We know that there are hundreds of planets to explore, and we know that many are procedurally generated. What does that mean for gameplay? For those players who come to Starfield for the wonder of search and discovery, what is there to be found?
Different materials will likely be found only on certain planets or in certain environments, and you’ll have to keep searching to find exactly what you need.
Another exciting discovery could be life on other planets! And not just the unique flora and fauna the gameplay reveal lets us get a quick glimpse of. Bethesda has been very coy so far on the question of whether or not there is any other intelligent life in Starfield beyond humanity. We see a variety of human faces, but not so much as a hint of an alien one.
Something as dramatic as making first contact might be part of the main story quest, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t something out there for players to find. Hidden ruins of alien civilizations or clues to a thriving but reclusive culture could provide the player with additional knowledge and give them an advantage in the main story or against other factions. Perhaps you can discover alien technology which can be reverse engineered through research and thus give your outposts and/or ships a more powerful advantage.
