With less than a year now until Bethesda’s next big game comes out, a new video has been released teasing many more cryptic details about the game, along with more concept art. Perhaps surprisingly, given Bethesda’s more outlandish IPs like The Elder Scrolls and Fallout, Starfield will be more grounded than their previous titles.
There’s a lot of interesting moments in the video talking about how they thought about designing the world ofStarfield, and it comes across a lot like the ‘every button was custom designed’ speech for the launch of Fallout 4. It’s all very magical, but it’s hard to get a gauge on how much of it is just pre-marketing hype or genuine excitement. Take a look at the new video below:
There’s still a focus on exploration, with some elements from their previous titles remaining like world interaction, the first person perspective (though, assumedly you can change to third person at any time), and what Todd Howard mentioned as these special “step out” moments in all of their games.
“We always have that 'step out' moment into the world, so to say,” Todd Howard said. “The technology has changed. We've all changed. So our expectations when loading up a game, like, 'Okay, I'm going to step out and there's going to be this moment.' Us being able to do that and have it feel new every generation, every game, is something that is really special about what we do.”
“I like to say that Starfield has two 'step out' moments. That's cryptic.”
We have still yet to see any actual gameplay, and don’t expect it anytime soon. More than likely we’ll get our first glimpse during E3 2022 or around that time. But for now, it is at least exciting based on the prospect, but will fans take to the hype after so many disappointing launches in the past few years?
