You can explore the Starfield map (in a basic way)

Do you want to explore the Starfield map but don’t want to wait until the 2023 release date to have to do it? Are you more of a fan of star maps and mathematical distance calculations than all that tedious mucking about in hyperspace? Good news then, this fan-made Starfield system navigator is for you.

We’re still finding out about Starfield space travel between its thousand-odd worlds and MechWarrior-esque ship combat, but with the game’s delay to 2023 we might have a while to wait for proper information on how moving between systems will work.

Based on the information we have on the space game‘s revealed systems comparative to their real-world counterparts, user i_need_a_fast_horse has posted an early iteration of their Starfield navigation tool on Reddit. It shows a star map along with around 75 systems – which you can play around with to work out distances between stars, best warp-jump vectors, closest neighbours, connections based on light-years, and more. You can even activate a little 3D fly-by “trailer” – which really needs some relaxing space music behind it.
