The economy is fixed, but the prices of goods bought and sold can change based on the Skills you choose.”
About the crew members we can recruit, Shen said: “There are more than 20 named characters that can join your crew. Four of them belong to Constellation and have the most story and player interaction, but all named characters have their own background and can follow you everywhere (and bring your extra things and equipment).”
“When we started pre-production on Starfield, we looked back at our previous games and realized how popular and effective companions were. So they were a big priority for us, and we really wanted to tie them directly to the mission. major“, added Pagliarulo. ” There are some really big moments with them, specifically. I also have to mention that our voice cast is amazing. We haven’t released the list yet, but you can be sure there are plenty of talented actors bringing these characters to life.”
You will also have to count on some of your allies being good combatants, because the developers have also confirmed that it will not be possible to make a purely pacifist game in the game.
