What do the leaked Starfield achievements list tell us about the game?

In the gaming world, there’s nothing like a new release from Bethesda to get everyone talking. This is particularly true for Starfield, the latest offering promising to take players on an unparalleled journey into the universe. As anticipation builds to a crescendo, a slew of achievements linked to the game has leaked online, courtesy of Insider Gaming and PlayStation Game Size (we know, the irony hasn’t been lost on us either).

The achievements list only confirms what we all knew about Starfield all this time.

For the brave who dare tread the spoiler terrain, these achievements offer a tantalizing peek into the vast expanse of Starfield.

With a total of 50 achievements reportedly leaked across platforms, the sheer variety speaks to the scope of the game. Expectedly, several achievements touch on the mundane, from completing tasks to combat-related feats. Yet, where the list takes an intriguing turn is when the list delves into the game’s quests, companionships, and factions.

It’s not so often that leaks do a game good and this is one of those rare instances.

Boots on the Ground stands out, for example, an achievement tied to landing on a staggering 100 planets. Considering Bethesda has confirmed the presence of over a thousand planets at launch, hinting at the epic scale of exploration that awaits players. Adding to the immersive experience is Family You Choose, which nudges players towards recruiting ten unique companions. Taking such relationships to the peak will unlock Starcrossed, a testament to the emotional depth Starfield aims to reach.

From the list, a tale emerges – an opera spanning across galaxies, teeming with adventure, politics, and high-octane action. Players can expect to navigate the intricacies of joining factions like the Constellation, Freestar Rangers as well as Ryujin Industries, and the UC Vanguard. The more adventurous can even dip their toes into the murky waters of the Crimson Fleet.

For completionists, there’s plenty to keep them busy. From Quantum Essence collectables to skill magazines reminiscent of the bobbleheads from the Fallout series, the hunt for collectables promises to be thrilling.

Starfield will be available to play as early as the first week of September for a select few.

However, there’s a lot more we can gleaned from the list, particularly for those that are familiar with the usual Bethesda game mechanics. A level 100 achievement suggests a possible soft cap, hinting at a character’s potential to acquire 30% of available skills and their ranks. While the max level remains elusive, the role of skill books could affect this, which could either bestow additional skill points or introduce unique skills altogether.

Yet, it’s worth noting that these achievements also paint a picture of the game’s depth. The need to amass 500 resources for an achievement suggests that engaging in certain in-game mechanics, like owning space bases, might not make as much profit as players might assume. Conversely, the lack of an achievement for hoarding money is likely intentional, either hinting at the game’s unique economic system or simply Bethesda’s approach to achievements.

Starfield is shaping up to be a titanic endeavor, and if the achievements are any indication, players are in for a treat. The intense space battles to the complexities of intergalactic relationships all point to a game will truly redefine the RPG space genre.

We’ll find out soon enough just how massive Starfield will be.

As the community scrambles to dissect every morsel of information available, it’s clear that Starfield is not just another game; it’s an event.

In the end, only time will reveal if Starfield can live up to the colossal expectations. But given Bethesda’s legacy and the snippets offered by these achievements, the cosmos beckons with promise and unparalleled adventure. For now, players worldwide can only dream of the stars as they await the game’s grand release.
