It seems that the initial release or pre-purchase of Starfield by Bethesda didn’t go smoothly due to some in-game bugs and errors. Though the space-themed action adventure RPG has won many hearts with its overall storyline and graphical surprises, developers need more time and effort to fix common issues. As the game is in Early Access, we’re expecting bugs and errors until multiple patch fixes arrive. Meanwhile, the Starfield Eye of the Storm Bug is affecting plenty of players.
This particular bug appears whenever players are asked to complete a task by rerouting the ship’s power by flipping two power switches during the Eye of the Storm quest. It eventually occurs during the players get stuck with the transfer process after completing the mission. So, players won’t be able to progress further in the gameplay and the quest becomes unresponsive or even fails to update. To be precise, the ‘Eye of the Storm’ quest allows players to support the United Colonies or the Crimson Fleet in this mission.
Not only this but also the ‘Eye of the Storm’ quest can also cause several other issues in Starfield which prevent players from completing the quest, audio cuts, in-game lags, crashes, and more. Additionally, the players can also get stuck in the transfer process while activating the vault door. All in all, this is a major bug in Starfield and should be fixed by the developers as soon as possible.
