It also addresses memory-related issues, improves gameplay, and introduces NVIDIA DLSS support.

Bethesda has released Starfield Beta Update 1.8.83, a new patch for its space-themed RPG that lets Steam players explore the upcoming Starfield update in a dedicated Beta version of the game before it becomes available to all Xbox and PC players later this month.

The update comes with a plethora of new features and general improvements, introducing NVIDIA DLSS support, enhancing the game's overall performance, and, most importantly, addressing the unsettling and unnatural appearance of the game's NPCs by fixing their eyes.

Earlier, one of Bethesda's developers addressed Starfield's procedurally generated planets, saying that they are empty by design. According to a verified Steam user, "Bethesda_FalcoYamaoka", the planets were intentionally designed to be empty and evoke a feeling of being overwhelmed.

Additionally, the developer quoted Bethesda's Managing Director, Ashley Cheng, who had stirred controversy among fans back in September by likening Starfield's desolate spaces to the experiences of the first astronauts on the Moon.
