Bethesda’s Starfield Faces Negative Steam Reviews and Low Player Count

Highlights

  • Starfield Steam reviews turn "Mostly Negative".

  • Player count lower than Bethesda's past releases.

  • Bethesda planning updates and an expansion.

Bethesda Game Studios’ Starfield is experiencing a notable decline in Steam user reviews since its release, contrary to what one might expect for a high-profile game.

The title’s ratings have significantly dropped, with recent reviews showing only 28 percent positivity, effectively earning a “Mostly Negative” status. In comparison, the overall user review score sits at a “Mixed” level, with 64 percent positivity.

Concerns for Starfield have deepened as player engagement metrics reveal a troubling scene. The game reached a 24-hour peak of just 14,900 concurrent players, falling short of Bethesda’s previous successes such as The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim Special Edition and Fallout 4, which boast 29,092 and 20,679 peak players respectively. This lower performance has been a point of concern since November.

Many factors contribute to the declining popularity of Starfield. While some negative reviews may stem from unsatisfactory interactions with Bethesda Customer Support, a substantial number of players have also expressed their discontent with aspects of the game, including world design, loading screen times, and the narrative quality.

Despite the current turmoil, Starfield originally received a warm reception from critics. Available on Xbox Series X/S and PC, the game had a strong start, surpassing 13 million players by the end of the previous year.

Bethesda remains committed to improving the game, revealing plans for new gameplay features, travel methods, and an upcoming expansion called Shattered Space slated for 2024.
