One of Bethesda’s announcements before the holidays set in was a series of updates that would bring, among others, new ways to travel for players of its newest open-world RPG, Starfield. Unfortunately, the announcement was vague on those new features, particularly the new modes of exploration. It implied it was a series of updates that would bring, among others, “new ways to travel” for players of its newest open-world RPG, Starfield. Unfortunately, the announcement was vague on those new features, particularly the new modes of exploration announced.

With several more weeks before the first update drops in February, Redditors took to social media to discuss the possibilities for this new content.

There were plenty of suggestions, including some hilarious ones like Bethesda finally allowing you to piggyback on Sarah Morgan so she’d dislike it and complain more than she already does.

One other user also said that players might be able to ride Vasco like Star Wars’ camel-like Tauntaun beasts.

However, one suggestion that made the most sense is that Bethesda might be working on methods to allow players to favorite previously visited planets so they can travel quicker than usual. The user added that if Bethesda had wanted to include terrestrial vehicles, they would have said so.

Another user, Overall_Box_3907, theorized that Bethesda may want to integrate the Call Your Ship mod from Nexus since it makes planetary travel much more efficient - and cooler.

However, Sec_Soup argued that vehicles should be in a future update, especially with all the vehicle carcasses lying around. GammaTwoPointTwo agreed, theorizing that vehicles might have been included during development but were disabled by code, which means Bethesda could reenable them if they want to.

In any case, Constellation_XI said that if Bethesda could find a way to make Planetary travel more immersive by eliminating many of the menus and loading screens, he’d prefer that.

The playing community had eagerly awaited the release of the official modding kit for Starfield, with some theorizing that it would’ve dropped earlier than intended.

This was after the Creation Club was put down for maintenance in late November. However, it turned out to be a massive update for Skyrim instead.
