More changes are coming to Bethesda’s newest role-playing game franchise, Starfield. This time, it’ll be bringing, among other fixes, FSR3 frame generation technology from AMD in its second update for 2024 so far.

Bethesda has released notes on its official website for the latest patch, currently called Update 1.9.67, which is available now on Steam Beta. Steam players can try this update and provide feedback before the studio releases the full patch in a few weeks.

Aside from introducing FSR3, this patch will also attempt to fix a Form ID issue that crashes when players visit too many locations in a single save.

FIXES AND IMPROVEMENTS

GRAPHICS

  • Added support for Intel Xe Super Sampling (XeSS). (PC)
  • Fixed an issue that could make the clouds appear to vibrate when using DLSS performance mode. (PC)
  • Fixed minor visual artifacts that could occur when aiming with a weapon or task swapping.

This update is part of a series of patches that Bethesda promised as part of its 2024 Roadmap for Starfield, which they revealed just before the start of the Christmas holidays.
