One of the most interesting kind of mods for Bethesda games add survival mechanics, and Starfield just got its own with Starvival. 

The mod by adds needs mechanics including hunger, thirst, and fatigue, but that's far from all. You can also get adrenaline rushes and get addicted to various substances (on top of some addictions that were already in the game).

There is plenty of content in the mod, prompting players to be much more careful in their exploration of the game's galaxy and adding a further level of depth.

Starvival can be downloaded from NexusMods, made by lKocMoHaBTl, who is known for having created some pretty popular ones for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Fallout 4, and Fallout New Vegas.

As usual with mods that can be downloaded from Nexus, it can be installed either manually or by using the website's Vortex manager. 

Starfield is available for PC and Xbox Series X|S, on top of Game Pass, but it's worth mentioning that this mod is exclusively for the PC version, at least until Bethesda implements official mod support early next year

If you're fine playing the game with no mods until then, you can purchase a copy of Starfield for Xbox Series X|S on Amazon.

If you'd like to read more about Starfield mods, you should definitely take a look at the StarUI series, which massively improves several elements of the game's interface, which isn't exactly top-notch in its vanilla version. 

Recently, we learned that Starfield has passed 11 million players and it was also at the top of Circana's (formerly NPD's) sales charts for the month of September.

Of course, this popularity has several reasons, you can read some of them in our review, which awarded Starfield with an 8 out of 10.
