There’s a lot of excitement around Bethesda’s upcoming space RPG, Starfield. Why? Well, this is the studio’s first new IP in over twenty-five years, and the other reason is, of course, the “Skyrim in space” thing. Slated for a September 6, 2023, official release for both Windows and Xbox Series X/S, the game is right now available to a select few who purchased the Premium Edition. From the early access player reception, Starfield seems to be just like what was said about it being “Skyrim in space”. Players can fly their ship from one planet to another while also building outposts and exploring the flora and fauna, among many other things. However, it seems like for some players, doing all this in the game is hard due to the horrendous camera shake.
For the uninitiated, camera shake is a feature in games, especially in FPS shooters, where the camera will frequently move from side to side when the player character is walking or running. It is, for all intents and purposes, meant to make the game feel “realistic”. But for many, it just makes them feel nauseous. This is especially the case for players who are prone to motion sickness. That’s why games generally include an option to disable camera shake in the settings. So, what about Starfield? How do you disable the camera shake in Starfield? Let’s find out!
Starfield: How to disable Camera Shake
Be ready for disappointment because Starfield doesn’t offer any options that let you disable the in-game camera shake. A game of this caliber without basic accessibility settings is, frankly, unacceptable. Well, since the option is not available in-game, there is currently nothing to be done but wait. But wait for what? Well, due to fan requests, it is possible that Bethesda will eventually release an update featuring a camera shake toggle in the game. However, what’s more likely to happen is the release of a mod that deals with this negligence from Bethesda’s side.
At this point, players can only hope for a mod that will allow them to disable camera shake in the game. But this alternative is only for PC players. Xbox users are entirely at the mercy of Bethesda for the foreseeable future. As of writing this guide, there’s no mod tailor-made specifically to deal with the camera shake issue in Starfield. But remember that the game is just in its second day of early access release, with the full release still a few days away. We are confident that sooner or later, a camera shake-specific mod will pop up.
Meanwhile, you should consider playing the game in the third-person perspective mode to get rid of the jarring camera shake effect that the FPP mode features. Although TPP mode doesn’t negate camera shake completely, it is still more manageable than playing in FPP.
