Starfield romance and relationships explained

Spread the love

What are the Starfield romance options? If you’re looking for love in outer space, you’ve come to the right place. Starfield is set to be a sprawling epic, with over a thousand planets on your doorstep. Of course, this is a Bethesda game, so we already know that you’re bound to bump uglies and develop Starfield relationships while you’re off exploring the Milky Way. Well, never fear, because we’re here to guide you through the birds and the bees in Starfield.

Starfield will absolutely let you have sex with a jetpack on, but it doesn’t delve into the specifics of who can join you on this romance expedition. However, we’ve explored the ins and outs (oo-er) of Starfield romance during our Starfield review to help you get lucky in the RPG game with whoever you want… almost.

All Starfield romance options

The only Starfield companions available to romance are from the Starfield Constellation faction. While you’re free to flirt while striking up conversation with other Starfield crew members, you won’t be able to pursue a full-blown romance with them.

The Starfield romance options are:

  • Andreja
  • Barrett
  • Sam Coe
  • Sarah Morgan

Sam Coe and the player character stand together watching a dazzling sunset, as Sam confessed his love in the culmination of a Starfield romance.

How do I unlock a Starfield romance?

You can unlock a Starfield romance by raising your chosen companion’s affinity towards you. You can do this by engaging in conversation, embarking on quests, and performing actions that meet their approval.

By raising a companion’s affinity, they will ask to speak with you, tell you about their history and you can ask them questions. You’ll soon notice the ‘flirt’ dialogue option – choose this to continue raising their affinity level. Eventually, they’ll give you a quest and become a follower when you’ve completed it. Once you’ve done this, the romance options will open up, allowing you to get married and have Starfield sex.

You’ll have to strike a fine balance between making your own decisions and capitulating to your romance partner’s principles. Generally, all companions are fine with petty crimes with Starfield pickpocketing and Starfield lockpicking, but almost all of your romantic partners will disapprove of committing murder or performing morally questionable actions. Sarah Morgan, Andreja and Sam Coe have a strong sense of justice, so will disapprove of you capitulating to the Starfield Crimson Fleet and other criminals. On the other hand, Barrett appreciates jokes and Starfield credits.

Ultimately, if you have your heart set on a Starfield romance with a specific companion but you’re planning on committing a serious crime, your best course of action is to dismiss them. What they won’t know won’t hurt them – nor will it hurt your chances at a successful romance.

Can you have sex in Starfield?

Yes, you can have sex in Starfield. While this doesn’t take the form of an intimate cinematic, it does provide you with the Emotional Security buff, which provides 15% XP boost for 24 minutes.

That’s all you need to get your nethers quivering for your impending Starfield romance. If you’re feeling a bit hot under the collar, why not dip into our list of the best sex games?
