This patch was enough to boost the game. Since its last update, Bethesda’s flagship RPG has seen its number of players increase.

Great progress for Starfield

This is news that must necessarily delight Bethesda, Starfield 60fps update increases Xbox player count by 72%. An observation made according to figures collected by True Achievements, which also allows the game to gain nine places in the latest ranking of Xbox games and to join the Top 20. The update is also accompanied by new performance parameters. display, improved surface maps and other smaller improvements.

On the forums, many say they are delighted with the new features: “I played it again. The surface maps are really useful (and it’s absolutely criminal that they were missing at first) – they’re really well done too“, “II’ve seen nothing but praise for the update and the game recently. Detractors give the game another chance and it pays off“, “It seems to be the kind of game where the longer I wait to play, the better. Kind of like Cyberpunk“, can we read among the comments published on neogaf or gamefaqs.

Other additions on the way

One of the most criticized aspects of Starfield was the lack of a 60 FPS mode for Xbox Series players. Obviously, you’ll be able to choose the settings that best suit your TV or display, with options of 30, 40, 60 FPS, or an uncapped frame rate on VRR-enabled displays. Note that a few other major features are on the horizon, such as a new land vehicle to explore moons and planets more quickly, but also official mod support and the highly anticipated Shattered Space expansion. Shattered Space will arrive this fall, and if we don’t yet know what this new adventure will be about, we should normally hear about it at the Xbox Games Showcase in June.

Far from being a failure, Starfield had reached a total of 13 million players since its release at the end of last year. Of these players, 5 million completed the game by reaching the credits. The studio also revealed that the average play time was 40 hours, an impressive figure for a fully single-player game.
