Starfield’s Huge Beta Update Delayed to Later This Week

Earlier, Bethesda announced a huge Starfield update that was supposed to launch today. There had been some hiccups, and Bethesda postponed the update to later this week.

The announcement arrived from Bethesda’s official X profile.

Bethesda Game Studios has postponed the beta launch of Starfield’s most significant update yet. The delay, caused by an unforeseen issue the studio wishes to resolve, means the beta version will be released later in the week, with a global launch scheduled for two weeks afterward. Bethesda will announce the exact beta launch date once it’s firmly decided.

This forthcoming update is anticipated to bring more than 100 enhancements, including refined lighting, textures, and shadows, improved sun disk geometry, and corrected planet ring shadows. It will also address quest issues such as Eye of the Storm and Into the Unknown.

Fans should expect comprehensive patch notes and additional details when the update is available later in the week. Starfield can be played on Xbox Series X/S and PC and is also accessible via Game Pass. Bethesda has outlined plans for regular updates every six weeks starting in February, introducing features like new ship decorations, varied gameplay options including modifications to carry capacity, and enhanced survival mechanics. Moreover, the first narrative expansion, titled Shattered Space, is slated for release later in the year.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
