Years of anticipation. Thousands of words of speculation. Hours upon hours of hard work from Bethesda. Starfield has finally unveiled itself to the world, and millions cannot wait to play it. Whilst you are waiting for your copy to arrive, or for your digital version to finish downloading, let us talk to you through the journey you are about to embark on.
Welcome to Constellation
Available right now on Xbox Series X|S and PC (if you own the Premium Edition, otherwise you’ll have to wait until the 6th September!), Starfield starts you off as a lowly miner (known as a ‘duster’) on a similarly ho-hum planet. But not before long you are whisked away to the modern city of New Atlantis on your very own spaceship, and welcomed to Constellation.
This is a 24th century explorer’s guild of sorts. Embroiled in a mystery concerning Artifacts and an ongoing turf war between two intergalactic forces. You just happen to be everywhere, doing everything, at once!
After customising your character visually and with regards to starting skills and traits, you can choose to explore over 1000 planets. Each has their own flora, fauna and resources to mine – the latter of which will be used to upgrade your own unique spaceship. Your ship, of course, is also intricately customisable, and space combat will involve micro-managing between offensive and defensive capabilities.
Adventure to any point in the universe, to any planet you choose, and you’ll be met with endless activities and side quests to pursue.
Do you help out the common-man in the city of Neon. Or side with the conglomerates for your own financial gain? Do you co-operate with other explorers by trading. Would you prefer to dock onto their ship and invade, pillaging like any pirate would?
Whilst the main story is there, begging for completion, we are sure that most will invest hours into simply exploring.
