All Religions in Starfield

There are a total of three religions that you can join in Starfield. While those three are the only ones you can become a part of, there are technically more. In a Q&A session with developers of Starfield in August 2023, they confirmed that there are real-life religions that can be heard about across the universe. Of the three you can play, there are:

  • The Enlightened – a group of humanitarians.
  • House of Va’ruun – religion who believe they should search for God in space.
  • Sanctum Universum – cult-like believers of the Great Serpent, a god who will eventually kill non-believers.

All Traits for Religions in Starfield

There are three different traits, one for each religion, you can select when character-building in Starfield. You can only have one equipped, as the other two will conflict with the one selected:

  • Raised Enlightened – Get a chest of goodies from Enlightened. Lose access to the chest from Sanctum Universum.
  • Raised Universal – Access to Sanctum Universum chest of goodies. Cannot use Enlightened chest.
  • Serpent’s Embrace – When grav jumping, health and oxygen are improved. You must grave jump regularly, or your health and oxygen will suffer.

Which Starfield Religion is the best to choose?

Picking a religion to join is a very personal choice, even in a game like Starfield. Ultimately, there are not too many strong advantages in one way or another when choosing a religion in Starfield. If you are using the traits, we recommend the Serpent’s Embrace, as it gives you more pros than cons.
