Starfield adds Creation Kit, allowing players to create entire planets

Bethesda is bringing the goods with this update

Starfield is getting a huge update and you’re not going to want to miss it. Finally, Bethesda has handed over the keys and given the community the Creation Kit.

What this means is that players and creators can begin to design all-new content for the sci-fi RPG - new missions, new NPCs, and even whole entire planets.

Starfield's first DLC expansion will emerge later this year with Shattered Space.

So, Starfield’s update 1.12.30 is the big one we’ve all been waiting for. The Creation Kit is a major tool for mod creation and it will bring with it so many new gameplay opportunities that it’s silly.

Imagine getting a whole planet filled with new and interesting aliens, or ships designed from scratch by passionate members of the community. And these will be available very soon.

What’s ever better is that many of these mods will be handpicked by Bethesda and showcased within the game itself allowing you to buy them using Creation Credits, a new form of currency for Starfield.

This concept isn’t new to Bethesda titles and it has been seen in both Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Fallout 4.

Also joining the Creation Kit is a bunch of new missions called Trackers Alliance Missions which will allow you to live your life as a bounty hunter, which is exactly what I wanted from the base game.

There will even be bounty hunting mission boards found throughout the galaxy so you’ll always have something to hunt.

This, of course, all takes us up to Shattered Space, the first DLC expansion for the game, due to launch later this year.

It has taken a while but Starfield is starting to feel like a proper Bethesda game with all the features many of us have wanted since launch day.

Here’s hoping to a bright future with plenty of brilliant mods for all to play and experience.
