With the highly anticipated release of Starfield you might be asking whether you’ll be able to play this massive new game from Bethesda on the Asus ROG Ally? Set for release in September, there is still much we don’t know about the game and its features.

While the full details of performance are not yet available, we do know that Starfield will have demanding system requirements. Todd Howard, the game’s director, confirmed that the performance on Xbox Series X and S will be capped at 30FPS. As a result, it is possible that the game’s performance on the ROG Ally may also be limited, although specifics have yet to be disclosed. We’re fairly sure playing Starfield on the ROG Ally should be feasible, although the framerate may vary.

The GPUs required to run Starfield are expected to be more powerful than the AMD Ryzen APU found in the ROG Ally. However, you can explore options to enhance frame rates through features like FSR (FidelityFX Super Resolution) and boost modes. It is important to note that the game’s compatibility with Valve’s Steam Deck has also not been confirmed at this time.

As more information becomes available, stay tuned for official announcements to gain a clearer understanding of Starfield’s compatibility and performance on the ROG Ally.

How to play Starfield on the Asus ROG Ally

Similar to most games, Starfield will be available on Steam and Xbox Game Pass, allowing you to install it on the Asus ROG Ally just like any other game. You can simply run the installation process as you would on any Windows device.

Once the game is released, you can expect the installation process to be straightforward:

  1. Make sure you have either Steam or Xbox Game Pass installed and ready on your device.
  2. Find Starfield in the respective platform and have it ready for installation, whether it’s through preordering or preinstalling.
  3. Install the game on your ROG Ally following the usual steps for installing a game on your chosen platform.
  4. Wait for the game to finish installing, and you’ll be ready to embark on your Starfield adventure.

You’re going to want to make sure that you have sufficient storage space to accommodate the game. While the built-in SSD should be enough to play the game, upgrading it might be a good option for improved performance. Graphics might pose a more demanding task, and using the ROG XG mobile addition could be beneficial for a quality gaming experience.

If you prefer playing with a keyboard and mouse, it may be more convenient to play Starfield while docked. However, since the game is also coming to consoles, it will naturally support controllers, making it easy to play either on the go or at home.
