Story in Starfield is set in the universe the game has created, in an area of our solar system called The Settled Systems. The game is set in the year 2330, in a relatively small pocket of the Milky Way, in an area that extends outward from our solar system for approximately 50 light years. Around 20 years ago (2310), the 2 largest factions in the Settled Systems, the United Colonies and Freestar Collective, engaged in a Colony War. Today, these major factions are at peace, although this peace can be described as "uneasy". More about the Story will be covered on this page. Once the official information is released and once Starfield is launched, this page and its content will be updated.
