Want to know more about the Starfield planets? In the Xbox and Bethesda showcase, it was revealed that Starfield would contain “over 1,000 planets” situated in over 100 different star systems. That’s a lot of planets, but those numbers aren’t just for show. Bethesda also revealed that players can land and explore each and every one of them.

From “baron, but resource heavy ice balls” like Chawla to “Goldilocks planets with life” like Gagarin both based in Alpha Centauri, each of the Starfield planets comes with its own list of features – from type, to gravity, to temperature, to fauna and flora, to water content, as well as the ability to survey the planet to discover more.

We currently only know about a handful of these Starfield systems and the planets contained within them, but what we can reveal is everything we know so far about them from which Starfield factions call these planets their homes to which planet has shown off Starfield’s outpost system, plus a few more thrown in.

We’ll have to wait a little longer to uncover more about these planets, but thankfully, everything we do know so far about what to expect from Starfield can be found in our Starfield release date guide. For now, let’s take a look at what we do know.

Here’s all the Starfield planet systems we know about so far:

  • Alpha Centauri
  • Cheyenne
  • Jaffa
  • Narion
  • Porrima
  • Sol
  • Volii

Starfield planets: the alpha centauri system

Alpha Centauri

This star system is the one we know the most about and seemingly the main hub of at least one of Starfield’s largest factions, United Colonies. Thanks to the extended gameplay trailer, we know that Alpha Centauri is home to three planets, one with two moons and a gas giant with its own set of moons.

The main planet, Jemison, is also where one of the main Starfield cities, New Atlantis, is found.

Here are all the known Starfield planets in the Alpha Centauri system:

  • Jemison (home to New Atlantis)
  • Gagarin
  • Olivas
  • Chawla

Narion

Another system we know a little something about is Narion. Shown briefly during Bethesda’s gameplay trailer, Vectera, the moon of Narion, is used to demonstrate the outpost system of Starfield. Outposts can be built, which act as a “home away from home” used for survival and resource generation. You can also hire characters you meet along the way to work on your outpost, at a location of your choosing, to keep it up and running.

The known planets in Narion are:

  • Vectera

Other systems

As far as the other systems mentioned above; Cheyenne, Jaffa, Porrima, Sol, and Volii, these can only been seen as part of the galactic map of Starfield and have yet to be explored further.

It has been rumoured that the Sol system refers to the Solar System and thus could also contain planets such as Earth itself and the red planet, Mars. Users on Reddit have speculated that towards the end of the gameplay trailer, an astronaut is seen walking by the buried Opportunity rover on Mars.

We also know of the following Starfield planets:

  • Kreet (moon of Anselon): home to an “abandoned research facility” as well as eight resources to survey and two flora. Players were given a brief glimpse at Kreet during the gameplay reveal where you’ll come across pirates of the Starfield faction, Crimson Fleet.
  • Aquatic planet with no known name: home to Starfield faction, XenoFresh Corporation, and the pleasure city of Neon.
  • Dry “western” planet with no known name: home to another large faction in the game, Freestar Collective, this planet is home to the walled city of Akila, but the name of the planet is currently unknown.

That’s everything we know so far about the Starfield planets, but we’ll be sure to keep this guide updated when we hear more.

For now, there’s plenty more Starfield content to explore from Starfield skills explained to all the Starfield weapons, Starfield religions, and Starfield backgrounds.
