Starfield has been in players’ hands for a few weeks now, and Constellation’s explorers have noticed that the Settled Systems are home to more than their fair share of bugs. While Starfield has shipped in a much more stable state than some of Bethesda’s other titles, the expansive spacefaring RPG still has a few rough edges on both Xbox Series X|S and PC. This patch aims to remedy some of the game’s most basic bugs, but don’t expect anything major from this Starfield update.

Starfield Update 1.7.33 Patch Notes

The September 25th Starfield update mainly addresses some minor issues with characters standing in the wrong spots and fixes some crashes that would occur in rare scenarios. The main highlight is the Akila City puddle glitch being patched, which is a bummer for some. Here’s everything new with Starfield version 1.7.33.
