Starfield, the highly anticipated next-generation role-playing game from Bethesda Game Studios, marks the dawn of a new universe after more than 25 years. Renowned for their creations like The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Fallout 4, the award-winning developers invite you to forge your own path amidst the celestial expanse. Embark on an extraordinary journey to unravel humanity’s greatest enigma, with unparalleled freedom and the ability to shape your character as you see fit.
Bethesda has confirmed that the game will offer an awe-inspiring array of over 1,000 planets for players to explore. While not every planet will feature life-altering quests, each celestial body holds its own allure, even if it’s just a barren landscape dotted with valuable resources.
The planets of Starfield promise to be a visual feast, adorned with alien flora and fauna. The lighting on each planet will be influenced by the type of star in its system and the unique atmosphere enveloping it. As players approach a planet, the game will dynamically generate its terrain, seamlessly stitching together a cohesive world. In addition, the game will populate these planets with captivating locations to discover, intriguing creatures to encounter, and more, ensuring a fresh and personalized experience for every player.
Upon landing on a planet, players will have the freedom to construct their very own outpost, serving as a customizable home base amidst the cosmos. These outposts can be erected anywhere on a given planet, allowing players to design their ideal sanctuary among the stars. Building mechanics have received an upgrade, enabling players to craft their outposts using a top-down isometric view for precise placement and adjustment, as well as a first-person perspective for meticulous detailing.
Once established, players can assign crew members and companions to work at their outposts, employ Extractors to gather valuable resources, establish cargo transportation systems between outposts, and set up crafting and research stations. The possibilities are boundless as you shape your outpost into a thriving hub of productivity and advancement.
But that’s not all—Starfield grants you the opportunity to take to the stars aboard your very own customizable ship. Whether acquired through purchase or seized from other daring spacers, your vessel will become a reflection of your identity. Modify it to your heart’s content, making it a true extension of your adventurous spirit.

By pre-ordering any edition of the game, you will receive the Old Mars Skin Pack, which includes coveted in-game items such as the Laser Cutter, Deep Mining Helmet, and Deep Mining Pack.
