Will Starfield have co-op?

I like that Bethesda keeps their multiplayer and single player experiences separate. I'm a big Elder Scrolls fan, and I loved Skyrim and Oblivion, but I also love playing Elder Scrolls Online. They are fundamentally different games and experiences but that is fine. I'm glad BGS doesn't "consolidate" that experience like so many developers have done nowadays.

I'm really curious what ZOS is working on. It is supposedly a "space" MMO style game. Given that Bethesda has been pretty consistent with creating MMOs for their IPs I can't imagine them not doing an Starfield MMO. Like I said I love ESO but Starfield seems like 100x bigger and wider than Skyrim. I'm very curious to see what ZOS could do with it. I do think ZOS has done better with Elder Scrolls Online then BGS did with Fallout 76. Cautious optimism if this is true.

Completely agree about the importance of the distinct single player and MMO experiences. There are many players, like you, who like both. For them, I bet you're right that there will eventually be an Elder Scrolls Online or Fallout 76 online MMO version of Starfield.

But those do not take the place of a single player game. For me, if a game supports multiplayer, it's a negative, because the UI spends space on that support, which takes away from the single player game. Even Elden Ring suffers a bit for me, because of the multiplayer features and (useless to me) inventory items. I have no doubt that it's a net positive for From Software and would not suggest they should change just for me and other single-player fans, but it's still a negative to me personally. I deeply appreciate that there are companies focused on great single-player experiences like Bethesda and CDPR.

Starfield is hyped to be the ultimate RPG from Bethesda, and it's got us all buzzing. But here's the burning question: Can you dive into the adventure with your pals in co-op mode? That's the real scoop we're itching to find out!
