Starfield is releasing in September, which is just about two months away, however the await Bethesda’s area opera has followers on the Starfield subreddit combing by means of the gameplay deep dive for something from data on ability timber and kit to spoons, apparently. A thread made by a since-deleted consumer (which is regarding in itself—what are you attempting to cover, Todd?) gathered 1.2k upvotes. 

The thread, titled “Forks confirmed, however nonetheless no spoons. Guys, I am fearful,” begins with a screenshot from one other thread from two years in the past which asks: “Do you suppose Starfield could have spoons, and the way would spoons have an effect on the gameplay and general immersion?” What appeared like a shitpost again then has since grow to be a real trigger for concern, particularly contemplating the accompanying screenshot from the deep dive.

Within the screenshot, a buyer sits at a restaurant after being served what seems to be a bowl of soup, alongside a couple of servings of both area pomegranate or pies. He would not have a spoon. This had led an more and more feverish group of followers to demand: where are the spoons, Todd?

I did a contact of sleuthing myself, and except I’ve missed one thing, I can not see one. There was one thing that regarded spoon-adjacent within the Management ability tree, however upon additional inspection it seems to be a lit match. I am beginning to see spoons where there are not any now.

To see if this simply was a worldbuilding factor, what with Bethesda’s acknowledged NASA-punk model, I visited the official NASA web site to see if spoons had been truly utilized in area, and sure, they’re: “Astronauts use knife, fork, and spoon. The one uncommon consuming utensil is a pair of scissors used for chopping open the packages.” That is due to the “spoon bowl”, a grim-looking rehydratable plastic bag with a literal valve connected to it that facilitates spoonable meals for area explorers. Fascinating feat of engineering, however it would not make my tummy rumble.

This is perhaps why sandwiches are a collector’s merchandise in area, however it’s most likely only a quirk of no matter procedural components Bethesda has used to generate its meals and cutlery. Maybe the client featured in Bethesda’s deep dive wished a problem together with his meal. As consumer Flyraidder places it: “Guys, should you can’t use forks rather than spoons. It’s a ability situation.”
