If you’re looking for Star Wars references in Starfield, you’re going to have to pay attention to the details. Bethesda sprinkled some of them in while making one of the best RPG games out there, but they’re not going to be staring you right in the face when you touch down on one of the thousand Starfield planets you can explore. At least, it doesn’t look like that’s the case at the moment. So, here’s some of the best Starfield Star Wars easter eggs you may have missed. The community is only really scratching the surface, too, so expect even more than these to be hidden among the stars.
One Star Wars easter egg Starfield players have spotted in-game is a little obscure – which arguably makes it an even better easter egg.
As you can see below, this Robotic Resonance LLC poster advertises something called ‘Blue Harvest’ with an image of an automated robot dusting some crops. This is a reference to the 1982 working title of Star Wars Episode VI Return of the Jedi – which is ‘Blue Harvest’.
Players exploring some of the Starfield cities are also spotting references to legendary Star Wars (and Indiana Jones, Jaws, and Jurassic Park) composer John Williams. This poster for the Sol Symphony Orchestra explains that an upcoming show from the musical outfit will feature the talents of conductor William Johns.
It’s a simple switch of John Williams’ name, but effective enough that it might go unnoticed at a glance.
Also, some of the best Starfield backgrounds – which are an important part of putting together some of the best Starfield character builds – are references to Star Wars. The Bounty Hunter background is an obvious reference to the skills we see Boba Fett and Din Djarin display in their respective appearances. Similarly, the Space Scoundrel background is a clear reference to characters like Han Solo, Lando Calrissian, and Doctor Chelli Lona Aphra. These also offer up some of the best Starfield skills when you start, so they’re worth considering whether you like Star Wars or not.
Of course, that’s only the start – we’re expecting to see a lot more appear online once the full Starfield release date arrives and more players are hands-on with Bethesda’s behemoth.
If you want to actively bring A Galaxy Far, Far Away to Starfield, you can check out some of the epic Star Wars ships players have been building using the huge selection of Starfield ship customization options available. One player has also made Star Wars Jedi Survivor’s Cal Kestis in Starfield. The Starfield character creation suite is detailed, and Bethesda added ponchos. It was inevitable, really.
