One giant leap for space gaming!

Bethesda has always prided itself in giving their players the ultimate, open-ended RPG experience in each of their games, and Starfield is the latest and greatest example of it. Whether you want to stick to the story, or go off the beaten path and explore everything that a galaxy of hundreds of planets has to offer, or a good balance of both, the choice is all yours. If you’re wanting a good idea of what exactly to expect from Starfield’s main story, here is our handy guide for all of Starfield’s main quests in the game.

Before you read any further, be aware that this guide includes major spoilers for Starfield’s main campaign. If you don’t wish to know certain details of where the story will take you, we suggest returning to this guide at a later time.

However, if you’re not as concerned with that, and simply want an overview of how long the main story is and in general what to expect, we’ve got the full quest outline for you. There are a total of 19 main quests from start to finish (excluding heavy side quests like ‘Power From Beyond’ which are still recommended for making things easier down the line).

We’ve included the name of each quest in the basic order they become available (though some later ones can intertwine), along with their starting location, and the basic rewards you receive upon completion.
