Does Starfield have multiplayer?

Starfield is a great single player experience, but you might be wondering if there are multiplayer or co-op experiences as well.

While there is no official way to play Starfield in multiplayer, there is a chance that PC users will eventually be able to do so thanks to the efforts of the community.

Is Starfield multiplayer?

No, Starfield does not have multiplayer capabilities on either PC or Xbox consoles. It also doesn’t have any sort of cooperative play, which means you can’t party up with friends at launch to explore the vast Starfield universe together or challenge each other in PvP (player vs. player).

Todd Howard mentioned that Starfield is a single player experience during a 2020 Develop interview with our sister site which you can watch on the Develop: Brighton Conference YouTube channel, or with the insert below.

However, based on community creations for other Bethesda titles like Skyrim and Fallout 3, it’s likely that there will be a multiplayer mod, or at least an attempted multiplayer mod, that PC gamers can use to play Starfield together at some point. time of the year future.

If the Xbox version of Starfield eventually gets mod support, then it could also receive a multiplayer mod, but this is less likely than on PC, as Bethesda’s previous multiplayer mods have bypassed Xbox consoles.

Creating an unofficial multiplayer mod for a single player game with a small team is understandably a huge task, so don’t expect one to appear for quite some time after release, if a multiplayer mod is possible at all.

Starfield is far more ambitious in scope than any of Bethesda Game Studios’ previous titles, so getting it to consistently run a co-op or PvP experience might prove fruitless even for all the talented modders out there.

It’s also possible that the developer will add multiplayer support after launch, but Bethesda Game Studios hasn’t indicated that this is in the works.

The lack of an official multiplayer mode may be disappointing to some, especially those looking to team up in co-op or coming from playing multiplayer on Star Citizen, so hopefully a multiplayer mode will be available one day, even if it takes a while. . .

Until then, there will be plenty of other activities to tackle in Starfield’s massive single player campaign!
