As Bethesda continues to reveal more about what Starfield has to offer, there's one question on the minds of players: What is the Starfield max level?

When galavanting across the galaxy, your Starfield level is determined by the total amount of XP earned from completing quests after landing on a variety of planets. Just like previous Bethesda releases, there are a number of ways to increase your level.

But, before we reveal more about the Starfield max level, check out our other guides showcasing the best stealth build along with the best starting builds to begin your save on the front foot.

Bethesda says there is no Starfield max level to achieve. Considering the game is meant to take several hours to complete, this is great news if you're looking to explore the entirety of the galaxy without feeling constrained by a level cap.

Although there's no Starfield max level to worry about, it's worth noting that skills do feature a maximum cap. As we work through the game, we'll have all there is to know about Starfield skills and how they work.

Do Starfield star systems have max level?

Although your character won't have a Starfield max level, it's unclear if the game's star system will feature a level cap. It's likely that it will, given the challenges of creating a truly infinite progression system.


Certain areas of the map will feature levels that change to reflect your current level. This is great as it means most areas will act as a challenge for everyone instead of being a walk in the park for those quickly climbing the ranks. That'll also reflect in enemy levels, gradually scaling up in difficulty as you level up and grow stronger.

That's all there is to know about the Starfield max level so far. For more, take a look at our guides showcasing Pacifist builds and how to aim down sights.
