Bethesda Game Studios confirmed that Starfield will support DLSS
Starfield, developed by Bethesda Game Studios, launched on September 6th, 2023, for the Xbox Series S/X and PC platforms. It has garnered significant attention and fervor in recent times. However, player feedback on the game remains polarized, with one of the main criticisms being inadequate optimization.
Recently, Bethesda expressed their gratitude for the passionate support players have shown towards the game. They have acknowledged the feedback received and announced their intention to release the first set of updates. These updates aim not only to rectify existing issues but also to introduce features requested by the community. Among these are:
- – Brightness and Contrast controls
- – HDR Calibration Menu
- – FOV Slider
- – Nvidia DLSS Support (PC)
- – 32:9 Ultrawide Monitor Support (PC)
- – Eat button for food!
Of these enhancements, the most anticipated is undoubtedly the support for NVIDIA DLSS. This feature has been eagerly awaited by players with NVIDIA graphics cards, believing it can elevate the gaming experience. However, it remains unclear whether it pertains to DLSS 2 or DLSS 3. Additionally, Bethesda has yet to provide a precise implementation timeline.
It’s noteworthy that AMD previously announced a collaboration with Bethesda, becoming an exclusive partner for the PC version of “Starfield.” The game was tailored to optimize for the Ryzen 7000 series processors and the Radeon RX 7000 series graphics cards, supporting FidelityFX Super Resolution 2 (FSR 2). Regrettably, the actual performance has been somewhat underwhelming, with many players deeming its effects minimal. Numerous player-created mods have surfaced online, some of which incorporate the DLSS feature. With Bethesda’s official involvement, improved optimization is expected.
It’s also worth mentioning that NVIDIA recently released an OTA driver update, adjusting the Resizable BAR profile for “Starfield,” resulting in approximately a 5% performance boost.
