Starfield, one of 2023’s biggest releases this year, has shown to be a juggernaut in its own regards. Although leaving without an award at The Game Awards this December, it has ranked on of the most successful titles on Steam. In that, it made it into the Platinum categories for Top Sellers, New Releases, Most Played, Steam Deck, and Played on Controller on PC. Not to mention also outselling both EA FC 24 & Mortal Kombat 1 during its release in September as well.
Looking ahead, the game is already primed for post-launch support. Previously, it was confirmed that the first major expansion for the game will be ‘Shattered Space’ further exploring the infinite depths of space within the new universe. Even more, it is promised mod support is being primed for Starfield in the coming future too – likely across PC & Xbox.
From the latest ‘Starfield End the of Year Update’ blog from Bethesda, the developer is promising plenty of improvements, updates, and fixes for Starfield entering into 2024.
We’ve been hard at work on everything coming to Starfield in 2024. While we’re not ready to go into all the details just yet, here’s a glimpse at some of the things we’re cooking up. First, we’re targeting updates roughly every six weeks starting in February. These updates will include everything from quality-of-life improvements to content and feature updates. Join our Steam Beta branch to be the first to try these updates as they begin rolling out.
We’ve been reading all your feedback and are excited to start launching these new features. We’ll be adding new ways to travel and you’ll now be able to access city maps while exploring the major cities. For those of you who love ship building, we’ll also be expanding on ship customization with ship decorations, new ship building options, and more.
We’re also excited to be adding all new Gameplay options. With these new settings you’ll be able to alter your gameplay to allow for an easier or more challenging experience that will expand beyond our normal “Difficulty” setting. These will allow you to easily customize carry capacity, cargo access distance, ship damage, vendor credits, how you suffer afflictions, new survival mechanics, and more.
“Next, official mod support will be coming to Starfield with the launch of Creations. Beginning early next year, Starfield will be getting its own exporter and you’ll have access to a new Creation Kit. Modding has always been an enormous part of our games, with incredible community-made content constantly bringing fresh new experiences. With the scale and systems in Starfield, we can’t wait to see what you come up with!
“And lastly, the team is hard at work on the development of Shattered Space, our first major expansion coming next year. You’ll have new story content, new locations, new gear, and much more. We can’t wait to share more with you next year. Thank you so much for all the amazing feedback and please keep it coming. We do read it all, and it guides us in what you really want to see in the game going forward.”
