Bethesda’s Starfield: All Gameplay Leaks You Should See Right Now

Bethesda’s immensely anticipated Starfield is just around the corner, and the hype surrounding it is at an all-time high. We are witnessing all sorts of leaks about the game just before its release. First, the whole storyline was apparently leaked on Twitter by a user. Then, another person illegally stole and uploaded 40-45 minutes of gameplay video on YouTube. While we condemn these unethical actions, let us look at a few harmless gameplay leaks from Starfield.

Bethesda’s Starfield: All Gameplay Leaks 

New Game Plus Mode

  • Starfield will have an extensive New Game Plus feature to incentivize replayability.
  • Usually, this mode features a system where players are able to start a new game with all the resources and gear they have collected till the end of the game.
  • However, this mode in Starfield is going to include new and unique mechanics that directly relate to the main game’s story.

Possible DLSS Support

  • Since Starfield is a game with backing from AMD, it would exclusively support their FSR2 instead of Nvidia’s DLSS. Everyone thought that was going to be the case around this time.
  • However, a surprising announcement from AMD has made it clear that they are not in control of whether Starfield includes DLSS, and they are free to do so if they want to.
  • With this fact in mind, we may see possible DLSS support in the future.
