Starfield, Bethesda Game Studios’ expansive space RPG, is filled with countless mysteries, exhilarating adventures, and intriguing characters.
One of these intriguing characters, to the delight of long-term Bethesda fans, is an Easter egg straight from the company’s history: the Adoring Fan.
This character, reminiscent of the one from The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, will become part of your crew and provide you with gifts throughout your cosmic journey. So, how do you unlock this charming companion? Let’s dive into it!
The History Of The Adoring Fan
In The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, the Adoring Fan was a character that players could unlock after becoming the Grand Champion in the Arena.
He was notorious for his constant following of the player and his boundless enthusiasm. The character was so well-loved for his unique personality and quirks that he became a staple in Oblivion’s fandom.
Fast-forward to the year 2310 in Starfield, and we’re seeing this quirky character make a comeback. In an affectionate nod to their past games, Bethesda has included a similar character in Starfield, who pops up randomly as you explore and joins your crew.
How To Get Starfield Adoring Fan
To get the Adoring Fan in Starfield, you will need to select the “Hero Worshipped” trait. This trait acts as the gateway to having the Adoring Fan in your crew.
These traits are applied when creating your character and are actually optional so if you didn’t want any you could. However, you would miss out on some gameplay mechanics including the Adoring Fan.
Once you’ve selected the “Hero Worshipped” trait, the Adoring Fan will make random appearances during your adventures so keep an ear out for that familiar voice.
His interactions won’t just be limited to following you around, though. As part of your crew, he will provide you with gifts that can be useful in your gameplay.
The specific types of gifts the Adoring Fan provides remain to be discovered but as he worships you, we’re sure that they’ll be pretty useful.
If you are finding him too annoying, however, you can ‘take care’ of him by using your weapons, but this is a permanent solution so keep that in mind.
The inclusion of the Adoring Fan character in Starfield not only adds an extra layer of charm to the game but also serves as a delightful treat for long-term fans of Bethesda games.
As a faithful companion, he can make your exploration of the Settled Systems even more enjoyable. Keep an eye out for him as you journey through the cosmos – he might just pop up when you least expect it!
