Starfield, the highly anticipated sci-fi RPG from Bethesda, is set to release soon. However, modders have already been hard at work during the early access period, creating mods that enhance the gaming experience. One such mod is the Starfield Upscaler, which allows players to replace AMD’s FSR2 technology with Nvidia DLSS or Intel XESS.
It seems that Bethesda’s partnership with AMD for the PC release of Starfield has resulted in the game only supporting FSR. This is despite the fact that Nvidia graphics cards are more commonly used by PC gamers. Thankfully, modders have stepped in to fill the gap, with the Starfield Upscaler mod becoming the top mod on Nexus Mods.
The Starfield Upscaler mod, created by modder PureDark, gives players the option to switch out FSR for Nvidia’s DLSS or Intel’s XESS. Currently, the mod only supports DLSS 2, although a premium DLSS 3 mod has also been released. The mod has already been downloaded over 200,000 times, proving its popularity among players.
It remains uncertain whether Starfield will eventually receive native support for DLSS. Bethesda has remained tight-lipped on the matter, while AMD representatives have stated that the option is available to Bethesda if they choose to implement it. Fans will have to wait and see if DLSS becomes a part of the game in the future.
Starfield is scheduled to officially launch on September 6 for PC and Xbox Series X|S. Those who purchased premium editions of the game were granted a five-day early access period.
