What are all of the Starfield planets? Starfield features over 1,000 planets spread across over 100 star systems. On average, each system will have around ten celestial bodies for you to explore. We now know you can build outposts in Starfield, hire characters to staff them, and harvest resources. It’s likely then that every planet has at least one point of interest worth delving into or some valuable materials that are hard to find.

Not every Starfield planet is going to be loaded with content, and some may not have life on them at all. Some are home worlds of the many Starfield factions, where you can visit their main headquarters in Starfield cities like New Atlantis, on the planet Jemison. But many other worlds are desolate places ripe for exploration, though you’ll have to set out on foot, which is just as well as the sole concern of Constellation, one of the primary groups, is to push the frontiers of human understanding. Here’s everything we know about Starfield planets so far.

A barren, desert-like planet, home to sandy dunes and the following planets Alchiba IV, Alchiba VII, Alchiba VII-b, Alchiba X, as well as the various moons.

Alpha Andraste

A rocky, sparse, and mountainous system and home to the planets Alpha Andraste II and Alpha Andraste III.

Alpha Centauri

As the main focus of the extended gameplay reveal, Alpha Centauri is the closest solar system to our own Sol system. In the timeline of Starfield, it’s now the capital of the United Colonies faction. The system has three planets, Jemison (location of New Atlantis), Gagarin, the gas giant Olivas, and it’s moon Chawla.


We don’t know much about this system, but it is home to the planet Aranae I.


Though we’ve only seen Arcuturs’s planets from afar, we know it has a ice surface and blue rings, with one of the planets Arcturus III confirmed.

Cheyenne is home to Akila and the Freestar Collective faction that occupy the capital, Akila City. You can also expect lots of creatures, wildlife, and interesting flora to explore.


Lunara is home to the planet Vesta, which used to be a farming planet for the Freestar Collective that turned into a warzone when the United Colonies believed the Freestar Collective had breached the rules of the Treaty of Narion.


Not much is known about Moloch, but this is where you can find Moloch I.

Narion system

You can see this system during the brief glimpse of Starfield’s galactic map. It’s in the (relative) vicinity of Sol and Alpha Centauri, and while we don’t know much about this star system, it has at least one planetary body – a moon called Vectera.

In the gameplay trailer, this moon is the location where Bethesda shows off the Starfield outpost systems, where you can build and crew your own Starfield bases for various purposes.


We saw a glimpse of Nemria IV-a, the moon in this system, which orbits the planet Nemeria IV.


We don’t know much about the system Nirah, but it’s moon is called Ka’zaal which orbits the planet Kazarah.


This system hosts the barren planet Porrima, and the rock planet Porrima III, as well as various moons.

Home to the moons Piazzi IV-c and Piazzi VII-b, and the planets Piazzi IV, Piazzi VII, though not much else is known about this system.

Procyon A

Not far from the Sol system is where you’ll find this star system, home to the only known planet, Procyon III.


We know the Sol system exists in the game as it’s on the galaxy map, however, we don’t know what role it plays in the timeline of Starfield. While we know what planets are in our own solar system, we’ll have to wait to find out more regarding what’s going on with humanity’s birthplace in the open-world game. The known habitable planets in Sol are Mars.

Tau Ceti

Another system seen during the Starfield Direct, we don’t know much about the planet, apart from it follows the same numerical pattern as other star systems.

Unknown Starfield planets and systems

These planets are all known about, but we don’t know specifically where to find them in the Starfield universe:

  • Kreet, moon of Anselon – location of an “abandoned research base” and used to show off some Starfield gameplay.
  • Unnamed aquatic planet – location of the pleasure city of Neon

What can you do on Starfield planets?

According to Todd Howard, game director at Bethesda, you can “land and explore” on any planet, even if there’s a central landmark or settlement to visit. Howard is using Jemison as a specific example for this, so the rule might not be universally true. The unnamed aquatic world where you find the pleasure city of Neon, for example, might not be fully explorable because of all the water. We’ll have to wait until we get closer to the Starfield release date before we find out the full extent of how much you can explore.

If you want to check out the new information for yourself, here’s the trailer for the extended gameplay reveal.
