets to explore, you’re inevitably going to need a place to store your Contraband, gather resources, and restock up on some essentials. That’s where the Starfield Outpost system comes in. Outposts are integral structures in Starfield that serve as a base of operations for you, though, unlike the Constellation’s lodge, you’ll be the one building and designing these on different planets. You can build them nearly anywhere, […]

Starfield is available for everyone and Bethesda’s director and executive producer Todd Howard has been making the rounds doing interview after interview to promote the game. The game, which is available both on Xbox Series X|S and PC, In an interview on launch day with Bloomberg, Howard was asked right away, “Why did you not optimize this game for PC?”. “Uh, we did,” Howard said in response to the question. “It’s running great. It is a next gen PC game, […]

Starfield has only been released a week in early access and even less for the full game and players have wasted no time in picking it apart and finding many exploits and glitches to make the experience more enjoyable. Speedrunners have already beaten the game in under three hours, and it didn’t take long for players to flex their creativity by creating some excellent characters based on real people. It is not surprising that an exploit in Starfield has already […]

Starfield is here, and it’s clearly living up to the hype surrounding it if the early player numbers are to be believed. Of course, that doesn’t mean there aren’t questions from players about game features and design choices by Bethesda. One of those choices is Starfield not having ground vehicles. That question was asked to Bethesda director and executive producer Todd Howard during an interview with Bloomberg on Wednesday. “It’s something we considered. We’re going to do outer space; we’re […]

Starfieldmania is running wild, and it’s smashing records and performance figures across the board. First, it was claimed by one data aggregation channel that more than two million people paid to play Starfield in early access, and now, Phil ‘P3’ Spencer has taken to the social airwaves to highlight that during its global launch, Starfield tipped over one million concurrent players. It has been the most talked-about game for several months, and now that it’s here, that chatter shows no […]

Starfield has a very comprehensive character creation suite and allows players to meticulously craft their ideal characters. Of course, it didn’t take long for people’s creativity to be put to the test and the results are very surprising, with many recreating iconic figures and entertainers. From actors to fictional characters and even world leaders, there are already dozens of great characters being made and shared by the community. Here are some of the best Starfield character creations so far. Todd […]

Starfield is officially out in full release for PC and Xbox Series X|S, and there is still some division over it being an Xbox console exclusive. While many still think that the game should’ve also been released on PlayStation 5, Bethesda executive producer and director Todd Howard isn’t one of them. In an interview with the BBC, Howard said that Starfield being an exclusive allowed Bethesda to create an overall better game for players. “When you’re making something exclusive then […]

As we’re sure you’re aware, Starfield is a game that is so expansive that you can get completely lost doing the plethora of side missions, resource harvesting, ship building, and more. But what if you’re someone who just wants to beeline the story so you can get to New Game Plus (NG+) as fast as possible? How long will this take? How many missions are involved? With this guide we’ll run you through exactly that, detailing the full Starfield Main […]
