Starfield save crashing? Try this fix.

So my last few Starfield saves are crashing continually a few minutes after loading in. I’m playing on PC but this might work for Xbox also.

If you’re having the same issue, try these steps:

  • Do not delete your current ‘main’ save game
  • Load up a previous/old save if you have one, make sure it’s stable and not crashing
  • While playing that old save, go to your menu and ‘Save’ manually. Creating a new save (we won’t be using this but it’s important to do this)
  • Now, Load back to your ‘main’ save file
  • You should be crash-free for a while at least

Repeat this process if the save starts crashing again. Other users online have suggested turning off ‘Auto-save’.

Let me know in the comments if this worked for you.

It doesn’t seem like anyone has commented….I’m surprised.
Anyways, I have used this trick many times and it works (on xbox series x) – for a while at least. Thank you for posting this, I really appreciate it.
