Is Starfield single-player or multiplayer?

Most of Bethesda’s games offer deep, narratively-driven single-player experiences and Starfield is no different. While you will meet a countless number of characters during your time exploring the galaxy, these will be NPCs and not other gamers. While this means you can play the game as it suits your playstyle and preferences, it does mean you won’t be able to play this game with your friends. 

Will Starfield have achievements?

The fact that this game is releasing after a rather long delay is one achievement! But in terms of achievements that you will earn while you are playing the game, they will be listed here when they finally become available. 

Will Starfield have any DLC?

Yes! Bethesda have a long history of providing DLC for their games so you can expect plenty of extra content over the coming months and years.

The first piece of DLC to be announced is a story expansion: Starfield Shattered Space. We don’t have a release date for this yet but if you purchase the Constellation Edition of Starfield, you will get access to that DLC when it is released. 

Players who pre-order the Premium or Constellation Edition will also be treated to a Constellation Skin Pack, Soundtrack, Digital Art Book, and other digital bonuses.

How long is Starfield?

According to the game’s producer Todd Howard, the main campaign will take you between 30-40 hours to complete. But as the game will be packed with a lot of side content and numerous places to explore, the game will likely take you up to 100+ hours if you want to experience everything it has to offer.
