Either way, if you haven’t finished the main quest and heard about the game’s New Game Plus mode (a first for Bethesda), I’m here to answer the question: Should you rush through the main mission?

Feel free to continue reading without worrying about spoilers, as I’ve omitted as many as I can.

Like the Bethesda games that came before, starfield It features a core set of main missions plus an impressive number of side missions, along with base building, ship building, and the fun of landing on a planet to see what happens.

Others, however, may prefer to absorb all the side quests and activities they can do, before completing the main quest as a way to kick off the journey. It’s just that this time there is a twist. starfield It has a New Game Plus mode, and its presence could redefine the way you want to play the game.

Before we weigh the narrative effect of saving or not saving key missions, let’s discuss what exactly goes into New Game Plus’ playthrough.

“One Giant Leap” is the title of the final mission of starfieldThe main plot of, and when you’re done, you’ll end up with the choice of whether to start New Game Plus, or delay it by turning around and doing other activities until you’re ready to finish the game. Once you proceed to NG+, here’s what will carry over:

  • The visual appearance of your character and the traits set at the start of the game
  • All progress in privilege trees
  • your level (starfield It has no level cap. You can max out everything)
  • Any abilities gained while playing

And that’s it! You will not be able to transfer your credits, equipment, items or ships. Likewise, outposts, character relationships, and quest progress will not carry over either. New Game Plus strips you of the basics of your character as they were at the end of the main mission, and makes you play the game again.

This is very important to keep in mind for those who want to build huge collections of gear, build epic spaceships, or establish outposts all over the galaxy. New Game Plus hits a big reset button for this stuff. So, if you plan to spend countless hours assembling and building, keep this in mind before you see the core of the game through to the end.

Do you really want to help out with the mining effort on Mars? once again? Do you really want to handle that ship that goes around Purima 2? once again? It might be best to complete the side quests early, then not worry about doing them again.

Sure, the main story is a bit different the second time around, but the side missions are basically the same. So it might be best to fill up on everything the universe has to offer first before chasing the main quest a second time, as repeated runs are more likely to focus on that primary quest line.
