November 9, 2023: Starfield is now out for few a weeks, and with that we've updated our guide on how many quests there are in the game.

With an RPG as big as this, knowing how many Starfield quests there are is something many Bethesda fans are trying to figure out. For a lot, this is quite important as the answer to this question could be a reflection of the amount of content in the game.

Even after its release, the number of missions in Starfield may change with the release of different DLCs and other content updates. Regardless, be sure to check back regularly, as we'll update this guide as more quests come to light.

How many side missions will there be in Starfield?

Currently there are a ton of side quests, but we assume that DLCs will most likely add more side quests to the game.

However, here are just a few examples of the side quests you can complete across Starfield's 1,000+ planets:

  • Deliver Low-K Superconductors to [...]
  • Deliver Microdrones to Porrima III
  • Transport miners to Europa
  • Supply tungsten (W) to Mars. Sol
  • Survey Guniibuu II in Guniibuu

Will there be infinite side quests in Starfield?

The Radiant Quests system from Skyrim is a great feature that allows you to keep playing this game even after you've completed all of the main and side quests. Starfield will also feature these procedurally generated quests, and maybe we will see an improved version of this system. But at the very least, it would be nice if the game was able to generate more varied quests.

Starfield looks like it will be an incredible game and definitely stands out from the TES and Fallout games. After all, there aren’t many AAA sci-fi RPGs out there, so it’s great to see some fresh faces in this niche.

But there you have it, that's everything we know regarding Starfield quests so far! If you are looking for more information about this game, be sure to check our guide on how to buy new ships in Starfield, also how to clear red dots from your map.
