Todd Howard, head of Bethesda Game Studios, showed off some new scenes from Starfield, the highly anticipated sci-fi role-playing game coming to Xbox.
Howard showed a scene on the rugged landscape of the planet Kreet, where a human astronaut encounters some large crawling creatures – and chooses not to shoot. The astronaut has a cutting tool. Then the scene flies to the view of the Kreet Research Lab, a giant facility on the rocky landscape.
The astronaut has a variety of terrestrial weapons, such as a machine gun and a shotgun, and enters the lab with firearms, shooting at other people in the research lab. The astronaut shoots one enemy, sets them on fire, and then blasts them into the air.
As the game was pushed to 2023, Howard showed more details, including planet exploration, ship customization and control, outpost building, advanced RPG and character creation systems, and more.
Starfield is the first new universe in 25 years from Bethesda Game Studios, the award-winning creators of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Fallout 4. In this next-generation role-playing game set among the stars, you create any character you want and explore with freedom as you embark on an epic journey to answer humanity’s greatest mystery.
The year is 2330. Humanity has ventured beyond our solar system, establishing new planets and living as a spacefaring people. From humble beginnings as a space miner, you’ll join Constellation – the last group of space explorers searching for rare artifacts in the galaxy – and navigate the vast expanse of the Settled Systems in Bethesda Game’s largest and most ambitious game. studio.
Action in Starfield
The demo also showed a view of the New Atlantis cityscape on the planet Jemison. It is a very realistic looking futuristic city, where you meet with a group of leaders of the Constellation. Their faces also look quite realistic, for animated people. Howard showed an extended battle scene, and it looks pretty good for a space RPG title.
“It’s hard for us to express how excited we are all at Bethesda to be with you today,” Howard said. “It’s an epic role-playing game where you can be whoever you want and go where you want.”
Bethesda has been working on Starfield, a huge role-playing game set in space for a long time. It is an ambitious science fiction project with hyper-realistic graphics. Players can engage in a character creation system that Howard says is the most flexible yet.
You can build outposts and hire characters you come across. You can also build your own spaceships, Howard said. You can choose crew members and fully customize the look and layout. It has loads of different modules, ship manufacturers and more. And you can fly with it.
You can pilot your own ship created in Starfield.
mBethesda from icrosoft previously said it would delay RedFall and Starfield in 2023 because it wanted to deliver the “best, most polished” versions of the games to fans. It was one of many signs that the pandemic and home working has made it harder to make games and harder to predict when major projects will be completed.
The company made the announcement today on its Xbox and Bethesda Game Showcase. It doesn’t have a specific launch date yet. It’s a huge game and you can land anywhere on the planet Jemison. Not only in the city, but everywhere in the large space. And there are over 1,000 planets for you to explore.
“We can’t wait for all of you to experience the game,” Howard said. “It’s been an incredible journey for us to make it.”
