How to Change Your Appearance in Starfield

Seren Morgan-Roberts

We’ve all been there: you spend hours customizing your character, giving them the perfect face, hair and accessories, only to see the character in game and hate what you’ve created. Luckily for you, customizing and changing your character’s appearance in Starfield is easy and cheap, meaning you could tweak your character over and over until they look perfect in all lightings!

Where to Change Appearance in Starfield

You can change your appearance pretty much from the get-go in Starfield. All you’ll need to do is complete the prologue area and have arrived at the first major city, "New Atlantis" iconNew Atlantis. Once there, you can beeline over to the "Commercial District" iconCommercial District and locate the shop Enhance!, which is found near the TerraBrew coffee shop and the GalBank.

Locate the Enhance store in New Atlantis to customize your appearance.

Head into the building and speak with the guy working behind the desk. From here you can pay only 500 Credits (barely anything in this currency!) and you’ll get full access to the Character Customization screen again. You can change your body shape, body type, face, hair, make-up, you name it! Your character could come out of the shop an entirely new person.

And, to make it even better, you can even change your name and pronouns too. Unfortunately, this kind of drastic transformation is purely an aesthetic thing, and changing your entire character won’t work as a way to evade the law if that’s what you’re thinking! But if you are looking to do a bit more of an immersive roleplaying playthrough, you could use the Enhance! shop’s features to age your character or give it extra scars or change their hair. The ease of access to character customization could be a great story-telling tool!

Starfield is an action role-playing game from Bethesda Game Studios set in a futuristic interpretation of space exploration and colonization. Earth has long been abandoned, but there are plenty of other planets in different star systems where humans have ventured and settled. You have the freedom to create your own character with a unique background, but the main story will take you through a series of adventures as you uncover more information about mysterious artifacts which create gravitational anomalies. Along the way, you can build and customize your own space ship, establish your own outpost, befriend and romance new companions, and more. As a Bethesda game, you can also expect to see a lot of creative mods which have the potential to change your experience of the base game, or take it in an entirely new direction.
