Starfield Earth

Earth, the birthplace of humanity, occupies an unusual place in Starfield. Humanity fled the Earth and scattered across the stars, yet Earth’s fate remains entirely a mystery.

Last updated We’ve updated this page with the latest information.

Bethesda have been very tight-lipped ahead of Starfield’s release regarding Earth and what role it has to play in the Starfield campaign. The Earth has been seen in the background of the Starfield gameplay trailer, and so it definitely exists in the Sol system – aka The Old Neighborhood. However, whether the Earth still supports life or can be visited remains to be seen.

Earth trivia:

Earth was first spotted during the Starfield gameplay trailer in June 2022.

Earth was mentioned during the Constellation Questions: Talking Starfield Quests with Will Shen video, and confirmed that “very early on in the main quest” you will encounter “the question of what happened to the Earth.”

Tim has sunk at least a thousand hours into Bethesda games over the years, and is always looking for the next mod to extend that playtime further. So, if he’s not busy updating our Starfield weapons database, he’s eagerly anticipating Starfield mods and DLC, or planning his dream outpost.
