Starfield feature-3

Starfield’s pre-load does not feature NVIDIA DLSS 2 or Intel XeSS

Microsoft and Bethesda have made the Windows Store version of Starfield available for pre-load, and as you may have guessed, the game does not have any signs of Intel XeSS or NVIDIA DLSS 2.

This falls in line with what we suspected when Bethesda announced its partnership with AMD. In other words, it appears that the game will only support FSR 2.0.

Now as we’ve already reported, modder PureDark plans to release a DLSS 3 Mod for Starfield. However, this mod will be available first on PureDark’s patron. And, since we haven’t seen a public release for the DLSS 3 Mods for The Last of Us Part IJedi SurvivorElden Ring and Skyrim, we can safely assume that we won’t get one for Starfield anytime soon.

Starfield will release on September 6th. This is one of the most anticipated PC games of 2023, so it will be interesting to see how the game performs on the PC platform. Bethesda claimed that AMD has worked with its team so that the game can utilize multiple CPU cores on PC. And, since the Starfield won’t support any Ray Tracing effects, it might actually run well on PC. Or at least that’s what we hope to see.

It’s also worth noting that Starfield will only support 60fps on PC. The console versions (both Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S) will be locked at 30fps. Furthermore, Bethesda has stated that the game will be friendly to modders.

Lastly, you can find here the game’s official PC system requirements. Bethesda recommends using an SSD, and the game requires around 135GB of free hard-disk space.
