by Starfield anticipation continues to grow as we approach the start of 2023. Bethesda Game Studios’ first new IP in 25 years, star field is supposed to look like Skyrim in space, but its reported realism will also serve as an existential look at what it means for humanity to live among the stars. Bethesda Game Studios director and executive producer Todd Howard enthusiastically framed star field as containing release moments – where players will be confronted with the wonder of the game and the universe.
Skyrim and Fallout 4 feel like lived games where players can have a sense of immersion through content that expands on the main stories, themes, and interactions. This can be attributed to Bethesda’s Creation Club, where Bethesda and community creators have crafted additional content compatible with major games and their respective DLCs. This club was created long after both games were released, but in the case of star fieldit might be beneficial for Bethesda to release the Creation Club sooner.
Bethesda Creation Club
Launched in 2017, Creation Club offers new content for Fallout 4 and Skyrim Special Edition. This content includes gameplay, abilities, weapons, world, characters, and creatures. Bethesda and other development partners and community creators (modders) have worked together to develop additional content. Club content was found in the game’s digital marketplaces in both titles, with credits used to purchase it – a form of microtransactions.
Creation Club allows modders to apply their app to share their mod work, from creating fun avatars to entirely new gameplay elements and worlds. This allows Bethesda-approved content to be developed for its games, paid for by the company, but bringing new insights from its fan base. It’s a way to show gamers that Studio executives care about their fan base.

Howard revealed that players can travel to hundreds of star systems and visit over 1,000 planets.
Howard went on to explain that while there are many Goldilock planets – planets in a habitable zone – there are other types to explore. He also mentioned that many of these planets in star field would contain the resources players need to mine, mine, and use for crafting and trading. With countless worlds available to many players, there’s no way to guarantee that every planet has been handcrafted with assets and content.
Early Access to Creation Club
While Creation Club for Fallout 4 and Skyrim came after these games were released, it might be beneficial for Creation Club to provide early access before by Starfield Release. With so many potentially empty planets, there is an ocean of opportunity for community creators and outside development teams. As Howard continually references star field as a player game, the ability for players and creators to have a say in additional content and features might make sense.
star field anticipation continues to grow at the start of 2023 inches closer. While there are still many details unknown to players, what is known continues to generate interest and questions. Bethesda Game Studios’ work with its Creation Club to Fallout 4 and Skyrim Special Edition opened the door for community creators to develop additional content, worlds, story, and gameplay features for these games.
