Starfield's latest update - 1.10.31, is now available on all platforms, and it's a big one. Tested on Steam Beta, update 1.10.31 contains a massive list of changes and features for Bethesda's space-based RPG.

Highlights of the patch include new poses for photo mode, the ability to undo during the digipick minigame (without losing a pick), and many fixes to quests, graphics, and gameplay.
