Starfield features countless planets full of different biomes, but very few rivers. But they are definitely in the game and you can see the proof here, among other things. As a very pleasant and funny bonus, this planet also looks like we are in Bethesda’s previous fantasy RPG Skyrim – much to the amusement of many fans.
“Good, you’re finally awake”: Starfield fan finds Skyrim planet with one of the rare rivers
That’s what it’s about: Starfield has some hand-crafted content that you will experience primarily during the main story. But there are also countless planets with random content. A wide variety of set pieces can await you there, which not only includes laboratories or spaceship landings, but also biomes, for example.
What about rivers? Since the Starfield launch, there has been a persistent rumor that there would be no rivers in Starfield. Many fans have only seen the lakes and oceans, which are apparently much more common. But that’s not true, there are certainly rivers, but only rarely.
On Reddit, a Starfield player shows off his discovery of a river. The person there writes, probably jokingly, that the game “accidentally generated a flow.” But most commentators are not so much interested in the river as in something else.

The Skyrim planet: If you’re a Bethesda fan and played Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim years ago, the two images above should feel right at home and cozy and nostalgic. The screenshots could almost be images that come directly from Skyrim.
Accordingly, of course, many community members joke that the Starfield player ended up in Skyrim and that it’s good that he finally woke up (alluding to the beginning in Skyrim, of course).
Where can I find the planet? In the Narion system, according to the author of the post, it is said to be the second planet as seen from the sun. The location is in the Deciduous Forest biome and not too far from the ocean.
Brilliant ideas for mods, DLCs or NG+: Of course, many fans also let their imaginations run wild and think out loud about how cool it would be to get into the world of Skyrim within Starfield. Something like this would already be conceivable as an alternative New Game Plus scenario, but some mod will definitely ensure that sooner or later.
What do you think of the images, the flow and the Skyrim look in Starfield? Have you already seen rivers?
