Bethesda Reveals Upcoming Starfield Updates: FOV, DLSS, New Food Option, and More

Starfield's initial patch, known as hotfix 1.7.29, primarily addresses minor adjustments, with future updates set to introduce new food choices, DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) support, a FOV (Field of View) Slider, and various other improvements.


Despite receiving widespread acclaim, Starfield's launch lacked several expected features. PC players, in particular, felt the absence of DLSS support, while others found it strange that the game did not include a FOV Slider.

Fortunately, Bethesda Game Studios recognizes these issues with its latest adventure. While minor problems have been tackled in the initial hotfix, resolving more significant shortcomings will take some time.
