Starfield is one of the most ambitious space RPGs ever made. It is scheduled to release officially on September 6, 2023, and the developers have been transparent about the progress of the game so far. The game is already available for pre-purchase on Steam and is said to feature some of the most realistic space models ever in a videogame. It is also expected to be a graphical marvel with various complex mechanics surrounding travel, communication, and resource gathering. The developers of the game have promised an open-world experience like no other, and players are eager for its release.
The aim of Starfield is to provide an experience where the primary objective is to explore and enjoy the open world as much as possible. The developers are saying that you, as a player, will have complete exposure and freedom in the game to do as you please. You can gather resources and other materials to craft essentials that will prolong your exploration days. The game also has mechanics that facilitate fast travel, but with their own twist. This article is going to focus on the fast travel mechanic of the game and explain how it works.
Starfield: How to fast travel?
Starfield offers a space exploration experience. This means there is going to be a lot of interstellar travel. Making fast travel possible in a game of this size with no bounds to a map and almost 1000 planets to explore is a challenge that the developers of the game claim to have solved. Fast travel in this game is more about exploring faster than getting to a point in the game faster.
No Conventional Fast Travel
Since there is no defined map in Starfield, you cannot simply open your map and click on a spot to fast travel there. In order to get to far-off planets, you are actually going to have to pilot your ship there. The game will facilitate this with hyperjumps. Other than that, you are on your own for the most part. Additionally, fast travel will be available to planets you have already visited as landing spots when you are in the same system. This means you will be able to land your ship there without too much piloting, but you will still need to have visited it first.
You need a ship
One more thing to keep in mind is that you will need a ship to fast travel. Without a ship, you are limited to the same planet you are currently on. In order to get your hands on a ship, you can either buy it or steal it. You can also board enemy ships and hijack them. Once you have a ship, you can visit planets and explore them. Once a planet has been visited, it will appear as a landing spot, and you can fast-travel there from the same or a nearby system. This is the currently available information about fast travel in Starfield. We will update this guide once we get more information on this matter.
