Bethesda er begyndt at respondere på negative brugeranmeldelser af Starfield
"Never stop exploring!"
Starfield har fået masser af positive anmeldelser, men det lader samtidig til at mange brugere på særligt PC ikke er syndeligt tilfredse med Bethesda Game Studios' seneste RPG. Spillet holder lige nu en "Mixed" rating på Steam, og der er mange brugeranmeldelser der blandt andet påpeger hvor livløs meget af spillets galakse føles.
Men det er blevet noteret af blandt andet IGN, at Bethesda så småt er begyndt at respondere på disse negative brugeranmeldelser. Eksempelvis har en bruger skrevet dette:
"Boring and overrated. There is a wide universe to explore, filled mostly with empty planets. I understand. They have to do that to sell you on the idea that this is a whole universe, but that doesn't make the game more fun. You can land on any planet and explore the copy/pasted locations. You will see the exact same locations from one end of the universe to the other and everywhere in between. A hodgepodge of messy, slapped together mechanics. Bloated skill trees, 'exploring', crafting, base building, an RPG, an FPS, a space opera. Starfield doesn't know what it wants to be. As wide as the ocean and as deep as a puddle. You can explore everywhere but why would you want to?"
Og her har Bethesda skrevet dette som svar:
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review for Starfield!
We are sorry that you do not like landing on different planets and are finding many of them empty.
Some of Starfield's planets are meant to be empty by design — but that's not boring. "When the astronauts went to the moon, there was nothing there. They certainly weren't bored." The intention of Starfield's exploration is to evoke a feeling of smallness in players and make you feel overwhelmed. You can continue to explore and find worlds that do have resources you need or hidden outposts to look through.
