Starfield Achieves 13 Million Players; Shattered Space Expansion, Regular Updates & More in the Works

Bethesda has announced that their adventure RPG Starfield has achieved 13 million players since September, further solidifying it as the largest launch in their history.

Additionally, several collective player statistics were shared, including the total number of days played, visited planets, hours building ships, and much more. For the future of Starfield, Bethesda has announced that they are ” targeting updates roughly every six weeks starting in February. These updates will include everything from quality-of-life improvements to content and feature updates. Join our Steam Beta branch to be the first to try these updates as they begin rolling out.”

They’ll also be adding new ways to travel and the capability to “access city maps while exploring the major cities.” Moreover, there will be new ship customization options, a more challenging gameplay difficulty, official mod support, and the eventual launch of Shattered Space, their first major expansion. Players can anticipate new story content, locations, and gear.

Starfield takes place in the 2300s, following a Colony War between the United Colonies and the Freestar Collective. Players will make their own characters who are part of the space explorer organization Constellation and navigate the uneasy peace that has come as a result of the bloody Colony War. Starfield has also been available on Xbox Game Pass since launch day.

The game is highly reminiscent of previous Bethesda releases, having players ultimately craft a narrative of their own making while following story threads that culminate into something bigger. Starfield boasts a particularly robust scale of exploration to help achieve this immersive feat, alongside an inventive new game plus system that will assuredly keep players around for years upon years.
