Starfield lightsabers

A fresh mod has been launched for the space RPG Starfield, enabling players to utilize lightsabers designed after the renowned weapons from Star Wars. The Immersive Sabers mod offers three lightsabers – Combatech Polaris, Old Earth Photonsaber, and Arboron Novabeam Saber – each with a special color, sound, and effect.

You can also modify the colors of lightsaber beams and improve these at workbenches. The mod also includes a fresh perk, Saber Training, which helps players better deflect incoming attacks with their lightsabers.

As per Starfield’s setting, the lightsabers can be discovered in the wild or taken from those you defeat. This is similar to how other weapons are obtained within the game’s universe. But amusingly enough, for world-building purposes – lightsabers have been thought up to be made by companies inside Starfield like Laredo Firearms., Allied Armaments, and Kore Kinetics.

The Immersive Sabers mod, which adds lightsabers to the Starfield game, was released with the opening of the Creation Club mod platform this week. This is among the first group of third-party Creation Club mods for Starfield. The mod is free for PC players (for Xbox, you can find it here), but those who play on a console will require 1,000 Creation Club credits (equivalent to approximately $10) to access these lightsabers.

After Starfield was first released at the end of 2023, it quickly became a top choice for modders. They utilized third-party tools to incorporate various items into the game, such as fresh alien types and customized player houses.

The Creation Club from Bethesda provides these modders with a formal method of sharing their work and simultaneously receiving part of the earnings from it.

But one area of Starfield mods isn’t so sunny. Many players are unhappy because the end of the game’s main mission line, Trackers Alliance questline, can only be accessed by paying money. A few even suggest that this task was purposely made to be sold as paid DLC.

In another place, Starfield players have been having fun with the game’s recent patch. It added fresh things like city maps, new ship interiors, and a harder difficulty setting that makes enemies even stronger. The patch has prepared for Starfield’s first big addition, Shattered Space—it should come out at some point this year.

Starfield is available now on PC and Xbox Series X/S.
