“It is possible for you to to do nearly something, similar to in earlier works,” he stated. “Mod help will likely be accessible subsequent yr, however we adore it too, so we'll do it in a giant method.”
Elsewhere in the identical interview, Howard touched on future DLC content material for Starfield. The sport's Premium Version contains the primary story growth, dubbed Shattered House, so we all know that there is not less than a kind of in improvement.
Howard, nevertheless, did not say what number of add-ons we will count on, or actually talk about the scope of them. He even wasn't able to say after we can count on the post-launch releases to kick off. For now, Starfield has greater than sufficient content material to maintain us busy till no matter secret DLC Bethesda is engaged on arrives.
