If there’s one thing a person doesn’t want to do too much of in a game, it’s reading. However, with games like Starfield that continue to get bigger and bigger, it’s not always possible to cover all the lore during the main missions. While the game itself will likely have a built-in compendium to keep track of everything you encounter, one person just couldn’t wait long enough to read it. In response, this person decided to make a full, yet totally unofficial compendium of everything that we’ve learned about Starfield thus far. And evidently, there’s quite a lot of stuff to go through.
The Unofficial Starfield Compendium
While reading can definitely slow gameplay down, it can also provide a lot of useful and interesting information for those who want to learn. Since Starfield has so many planets, lifeforms, and lore to present, everything will need to be tracked somehow. But until we see how the game does that, we’ll have to turn to outside sources.
Enter an unexpected hero — specifically, a Reddit user known as Gokamo, who posted a 1,000-page compendium of all the currently available Starfield information. It took them an unknown number of hours to put together such a full and comprehensive document, which spans just about everything there is to know. Even better, they’ve put it online for free, and anyone can check out the Google Doc right here.
Starfield is going to have a lot to show, and apparently it already does, even with so much time left until it releases. Compendiums are becoming a more expected element in games, especially the larger ones. You can see examples of thorough and detailed compendiums in games like the Mass Effect and The Witcher series, each tracking as much as possible so you can learn more about the game’s universe.
Gokamo has done a lot of work to include both external and internal information surrounding the game from interviews, to concept art, to even main mission progression. And frankly, their work is astounding.
You can start preparing for Starfield now, given that its release date has been revealed and it’s already available for pre-order and pre-installation. Now thanks to dedicated creators like Gokamo, we have an unofficial 1,000-page Starfield compendium to give us an idea of everything we can expect going into the adventure.
