Have you ever wanted to travel to another galaxy or pilot your own a spaceship? I have the perfect game for you. Starfield is a game that will reach many different audiences; introducing an array of complex gameplay, including skills trees, unique storylines, and so much more.

As you begin, keep in mind, your mission in Starfield will be no small feat.

This article will highlight the current crew members and give you a few pointers on how to build the best crew.

Known Starfield Crew Members

The Current Known Starfield Crew Members

In Starfield, it will be your job to put together a crew you can depend on. So far, we have been introduced to 7 crew members, 4 of which will double as companions. This is your chance to see a rundown of each one.

You might will find that companions are stronger than regular crew members. However, note that crew members are essential for keeping your mission on track. Each member has their own set of skills and talents; make sure their specialties and skills are different so you have a well-rounded team.

The Best Starfield Crew

Luckily, building the best team, might not be all that tricky. Since there are only 7 crew members that have been announced, you won’t have a ton of different options for your crew. In fact, your crew will be made up of around 20 people, so all of the aforementioned members will make good candidates. As you learn about each member more, you might become more comfortable with some skills over others. Using this to your advantage will help you personalize your strategy; focusing on areas you excel in. Again, just make sure you have a wide variety of talent on your team and, as a player, focus on becoming more in tune with weaker skills.
