If you want to know how to change appearance in Starfield, you’ve come to the right place. Since it is the future, of course you’ll have the option to alter your looks after the character creation screen. It’d make no sense to be stuck with the initial face and body type and what have you. Naturally, you won’t be able to do so at a whim, and most likely not for free. In this guide, we are going to share everything we know on the subject, so let’s dive straight in.
How to Change Appearance in Starfield
To change the appearance of your character in Starfield, you will have to go to one of the genetics facilities that I assume will be dotted around the game. Obviously, since the game is not out yet, we don’t know where these facilities are going to be, what they look like or how they work. We only know that they even exist from the materials the developers have shared so far. The message is fairly prominent on one of the character creation screens, so it’s not exactly a secret. I do sincerely hope that changing your generic traits will also change your parents (again, the parents have already been revealed by the devs). It would be utterly nonsensical, but it would also be such a Bethesda thing to do. Either way, we’ll update the guide with more info once we have it.
Overall, though, that’s a broad overview of how to change your appearance in Starfield. I assume using the services of a genetic facility will cost you, though, so it’s probably not going to be something you’ll do all the time. However, it’s nice to know that you won’t be stuck with the face and body you make at the beginning. Speaking of, the character creation gives you a lot of options to play with, which is to be expected from a game like Starfield. Sure, you can start with a preset (of which there seem to be many), but then you can alter pretty much whatever you want. At least, one gathers as much from promo materials we’ve seen so far. Aside from looks, body type and even walking style, you’ll also choose your background and starting traits, but that’s not something a genetic facility will be able to change.
