Planets are smaller celestial bodies that orbit stars. Planets will have markers indicating major locations, such as New Atlantis. You can choose to land at these major locations, but you can also choose to land anywhere else on the planet.

There are 1,897 planets and 123 moons in the Settled Systems. You can also use our interactive Starfield map at to search for planets and view basic planet data.

Planet Properties[edit]

Planets and moons have different properties. Some properties are known as soon as the player enters the Star Systems where the planet is located.

Known planet types include Asteroid, Barren, Gas giant, Ice, and Rock. Gas giants can't be landed on, but often have moons.

Gravity impacts the height of jumps.

Moons orbit around planets, and tend to be smaller than planets. There are no gas giant moons.
