It’s not only the player who’s actively trying to kill creatures when exploring the planets of Starfield. Like in real life, Starfield fauna also have their own prey and predators. It’s not far-fetched to come across two creatures fighting to the death while roaming the planet’s interiors.
That’s what our eagle-eyed Instagram user Catlovingtreklover witnessed this week. Instead of aiming his gun and blasting two huge fauna that he came across, our photographer of the week went to Photo Mode.
Those are huge fauna and not to be trifled with, so it’s understandable that Catlovingtreklover wouldn’t want to get involved. What could they be fighting about? A prey that one wants and the other is trying to covet? A domestic dispute? We have no way of knowing, of course.
Pictures like these are one reason we encourage our fellow explorers to keep Photo Mode in mind when hunting for fauna. You can kill them, scan them, and take pictures of them for your personal records.
When you post your pictures, don’t forget to add the hashtag #PortalSnapshot so we can see them in our social media feeds. Like Catlovingtreklover here, your pictures are featured in our weekly gallery and video.
It’s only been a month and three weeks since Starfield’s launch date, which saw an impressive turnout of 6 million players. Many people have since finished their runs of the game, with one person claiming to have explored all 1,695 planets in the game.
With the launch of Starfield’s first DLC, Shattered Space, still looming on the horizon, players have many questions. Some are wondering if Starfield will feature microtransactions, or in-game purchases, which is common among online multiplayer games.
