Starfield Is Getting DLSS Support On Steam Next Week

Good news!

As promised, Bethesda is hard at work on implementing NVIDIA DLSS support to its mammoth sci-fi RPG, Starfield, with the game getting its first implementation of the popular feature in a Steam Beta update next week.

Players will be able to enable DLSS along with greater display and HDR controls, and other optimisations and improvements to the game, should they choose to opt-in via Steam Beta. The changes will then go live in various forms for the rest of players on PC as well as Xbox:

Bethesda Game Studios has released the first details on some upcoming new updates to Starfield, which includes a few welcome additions and remedies to some of the biggest player complaints – like the lack of official support for NVIDIA’s DLSS image reconstruction tech, or the lack of an actual, useful map when exploring cities. That last one might not arrive right away, but a new hotfix out now adds some stability and performance improvements to the game, with the following features expected to roll out soon:

Bethesda also promised that built-in mod support for the game via Creations is coming early next year. In the post to the game’s Steam community, the studio said:

“Additionally, we are working on our built-in mod support (Creations) that will work across all platforms similar to what we’ve done with Skyrim and Fallout 4. This full support is planned to launch early next year. Until then, we know our PC community is already very active in the modding space and if you have any feedback on how we can make this better, please let us know . Modding and creating in our games will always be a vital and important part of who we are, and we love seeing the community get off to such a strong start.”
