Starfield: Official Mod Support Coming in 2024

Starfield isn’t running short on mods right now – especially the bizarre ones – but Todd Howard has confirmed that officially supported mods will be coming to the Starfield ecosystem in 2024. For the most part, modders have already had their way with Starfield, introducing UI mods, customising companions, and inserting images of *checks notes* Phil Spencer onto flashlight beams everywhere.

However, in 2024, Starfield’s modders will get access to the Creation Kit, which is Bethesda’s official toolset for creating complicated mods in its games. There is also the potential that the door will be opened up for Xbox users to download and make use of mods, much like they have been able to in Fallout 4 for years.

The Possibilities Are Endless

From custom-built planets to entire questlines, it’s expected that Starfield’s user-created mods will be monumental.


Speaking to Famitsu, Todd Howard went on record saying:

When the mods are ready, you will be able to do almost anything as we have done in the past, and the mods will be supported next year, but we will do it in a big way because we love it too.

Since Fallout 4 was released back in 2015, it has had no trouble staying relevant and alive – and that’s mostly because of the mindblowing modding scene surrounding the game. There are tens of thousands of mods available for Fallout 4, some of which can be very minor, and some that can change the face of the entire game.
