Starfield’s newest update, 1.8.88, is now live! After a period of testing the Steam Beta for the game, this update comes to all players on all platforms. The update fixes a common bug where space debris such as asteroids and wrecks would become stuck to your ship, just requiring players to reload a save to fix it. Notably, this doesn’t fix… erm… New Atlantis from coming with you, but the devs are still working on that one.
This is in addition to a few other small changes, which you can see in the full change log below:
Starfield Update 1.8.88 Change Log
- Addressed an issue that would cause space matter to become stuck to player’s ship during space travel. Loading a save will now remove the space clingon.
- Please note: This fix should address any space matter being stuck in your travels, but not in instances where player ships have New Atlantis attached. A fix for that will be released in a later update.
- Fixed an issue that prevents random guns from spawning in a newly created Weapon Case after loading a save.
- [MSS/Xbox] Fixed an issue where players could experience crashes while saving during long playthrough without going through the Unity.
So, with that, you are finally free from space debris (though not from New Atlantic Attachment Syndrome)! Might be time to take those engines out for a spin, free from pet rocks and other detritus.
