Available to peruse on the Starfield website, the timeline shows the history of humanity’s journey into space, including many key events and moments leading up to the game’s setting. It begins with humanity taking its first steps on Mars in 2050, before eventually making its way to our neighboring galaxy Alpha Centauri in 2156, and only a few years later establishing the United Colonies, one of the factions players will deal with in their adventures.

From there, the timeline continues with multiple vital events, including the founding of New Atlantis, a couple of wars between different factions, including the Freestar Collective, the discovery of alien artifacts, and multiple key characters joining and forming Constellation, one of the main factions players will interact with in Starfield.

Additionally, we get some information on characters players can expect to meet in the game, like Sarah Morgan, Same Coe, and Vladimir Sall, as well as some details on the few years leading up to the game setting, including how the United Colonies gets whooped in a war thanks to the Freestar Collective, and the creation of “The Eye”, as deep space scanner we can expect to see during the game at some point. It’s rather lengthy, so if you are interested in the history and lore of Starfield, we recommend giving it a look to get the full details.

Bethesda doesn’t shy away from packing their games with lore and history, and Starfield looks to be no different. Even the snippet we have been shown has a lot of depth and details on the world, and we can imagine the full release will have plenty more to find and read, listen to, or discover during your adventures.
