This is great news, as players have been eagerly waiting for these improvements to make their interstellar journey smoother and more visually stunning. 👾

The January 17 update, unfortunately, will only be available for PC players who have opted into Steam Beta. But don’t worry, Xbox players and PC players on Game Pass won’t be left behind for long. Bethesda has stated that they will gain access to the update’s features in about two weeks. So keep your engines running and your space suits ready, because the best is yet to come! 🚀
