Todd Howard of Bethesda confirmed that Starfield will have DLCs, expansions and mods after the launch, continuing with the now historical tradition seen also for other games of the company and therefore offering new content even at a distance from the original game release.
In an interview following Starfield’s presentation at the Xbox & Bethesda Showcase 2022, Todd Howard explained that the extremely large size of the game world will easily allow for more content to be introduced after the final version is released.
On the other hand, it is a practice that Bethesda has carried out with great commercial success in previous games as well.
“We understand that people tend to play our games for very, very long periods of time,” Howard explained. Skyrim and this obviously does not happen for 10 consecutive years, but it happens that they come back several times and after various pauses, perhaps to discover some additional contents “.
This obviously leads to seeing the same thing for Starfield as well: “Of course we will create extra content for this game and we also love our modder community. We really think this game could be something of a dream for our modding community, because there are so many things that can be done. “
Considering that Starfield will include more than 1000 planets, as reported by Bethesda, it is obvious to expect new content placed around the explorable universe. We also recently learned that flight from space to the surface of planets will not be totally free.
