Starfield Traits Guide

Welcome to the Starfield Traits Guide, where we’ll explain everything we know about Traits in the new upcoming Bethesda game Starfield.

Players can select up to three attributes from a wide list of Traits to further shape their characters. Each provides unique advantages and disadvantages and thus traits are optional. However, some traits cannot be combined with others. For example, having Traits like “Introvert” can’t be combined with the “Extrovert” trait. We don’t know how exactly the traits will influence the gameplay, yet we have some details about a couple of them. For example, with the “Kid Stuff” trait, your character will be able to visit their alive parents, and 10% of all the money players earn will be deducted and sent to the parents. This opens possible dialogue options maybe special quests or events in-game.
