Starfield Cracks Down on Stealing Bug in New Update

Starfield update to version 1.7.33 is now available on PC and XSX/S. The patch fixes a bug that facilitates thievery and a handful of other glitches.

Bethesda modestly begins patching its new game. Starfield has received its second post-release patch with just ten fixes. At least that's what the changelog for update 1.7.33 contains, available on the game's official website and Steam.

It should be noted that performance and stability fixes for forced closing of the game have been summarized under a single point. The exception is a glitch related to the hand scanner, which could reduce the game's performance.

The patch will certainly not please those who enjoy easy acquisition of equipment at the expense of NPCs. The list included a point concerning a bug allowing for stealing equipment of vendors without spending virtual funds. In addition, players will no longer be surprised when items (in this case, it is about their dematerialization after being put on dummies and weapon holders, among others) or characters suddenly disappear from their "posts".

We've posted the full list of changes below. Let's hope that the next update will be much bigger, preferably on the scale of the large patches for Baldur's Gate 3.

Don't ask about the graphics – after a few hours of exposition, he can be delighted with pixelated characters from games that remember the days of the Game Boy age (if not older).
