How To Travel To Hopetown In Starfield

Even though Hopetown is a small settlement in Starfield, you can still find some important vendors and quests here.

Hopetown in Starfield is a technology industrial settlement in the Planet Polvo of the Valo system. Starfield has very diverse settlements, each with its unique theme. Hopetown is a settlement built by HopeTech to house its company employees. This settlement is a hot spot for buying, upgrading, and modding your spaceships.

The president, Ron Hope, looks after the company and the settlement. During Starfield, you will often visit the Hopetown settlement, especially if you are part of the Ryujin Industries or Freestar Rangers. To make getting to Hopetown easier for you, I just came up with its detailed location.

Starfield Hopetown location

As mentioned above, Hopetown is in the Polvo Planet of the Valo system. The Narion System is its closest neighbor. Getting to Hopetown is very simple.

But before you go there, you must remember that Freestar Collectives guard the Hopetown Settlement. You cannot take any contraband item in Starfield there as it will be caught. However, you can still store it in your shielded cargo.

To go to Hopetown, open the intergalactic map by pressing “M” on your keyboard. Zoom into the map to explore systems. Around the middle of the map, you will find the Valo System next to Narion and southwest of the Nikola System.

Click on the Valo to zoom in and explore its planets. It is the last planet in the system. Click on it and rotate the planet to find the Hopetown Settlement in Starfield. After you have found it, hold “X” on your keyboard to travel there.
