Starfield character creation is Bethesda’s deepest yet

Bethesda has shown off the first Starfield character creation mechanics and the game is looking like an evolution of what the studio has done before

Starfield Character Creation Depth: A character can be seen in a ship hull

Starfield gameplay was truly the highlight of the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase in 2022 and Todd Howard showed off the game’s character creation. And, from what we can see it appears to be Bethesda’s deepest yet.

The little segment which was showcased shows a biometric ID, body options, face options, your character background, and traits for the character you create. Alongside the broad details, you can customise your body look, skin tone, hairstyles, eyes, facial features, and even how you walk.

Character backgrounds act as classes in Starfield and give you three starting skills at the beginning of the game which can provide passive and active buffs. When crafting your character you can even give them optional traits which come with disadvantages and advantages such as Introvert and Empath. As your character develops, skills cover combat, social, science, and more and you can level them up by using the skills and unlock new perks for them.
