Hopetown in Starfield is one of the many settlements and places you can visit in your journey across the stars. It's part of Freestar Ranger space, so if you've got a bounty on your head from the Rangers or have done anything to make them act negatively towards you, we recommend clearing it up before visiting.

Hopetown is also home to HopeTech, one of the ship manufacturers in Starfield. You can head into their main base of operations here to take a look around to upgrade your ship or purchase a new one.

Without further ado, we're here to show you how to find Hopetown in Starfield.
