Starfield is the biggest Xbox exclusive release in years but Bethesda developing it has fans worried about bugs and performance issues. While the company is well-known for these kinds of problems, one fan explains why they stick with them anyway.
According to a fairly lengthy post in the game’s subreddit, the freedom seen in Bethesda games is still unmatched. Despite not looking or running the best, these games let players get lost in whatever they want to do. If they wanted to, players never have to follow the main quest and that still means a lot to players.
“What I am trying to say with all of this is I think in the past Bethesda's games have been buggy because it does what other games fall short of and that is create a totally immersive world that grants me the freedom to approach it however I like,” says schulera. “Other games that restrict that freedom just have a lot easier time eliminating bugs and glitches.”
Despite accepting the bugs of other Bethesda games, the user is hopeful that Starfield will launch without many issues. Other fans are less optimistic due to Bethesda’s past but it’s likely they will pick the game up on day one anyway. Some fans are even planning to skip work just to play the game, showing their dedication.
The unlimited freedom seen in Skyrim and Fallout 4 has been promised in Bethesda’s sci-fi RPG; but in space. Players will be able to customize ships the way they want, dock them wherever possible, and even roleplay as their favorite sci-fi characters.
Microsoft is aware of how hyped up the game is since it led to the most-viewed online show in the company’s history. Xbox Series X consoles also have Starfield in the back of the box, replacing Xbox icon Master Chief from the Halo series.
Starfield is coming to Xbox Series and PC on September 6.
