The Best Starfield Mods in 2023

Cleaner UI, DLSS and more. Here's a look at the best Starfield mods to augment your playthrough.

Starfield's sandbox space exploration has surpassed everyone's expectations, and excluding a few peccadilloes, it's probably one of the best games of the year, challenging the likes of Zelda: Breath of The Wild and Baldur's Gate 3. The game offers a wealth of missions as well as spacefaring options,  with a variety of spaceships that let you live out your greatest sci-fi fantasies.

But there's always something to be improved, and the modding community has already made some strides in adding a few extra polishes to Bethesda's latest open-world RPG. Here's all of the best mods for Starfield, what they do and how to get them.

Field of View Slider

On the top of our best Starfield mods list is the “In-Game FOV Changer” by keanuWheeze. This mod lets you change the extent of how much of the game you're viewing. The change is permanent, meaning the the settings will apply wherever you go. The slider was last updated at the start of September, and works perfectly to give you control over the game's immersion. Better visuals also help you die less in the game, I hear.

If you want to take a break from all the star wars, Starfield's base-building mechanics let you establish outposts across the fringes of the known galaxy. These additional tech trees can be loads of fun, and add even more hours to the game's already lengthy playtime.

Added DLSS and XeSS

“Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) and Xe Super Sampling (XeSS)” both improve the look of your game by focusing on the finer details. These upgrades essentially use AI to enhance the graphics of the game further, making Starfield look and feel more realistic than it already is. Both features are found in nearly all modern Nvidia and Intel GPU's respectively.
