Changing your appearance in Starfield is easier than you might expect. If you want a makeover, you’ll want to head to one of the several Enhance stores in various main cities. For this example, we’re going to use the Enhance store in New Atlantis. This can be found by fast-traveling to the Commercial District and going past the SSNN building. You’ll find the Enhance store nestled in between the Outland store and Infinity Ltd.

Speak to the store owner, and they’ll ask for 500 Credits to change your appearance. Do so, and you’ll be brought to the character creation screen, similar to the start of the game. This includes all sorts of customization options, namely the ones that you had access to when first creating your character.

If you’re looking to change more finite things like gender and character pronouns in Starfield, that’s also possible. Once you’ve changed anything cosmetic about your character, press either the R key on PC or the X button on controller to enter your name. From here, you can either re-enter your current name or add a new one if you want something fresh. Once you’ve done that, either press the B key on PC or the Y button on controller to cycle through the available pronouns. The available pronouns include He/Him, She/Her, and They/Them. From there, just press the R key or X button again to confirm your choice, then the E key or A button to save your changes.
