Todd Howard, the director of Starfield and long-time executive maker of Bethesda, has confirmed the upcoming game will get DLC expansions after its release. Starfield's first ongoing interaction trailer was recently shown at the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase during Summer Game Fest 2022, offering fans their first full gander at what they can expect from the space RPG.

Bethesda games are no strangers to post-launch content. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has earned a reputation for its numerous re-releases throughout the last 10 years since it turned out in 2012, with a significant number of the new versions offering additional game modes such as the Anniversary Edition's Survival mode. As well as new game modes, Bethesda has also supported Skyrim will a host of expansions and additional items, including Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn. With each new DLC came new mechanics and ongoing interaction, once again introducing content from previous TES games or in any event, adding mechanics like home-working to Skyrim.

Speaking with IGN after Starfield's ongoing interaction uncover at the Xbox and Bethesda Showcase, executive maker and director Todd Howard confirmed that Starfield will get DLC and expansions after its 2023 launch. Though Howard didn't carefully describe the situation on what the extra content will seem to be, he spoke on how players' involvement with previous games shaped Bethesda's methodology for this new RPG with a specific gesture to the modding community, stating:

"We've discovered that individuals truly do play our games for a ridiculously long time. They're still playing Skyrim - not straight for 10 years, but they leave it and they return and there's extra content. Certainly we will really do extra content for this game, and we love our modding community. We actually think this game, for our modding community, will be a fantasy as there's so much they could do."









The new interactivity trailer for Starfield wasn't a short one, offering an entire 16-minute presentation that uncovered various key aspects players can expect, remembering details for exploration, combat mechanics, and opportunities for customization. Players will have access to an expansive customer creator as well as the ability to construct their very own ship to use to investigate Starfield's cosmic system of north of 1,000 planets. Indeed, even among this new information, notwithstanding, there are still plenty of unknowns, making it difficult to speculate on what future DLC or expansions could hold.

Many fans are contrasting Starfield's scope with the likes of No Man's Sky and Elite Dangerous, which could certainly demonstrate as direct competitors to Bethesda's upcoming space-faring odyssey. While its vast universe is probably going to keep fans busy for some time, it should be reassuring to numerous that the engineer will continue to support Starfield after its release. Whether or not DLC will add much more planets to Starfield or even follow a similar pattern to Skyrim's DLC, Starfield fans will have to wait a little longer to find out.
