There is nothing worse than being playing one game that you've waited for months or even years and then, what happens? It crashes and you're back at your console menu staring at the screen. Not a good feeling. So let's see how to fix Starfield crashing and get back gaming.

Being a Bethesda game, a number of crashing is unfortunately something that we are taking for granted. No disrespect to the studio, but their games do not have a reputation of being the most stable.

So let's see how to fix Starfield crashing and get back to space playing without issues, shall we?

How to fix Starfield crashing

Naturally, the first thing would be to identify why is the game crashing, but that is easier said than done. So, overall, we would recommend that - especially if you're playing on a PC - that you reboot your system and - most of all - check for updates before retrying again.

When games are freshly released, most often there are specific driver updates that may fix potential problems and solve some of those crashing issues. Another important thing is that, if you're running the game on PC, you close all other background apps.

Overall, it would be a good idea to also disable your Antivirus as well, at least while you're playing. Most often those programs that are constantly running in the background can cause problems and might indeed end up being the culprit for a game crashing. Firewall are also often a potential problem, but we would not recommend disabling it, if not for just a short time to try it out.

Check the Starfield system requirements

Naturally, another good idea is to check whether your PC meets the minimum system requirements. They are as follows:

  • OS: Windows 10
  • Processor: AMD Ryzen 5 2600X, Intel Core i7-6800K
  • Memory: 16GB RAM
  • Graphics Card: AMD Radeon RX 5700, NVIDIA GeForce 1070 Ti
  • Hard-drive space: 125 GB

Remember that especially for Hard Drive space you have to leave some space for the game and other apps as well, so having only the bare minimum is not recommended.

Also, better to meet the recommended specs which are as follows:

  • OS: Windows 10 or 11
  • Processor: AMD Ryzen 5 3600X, Intel i5-10600K
  • Memory: 16GB RAM
  • Graphics Card: AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080
  • Hard-drive space: 125 GB
