Bethesda Reveals First In-Game Look at Starfield
Peter Donnell / 6 months ago
I’ve been playing Bethesda games since… well, for as long as I can remember, actually. I don’t mean the other studios, of which there are many, but their core brand, so that means The Elder Scrolls and Fallout. They’ve been a two-trick pony ever since. However, now… there’s a third addition to their range, Starfield. It looked like this game was going to release far off in the future, but actually, it’s coming sooner than I expected. November 11th 2022 is the target window, and that honestly sounds pretty reasonable. Especially so, since we’ve heard this game has been in some form of development for a very long time.
The games release date is even hidden in the E3 trailer, a nice touch. However, remember that the new Elder Scrolls Game won’t be coming out until after Starfield, so it could 2, 3, even 4 years before we play that! …damn.
The trailer above is pretty decent and actually made me think of Mass Effect rather than Fallout or Elder Scrolls. It has a very different feel, and that’s a good thing. The spacefaring RPG will no doubt be quite different to what we’ve seen so far though, as this is a very early showing, and I suspect Bethesda are sneakily holding their cards closer to their chest than they want us to think.
