Starfield getting a patch ahead of early access

It is expected that Starfield will receive a patch on launch day. According to reports, the impending update will repair gameplay bugs and enhance the efficiency of the upcoming Xbox exclusive.

The update will arrive before the start of the early access period.

Online information regarding the day-one patch has been leaked. The patch details for the upcoming update to Starfield were made public by Insider Gaming ahead of the start of early access on September 1. It appears there are no game-breaking bugs at launch after reading the patch notes. According to reports, Starfield is Bethesda‘s “least buggy” game to date.

The update, known as Starfield 1.7.23, is said to improve the game’s performance and contain a number of gameplay fixes. A virtual keyboard will also be included in the patch for players of the upcoming space RPG on the Steam Deck. It is said that the upcoming patch would be 15 GB.

Insider Gaming also obtained a paper that outlines Starfield’s compatibility with mobile devices. According to the document, “Starfield will run on both the SteamDeck and the ROG Ally with the correct drivers, but the performance may suffer on the hardware below the recommended minimum specs.”
