Bethesda Customer Service Is Still Responding To Individual Negative Starfield Steam Reviews


There are a lot of negative reviews floating around on Steam

Over two months after the RPG’s initial release, Bethesda is still responding to individual negative Starfield reviews on Steam. A few months after its release, Starfield received a ‘Mixed’ overall user review rating on Steam, with some players dubbing it “Bethesda’s most mediocre game to date.” Bethesda is now taking matters into its own hands and responding to some of the negative reviews.

You get to decide who lives and who dies at crucial points of the story, as well as how to go about meeting any given objective, The Bethesda community team responds to the review.
