Starfield consists of four main cities: New Atlantis, Akila City, Neon, and Cydonia. Of these four, players will spend the majority of their time venturing to the largest of them, namely New Atlantis. This is probably the first town the player will visit after completing the prologue on Argos Extractors,
New Atlantis is home to Constellation, UC Vanguard, and countless neighborhoods to explore, including MAST, Residential, and Commercial. In fact, it’s bigger than any previous city Bethesda Game Studios has created for its games, including Skyrim and Fallout 4.
The developers called it “a veritable melting pot with citizens of all races, creeds and ethnicities”.
Where is New Atlantis?
New Atlantis is relatively easy to find. It is located on the planet Jemison, in Alpha Centauri, and serves as the base for Constellation and the United Colonies.
Its central location makes it the ideal starting point for many expeditions, especially to Akila City or Sol.

What is there to do in New Atlantis?
When it comes to exploring Starfield’s largest city, you’ll find plenty to see and do in New Atlantis. If you choose to follow the main story quest, which will take over 40 hours, expect to visit New Atlantis frequently as part of Constellation. Otherwise, there are plenty of side quests and even an entire faction, the UC Vanguard, to join here.
When it comes to shopping, The Well and Commercial District have countless stores, including weapons, armor, a doctor’s office, and a general store.
Finally, you will find many side quests to complete. When landing at the spaceport, there are often people trying to enter the city, escaping their problems, and they often need help with these problems.
For example, I came across an ambassador from the Freestar Collective who was denied access to New Atlantis, and he asked me to help him obtain a visa and thus prevent a second war between the two factions. It’s little things like this that pop up frequently in big cities.
