Starfield is a Bethesda RPG through and through, which means one of the most important decisions is what kind of character you will play. I tend to get overwhelmed during the character creation process, and I suspect the same will happen once I boot up Starfield for the first time.

Being able to jump into the game with a character idea in mind will save you valuable time when beginning your journey. Among the options you can play with:

The character builder listed above does not contain story spoilers, nor does it allow you to create your character's appearance. You will have to wait until Starfield releases on PC, Xbox, and Game Pass until you can truly craft your character, but you'll be more prepared after using a character builder, as you can play around with your background and stats.
Can you Respec in Starfield?
At the time of writing, it is not known if you can respec your character. Starfield is a massive RPG and will feature many choices, both in terms of narrative and character customization. Being able to respec can prevent you from ruining your character, and Bethesda RPGs typically are more forgiving than other games, so it's likely there will be an option to do so. Regardless of whether there is an option to respec, your character should be fine for most of Starfield's challenges.
