Bethesda has just released a fresh update, labeled as version 1.7.33, for their expansive sci-fi RPG, Starfield, and it’s ready for players to grab right now on both PC and Xbox platforms. Despite earlier promises that Starfield would be Bethesda’s most polished game at launch, it hasn’t been completely devoid of bugs and technical hiccups. However, the development team has been hard at work releasing updates to make the overall gaming experience better.
