Starfield leaks have revealed new details on creation credits, space magic powers, title screen, all achievements, absence of Nvidia DLSS & Intel XeSS, and gameplay mechanics.
As the highly anticipated release of Starfield draws near, excitement among fans is reaching a fever pitch. However, with great anticipation comes the looming threat of spoilers, potentially jeopardizing the experience of diving into the game’s universe fresh.
A word of caution, those who wish to explore the game on their own and remain spoiler free, may leave the post now.
New details about the upcoming action role-playing game Starfield from Bethesda Game Studios have been disclosed thanks to leaked pictures.
Starfield Leak: Gameplay
The screenshots below feature Starfield gameplay footage and an inventory menu.
Starfield Leak: Character Traits
Screenshots from the public QA build of Starfield have revealed the character traits that are included in the game.
Starfield Leak: Title Screen and Space Magic Powers
Let’s kick off with the Starfield leak of the title screen, which has ignited excitement among fans. The screen appears plain and simple.
One fan commented, “I’m quite fond of it. Neat and straightforward. I’m getting hyped.” Another shared, “If this is real, it’s pretty sleek and much better designed compared to recent games like Modern Warfare II. The presence of a Photo Gallery option seems to confirm the inclusion of a photo mode.”
Subsequently, a datamined list of Starfield Space Magic powers surfaced. The developers had hinted at space magic towards the end of the Starfield Direct, and fans are thrilled to see concrete details related to it.
Starfield Leak: Creation Credits Returns
Another Starfield leak is an updated Steam End User License Agreement (EULA) that has raised curiosity due to its reference to “Creation Credits.” This reference potentially suggests a return of the Creation Club or “paid mods” service. For those unfamiliar, Creation Credits involve paid mods, where Bethesda collaborates with modders to develop mods that are rigorously tested for integration into the game at the same technical level as DLC. This differs from regular mods that come with the caveat “use at your own risk.” The revenue generated is then shared with the modders.
The initial backlash against this concept was understandable, but with time, it’s become evident that Bethesda’s intention isn’t to replace traditional mods. Instead, it serves as a means to sponsor certain mods and reward creators.
Starfield Leak: Nvidia DLSS & Intel XeSS Missing
An exploration of pre-load data by dataminer Sebasti66855537 for Bethesda Game Studios’ upcoming RPG, Starfield, indicates the absence of Nvidia DLSS or Intel XeSS support. Sebasti66855537 shared on Twitter that while analyzing Starfield’s pre-load files on PC, they found no indications of support for Nvidia DLSS or Intel XeSS. This could potentially lead to discontent among Nvidia and Intel GPU users, as Bethesda hasn’t yet confirmed whether this lack of support for rival GPU vendor image reconstruction technologies is due to AMD’s sponsorship.
The dataminer further explained that supporting only FSR2 among all temporal upscale is particularly disappointing. If a game engine can accommodate one form of temporal upscaling, incorporating others should be relatively straightforward. Tools like Nvidia Streamline simplify the process of integrating image reconstruction technologies, such as DLSS.

Starfield Mechanics and World Details: Developers’ Insights
In a Q&A session on Discord, Starfield Design Directors Will Shen and Emil Pagliarulo revealed interesting features. The game incorporates a jail system, where players can be imprisoned or pay fines for lawbreaking. Resisting arrest and making an escape are also potential options.
In terms of property, Shen mentioned various cities offer housing that players can acquire. Some might need to be purchased, while others could be rewards for specific quests. Players can obtain dwellings in major cities within Starfield. Pagliarulo hinted at an accommodation obtainable through completing certain undisclosed tasks.
For those who wish to preserve the sense of discovery and stay away from Starfield leaks, selective online interactions and strategic avoidance of certain content might be the key. The non-linear nature of Starfield’s gameplay suggests that even if spoilers seep in, they might not significantly disrupt the overall experience.
For those eager to jump into Starfield at the earliest opportunity, the Premium Edition offers a chance to play from September 1, ahead of the official release date of September 6.
