What sort of companions can we meet in Starfield?
Companions are likely to be an important part of gameplay in Starfield. Within the vastness of space, you’re going to need all the help you can get to keep your outposts functional and to help crew your starships.
The first new intellectual property developed by Bethesda Game Studios in 25 years, Starfield is a hotly anticipated AAA single player, action role playing game which takes place across the vastness of space. From environments to game mechanics, crafting and space flight, Starfield has a lot of potential to keep gamers busy for years to come. Originally scheduled for release in late 2022, Starfield’s new release date is now set for September 6, 2023!
In trailers and gameplay reveals Bethesda has hinted at the player’s ability to possibly have more than one starship – and even if having only one, needing a crew to help work and fly your transport. In addition, it has also been said that crew members can be stationed at your outposts on other planets and moons in order to oversee their resource production and maintenance. This could mean that Starfield will have a lot of potential companions for the player character to meet and befriend. So far, specific information has only been revealed about one in particular:
Vasco is a bi-pedal expeditionary robot owned by the Constellation faction you meet with early in the game. As described by Bethesda, he is a utilitarian, heavy-industrial machine well-suited to the rigors of space travel. Vasco’s design is based on a Type-A bipedal chassis capable of traversing rough terrain, along with all the survival gear, and payload capacity needed for extended overland journeys. His primary role is peaceful, but he does have some defensive capabilities should the need arise.
