A new Starfield 1.8.86 update from Bethesda has become available. It brings Nvidia DLSS support for PC gamers and many improvements. Previously tested as a beta, this update allows players to consume food and drink directly in the game world. To improve performance and stability, the update fixes several memory issues and optimizes GPU performance, especially on high-end systems.
Graphics improvements include an improved ultra-wide viewing experience and new brightness and contrast settings. Additionally, several quest issues have been fixed. These changes greatly improve the gameplay in this space adventure.
On the graphics side, the update fixes background occlusion issues at ultrawide resolutions, optimizes shader compilation at launch, and adds new brightness and contrast settings, as well as HDR brightness (the latter for Xbox and Windows 11 only).
Several issues have also been fixed in the quest area. Among other things, bugs that prevented the completion of some quests, such as “Everything Money Can Buy,” “Blast Zone,” and “Echoes of the Past,” have been fixed. This includes fixing issues that prevented access to certain areas or items in the game.
