Bethesda has confirmed that Starfield will have romanceable NPCs and that it’s much more detailed than previous relationships in their games. Here’s what we know so far about romance options in Starfield.

Who are your Starfield romance options?

It’s currently unknown exactly how romances will play out in Starfield but we do know that there are four main companions that are romanceable. These Constellation faction members also have their own missions.

The details are still a mystery, but Todd Howard has confirmed a bit about what we can expect.

First, relationships will be “more complex” than in past Bethesda games, with some companions liking or disliking you. How they feel about you depends on your interactions with them and how you play the game.

You can upset romantic partners temporarily with your choices. They won’t break up with you, however.

Said Howard: “So we have a number of companions, but for them we go… I won’t say super-complex-romantic, but more complex than we’ve had in terms of not just some, you know, state of they like you or they don’t like you — but they can be in love with you and dislike something you did, and be pissed at you temporarily and then come back to loving you(.) As opposed to just drifting out of that status you’re in a temporary ‘I don’t like what you did’ state.”

What can you do with romantic companions in Starfield?

While this is also not confirmed, we do know that Starfield has been described as having “suggestive material in the dialogue,” including a scene after “sharing a bed with characters,” according to ESRB. There most likely won’t be any nudity or explicit sexual scenes, but you will definitely be able to have implied physical relationships with the companions.
