Starfield free update adds new bounty hunting quest expansion, available today

Starfield free update adds new bounty hunting quest expansion, available today

Time to collect those intergalactic bounties!

If you enjoyed taking on bounties for some intergalactic riches in Starfield then we’ve got some good news for you, because new bounty-hunting missions are now available.

That being said, we do have some bad news to report. The free bounty-hunting missions now available in Starfield are not of the chocolate bar variety, but are instead of course related to the popular Bethesda sci-fi RPG.

Check out the Starfield: Shattered Space trailer below!

Last night during the Xbox Games Showcase, Bethesda finally revealed the first gameplay trailer for the highly anticipated Starfield expansion Shattered Space and it did not disappoint. Judging by the gameplay trailer, it’s about to get very cosmically weird for gamers who will be picking up the expansion.

"Shattered Space is a new story expansion for Starfield, Bethesda Game Studios' epic role-playing game and first new universe in more than 25 years. A mysterious power stirs in the city of Dazra on House Va'Ruun's hidden homeworld. Investigate a frightening cosmic threat, explore a new planet, and find unique weapons, spacesuits, and gear in this all-new adventure," reads the description of the expansion.

However, alongside the Shattered Space gameplay trailer, Bethesda also announced that as of right now, a free content update for Starfield is available to download. The highlights of the free content update are the arrival of mod support with the Creation Club and new missions, such as the topic of today’s discussion, the Trackers Alliance.

“New missions have been added to Starfield as part of this update. Trackers Alliance establishes the first of several missions enabling you to live your best bounty-hunting life,” reads the description. “The first mission, The Starjacker, will have you in contact with a mysterious Tracker located in settlements throughout the Settled Systems. From there, let the hunts begin!”

“The second Trackers Alliance mission, The Vulture is available within the new Creations menu. And what bounty hunter is without their trusted methods to get the job done?”

What’s more, the free content update also introduces improvements to the bounty hunter scanning system. According to the website post, the improved system “enables you to seek and destroy (or peacefully resolve...?) those targets with bounties on their heads. If you still want more, you can also check out the Elite Trackers Alliance mission board.”

Hopefully, the long-awaited expansion will lure back those fans who were initially disappointed during the launch of Starfield last year. Starfield: Shattered Space will launch later this year on PC and Xbox Series X/S.
