Starfield patch 1.7.36 is here, and with it Bethesda finally addresses one of the most player-requested features that’s been on everyone’s mind since launch. Starfield finally has an FOV slider.

Starfield finally has official FOV support thanks to Bethesda, a month after launch. The RPG game has been a massive hit with players so far, even if quite a few features haven’t been included with the game since its launch. To rectify that, Bethesda is slowly but surely patching the game, with FOV support next up.

Despite not having a proper in-game option to change the field of view at launch, there was a Starfield FOV fix in the game files. That’s all changing now though, as the settings menu in the game has sliders for FOV in both first and third-person modes.

A previous Starfield patch mentioned FOV alongside Nvidia DLSS support, HDR calibrations, and ultrawide monitor button support as well. We’re still waiting on that “eat button for food!” though, sadly.
