Starfield on Xbox Series S

There's been a lot of discussion about the space RPG release Starfield being locked at 30FPS on Xbox consoles, but how is it specifically on the Series S? While we've already seen the game in action on Series X, Bethesda game director Todd Howard has mentioned how it's a "great" looking experience on the lower-end model.

During an industry panel event recently, Todd explained that he owns both an X and S, stating that most of his playtime in Starfield so far has been on the Series S - mostly because his kids are always on the Series X.

Here's what he had to say (via VGC):

“I got an X and S when they came out. I put the X in the basement with the big 4K TV. My kids don’t let [me play it]… they’re always on it. So the S is upstairs… and [the game] looks great.”

As confirmed earlier this week, Starfield will display at 4K on Xbox Series X and 1440p on Xbox Series S with both versions locked at 30FPS. Howard has previously said the team doesn't want to "sacrifice" any of the game's "huge, open world" fidelity when it comes to frame rate.

If you do plan to play Starfield on a Series S, you might even want to consider upgrading to the new Carbon Black, 1TB model, as a Microsoft Store listing has revealed the game could require up to 125GB of space. This system was announced during Xbox's latest Games Showcase and will arrive on 1st September 2023 for $349 / £299.
