Bethesda Game Studios has released its first update for the much-acclaimed title, Starfield, and it's primarily aimed at addressing top-priority bugs and stability issues. This update comes on the heels of an overwhelming response from players, who Bethesda thanked in their official announcement. The studio also committed to supporting the game for "years and years to come" and encouraged the community to continue offering feedback.

Version 1.7.29 of the update focuses on enhancing performance and stability for Xbox Series X|S, fixing issues related to installations, and implementing various improvements to reduce crashes and boost framerate. The update also corrects quest-specific blockers that players may encounter in quests like "All That Money Can Buy," "Into the Unknown," and "Shadows in Neon."

In addition to the hotfix, Bethesda revealed that future updates will introduce community-requested features such as brightness and contrast controls, an HDR calibration menu, FOV slider, and support for Nvidia DLSS and 32:9 Ultrawide Monitors for PC users. The studio is also collaborating with Nvidia, AMD, and Intel for better driver support.

But what's probably making fans giddy with excitement is the confirmation of built-in mod support, named "Creations," set to launch early next year. This feature aims to be similar to modding support in previous Bethesda titles like Skyrim and Fallout 4 and will be available across all platforms.

With a strong commitment to long-term support and a keen ear for community feedback, Starfield's journey in the gaming universe appears to be a promising one.
