Does Starfield have multiplayer?

Unfortunately, Starfield is not a multiplayer game and is strictly limited to single-player mode only. Bethesda don’t plan on adding a multiplayer or co-op mode to their latest open-world game right now.

Bethesda have indeed released multiplayer games in the past, such as Fallout 76 and The Elder Scrolls Online. When it comes to their single-player RPGs like Fallout 4 or Skyrim, however, they’ve never added multiplayer or co-op features.

Modders, on the other hand, could eventually make a multiplayer mod for Starfield. You can now play Morrowind, Skyrim, Fallout 3, and New Vegas in multiplayer thanks to mods. So it’s only a matter of time before someone adds multiplayer to Bethesda’s latest space-exploration RPG.
