Encountering Alien Life in Starfield

If you’re a fan of exploring alien worlds, then Bethesda’s new sci-fi RPG Starfield is right up your alley. With over 1,000 planets to discover, the game offers plenty of opportunities to come across unique life forms during your interstellar travels. But what about interacting with aliens? Can you meet intelligent extraterrestrial beings in Starfield?

A Variety of Alien Life Forms

Yes, Starfield does feature various alien life forms throughout its vast universe. However, it may not be exactly what you were expecting. Based on what I’ve gathered from online sources, these alien creatures are classified as “non-intelligent.” While they may attack if provoked, they generally mind their own business as long as you leave them be. Interestingly, by utilizing certain skills, you can even convince these creatures to fight your enemies, providing a safer alternative to direct combat.

The Search for Intelligent Life

When it comes to intelligent life, aside from humans, there seems to be none to be found in the cosmos of Starfield. However, the game does provide hints of an alien civilization through various artifacts you can discover as you progress. These artifacts point to the existence of a potentially advanced society that may have inhabited the universe at some point in time. By delving deeper into the main story, you may uncover more information about this civilization and its past.
