Bethesda released a minor patch for Starfield on December 11, 2023. With this small patch, we see any space junk that may have inadvertently stuck to a player’s ship released. If New Atlantis is stuck to your ship, you’ll have to wait for a future patch. Newly created weapon crates should have random gun spawns restored after loading a save at your outpost. They fixed an issue where long playthroughs could crash on save. And that rounds up this tiny patch. Have fun in the Starfield.
Starfield Update 1.8.88 Full Patch Notes
Our next update coming out of our Steam Beta is now available for all players. This small update addresses a few issues including a crash that could occur on some Xbox and Microsoft Store playthroughs, an issue with weapon cases in Outposts, and we say goodbye to the “pet asteroid” that would follow some players through space.
We appreciate all of you who participated in our Steam Beta and will continue to read your feedback and make updates to the game.
Thanks for playing!
FIXES AND IMPROVEMENTS
- 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.
