One of many absolute strangest issues about Starfield is that area journey is usually executed by means of menus and clicking buttons. You have got a complete ass ship! You need to be capable to fly round in area and do cool issues with it! As an alternative, ship gameplay is usually reserved for fight. If you happen to attempt to fly your ship from one planet to a different, you’ll discover that it’s just about unimaginable.
Besides… it’s not.
Two Starfield gamers have found that it’s certainly doable to fly from one planet or moon to a different. It simply takes a hell of a very long time. Reddit person u/RiddleMeThis– and YouTuber/gaming persona Alanah Pearce tried flying to a different planet within the ship, and yeah it really works. Pearce uploaded a video to her YouTube channel final month displaying that it takes about seven hours to get to a different planetary floor, which you’ll try down under:
u/RiddleMeThis did the identical factor, although they did use a console command to extend the sport pace.
When you truly attain the planetary floor, you possibly can scan it and work together with it such as you would every other planet within the recreation, although you do nonetheless have to make use of the menus to land on it correctly, which is a bummer.
It’s value noting that Starfield’s area exploration side was clearly impressed by No Man’s Sky, Good day Video games’ now-excellent area exploration recreation that revolves closely round your ship and the way you navigate your environment with it. No Man’s Sky lacks within the narrative and quest division, certain, however it’s plain that its exploration side is now prime notch. Starfield nonetheless has a little bit of a strategy to go earlier than it will possibly match Good day Video games’ area effort, however hey, perhaps we’ll see it within the sequel?
Starfield is now obtainable on consoles and PC.
