How Many Planets are There in Starfield? Answered

In 2022 during the Xbox and Bethesda Showcase, Game Director Todd Howard confirmed there will be over 1,000 explorable planets in Starfield. The caveat is that not all of those planets will have life. Roughly 10%, or 100 planets, will contain unique flora and fauna for you to discover and interact with. Planets are procedurally generated, with some being made up of a single biome type, while others may have multiple biomes.

One hundred planets is a whole lot to explore, especially when adding populated moons and space stations to the mix. Not only that, but any discoveries you make will pay you in cold, hard credits. If you’re worried about the game having enough content, there’s certainly plenty of space surveying to do.
