Before his passing earlier this year, Alex had made waves on the Starfield subreddit by expressing his remorse that he wouldn’t be able to play the game due to his cancer diagnosis. And as the game neared launch the community continued to remember him in response to his passing, suggesting folks name their ships to honor Alex.
Over the weekend, during prerelease of the game, someone on Reddit discovered that the developers at Bethesda included a heartfelt note in the game from Alex with the following message:
To all my friends and fellow explorers,
I’m always with you, out there in the starfield.
It’s wonderful to see Alex’s legacy honored so well these last few weeks, and now he’s memorialized forever among the stars.
Update: For any players, apparently it’s “[f]ound on the Eye, on the right when you enter.”
