Wait for Bethesda to Fix Bugs
Starfield, like previous Bethesda titles, is an extremely complex game with tons of moving parts. And because it’s ambitious, it’s likely going to have a problems.
Matt Booty, head of Xbox Game Studios, told Giant Bomb that if Starfield "shipped today, this would be the, you know, have the fewest bugs of any game from Bethesda has ever shipped with."
Bethesda seems to have put a lot of muscle into testing and people playing the game early (under embargo) have said it's been smooth sailing so far. These are great signs, but the game won't be perfect at launch.
Games like Starfield, for better or worse, are marathons, not sprints. It will take Bethesda time to patch up problems, big and small.
The game will have issues at launch and if you’re unwilling to deal with these problems, you might be better off waiting for Bethesda to issue patches to stabilize quests, enemies, weapons, and other glitches impacting the game’s performance.
Bethesda has learned from its past mistakes, and not having to develop Starfield for PS5 certainly helps, but that doesn’t mean there won't be funny bugs and frustrating problems.
