Bethesda have revealed quite a bit about the character creation system they’ve used for Starfield. You can customize your character’s face and body, but you also get to pick their background and traits.

This is pretty accurate to how Bethesda described their character progression system in Starfield. They might change things around when the game launches, but the Starfield build planner is expected to receive regular updates.

Apart from Starfield, Nukes & Dragons have made build planners and calculators for many Bethesda games like Fallout 4 and Skyrim, along with other RPGs like Cyberpunk 2077 and The Outer Worlds. So you can count on their expertise when you create a build for Bethesda’s upcoming space-themed RPG.
