Bethesda has released a new patch for Starfield, which adds DLSS support for those on PC, as well as the ability to ingest food when it is found in the environment. This means players will be able to «enjoy those Chunks immediately or save them for later». Mmm.
This update was previously available as part of a Steam beta, but it is now available for all players.
Along with the much requested DLSS support for those Starfield players with compatible graphics cards, this update also covers a variety of other fixes and features across the board.
Starfield version 1.8.86 update, to give it its full name, will improve stealth by making it a «bit more forgiving». It will also address those moments where Andreja's head would stay permanently cloaked.
With this update in play, users should no longer lose the home ship. This was, admittedly, quite a rare occurrence, but surely a rather troublesome one for those affected.
