Bethesda is gearing up to release its biggest game ever, which has been in the works for 25 years. The exact release date is not yet known, but according to the developers, Starfield will be released somewhere in 2023. You're probably wondering what you can expect from this title, namely the Starfield cities you can explore.

Starfield is a sci-fi RPG set in the distant future. Society was able to develop new technology and start exploring space. Now, at a distance of tens of lightyears, people have various colonies and can explore new planets and systems. You have to become one of these explorers and visit many different locations, including cities. Therefore, this guide will tell you about the full list of Starfield cities so far.


And while you are here, make sure to check the kind of Starfield mods you can expect when the game lands. We've also got a look at the Starfield character creation system, as well as how multiplayer may work in the game.

Full list of Starfield cities

At the moment, we know that there will be four main cities in Starfield. Each of them differs in style, design, inhabitants, and, of course, the factions that have bases there. As in previous Bethesda titles, these cities will be the main places where you can take new quests and interact with various NPCs. Unfortunately, only three out four cities are currently known, namely Akila City, New Atlantis, and Neon.

Akila City

Akila City's high walls in Starfield.

Akila City is a free city surrounded by high walls protecting the inhabitants from Ashta. These are creatures that live on the planet where Akila City is located. Also, the city is home to one of the largest factions in the game called the Freestar Collective. As such, we expect you'll spend a lot of time there.

New Atlantis

New Atlantis is one of the largest cities in the game. In it, you can meet a wide variety of people and creatures. Despite the apparent freedom, the city is very militarised, with soldiers everywhere. Therefore, you must be careful while you're there, to avoid a gunfight.



The fluorescent streets of Neon in Starfield.

Neon is the last known Starfield city. As the name implies, the city has a lot of neon, but there are also exhaust gas, drugs, and other dubious pleasures. Also, Neon city is home to Xenofresh Corporation. It reminds us of Night City in Cyberpunk 2077, and is sure to be filled with seedy characters to encounter.

That's all we know so far about the cities in Starfield. When you see them in the trailer, you'll want to explore them just like we do. Therefore, we are looking forward to news from the developers and, of course, the game release. As soon as we know more about these cities, or any new ones, we'll update this guide.
