Is Starfield Multiplayer?

The first new intellectual property developed by Bethesda Game Studios in 25 years, Starfield is a hotly anticipated AAA, action role playing game which takes place across the vastness of space. Despite the label as an RPG there are lot of Bethesda fans and excited gamers asking the question: Is Starfield Multiplayer?

Is Starfield Multiplayer?

The short and simple answer to this question is NO.

Bethesda as a developer is mostly known for their robust, sweepingly large single player RPG series such as Fallout and the Elder Scrolls. The vast majority of these games are single player, focusing on character creation, main story and side quests, combat and especially exploration. There are a few exceptions out there – Fallout 76 was Bethesda’s first foray into the multiplayer genre and the Elder Scrolls Online (developed by Zenimax Studios rather than Bethesda) is a popular and vast MMO world about to celebrate its ninth anniversary in early 2023.

 

So while Bethesda fans might be eager to explore the galaxy with friends, most of them probably won’t be too surprised that Starfield will not support multiplayer gameplay. Todd Howard and the developers at Bethesda are certainly at the top of their game when working on massive single player RPGs and Starfield will have a vast array of other engaging systems and a wild amount of exploration to do which are sure to keep players coming back to the world for many years to come.
