Starfield has a hidden planet that's completely blowing Halo fans away

Starfield has a hidden planet that's completely blowing Halo fans away

You can visit the Halo Reach planet in Starfield, apparently.

Starfield is Bethesda’s latest big hit as Xbox fans continue to be immersed in the galaxy that the sci-fi RPG has to offer.

Whether it's the largest city that Bethesda has ever created or the 1000 planets to be discovered within its 100 star systems, it’s no wonder that Starfield is said to be a thousand times bigger than The Elder Scrolls VI: Skyrim.

There’s no question that Starfield is shaping up to be one of the best Xbox console exclusives in recent years, perhaps one day it could be considered alongside some of the green brands' most popular IPs such as Gears of War, Forza Motorsport and Halo. Only time will tell.

That being said, if you’re a fan of Halo, then fellow Starfield explorers, you’re in for a treat, because it seems that Reach aka Epsilon Eridani II, the planet from 2010’s Halo: Reach is apparently in Starfield and is blowing fans away.

“You can actually visit the planet Reach from the Halo series in this game,” announced killingjoke96 on a Reddit thread. “In the Halo lore, the planet Reach is the second planet from the sun in the Eridani system. If you go to that system in Starfield and visit Eridani II, you will find a lush breathable planet with many biomes similar to how Reach was portrayed in the game,” they continued. “Have fun with your outposts.”

“When I found the Eridani system I quickly set up my first outpost on Eridani II. Thought this was so cool,” replied skulledredditor. “No way it's a coincidence. They've been working on this game for years and the team is 90% made up of sci-fi gamer nerds,” exclaimed Ezzypezra. “I love all of the hidden homages they’ve put in, and makes you wonder how much more there is to discover. From Kevin’s chilli to Halo Reach,” adds dnuohxof-1.

In related news, it was recently revealed that Starfield nearly featured Fallout’s version of Earth and a grotesque alien has been discovered that you would not want to take home to meet your family.

Starfield is out now on PC and Xbox Series X|S. It is also available to Xbox Game Pass subscribers at no extra cost.
