No matter whether you paid for early access, or jumped into the game on September 6, odds are, if you’ve avoided spending all day downloading mods, you’ve likely already blazed through a lot of missions and moulded your character into a hardened spacer.
Many players have been busy getting up to wacky hijinks as they roam the cosmos, some of which have involved Thomas the Tank Engine, a sandwich-shaped spaceship, or a milky way made of literal milk. Meanwhile, one streamer has set themselves the lofty goal of visiting every planet in the game.
How many planets have you visited in Starfield so far?
The streamer in question, Jabo, has been making good progress in this mission, which was inspired by the now-infamous revelation that the game would contain over 1,000 planets, since he first blasted off into space back on September 1.
In his most recent streaming session, the intrepid interstellar explorer hit the milestone of having touched down on 200 different “space balls," as he’s affectionately dubbed the planets and moons that dot Starfield’s cosmos.
The celestial sphere that had the honour of being the 200th stop off for Jabo’s character, the fittingly-named Buzz Starfield, was Cassiopeia II-a, a rocky moon which, naturally, orbits Cassiopeia II in the Eta Cassiopeia system.
“Chat, this should be our 200th planet,” the streamer triumphantly announced as he touched down, before adding that he thought it looked “cool” and pausing to put on a space suit costume in order to celebrate the achievement in immersive fashion, as you can see in the clip below.
Having discovered a space cave that definitely didn’t look very similar to any of the game’s thousands of others, the streamer headed inside and battled their way past some turrets to claim some decent loot from a subterranean camp. He also discovered some Plutonium deposits he couldn’t actually mine because he’d left his cutter at home.
Leaving the cave, the streamer simply declared “alright, this planet fucking sucks ass,” before immediately heading on to the next unexplored planet in the system, which thankfully was a little bit more interesting, by virtue of housing a mech graveyard.
