It’s official – Starfield, Bethesda’s new RPG, arrives in 2022.
The highly anticipated sci-fi role-playing game has been in the works for a long time, and during E3 we got our first real reveal. Now, it looks like we can get our hands on it when it launches on November 11, 2022.
Developer Bethesda is calling Starfield “a bit more hardcore role-playing game” with the promise of an ambitious sci-fi epic set among the stars. “Starfield is the first new universe in 25 years for Bethesda Game Studios, the award-winning creators of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Fallout 4, say it official site.
In this next-generation role-playing game set among the stars, create any character you want and explore with unprecedented freedom as you embark on an epic journey to answer mankind’s greatest mystery. “
Here’s everything we know about Starfield until now:
Starfield release date, platforms and price
If you are looking forward to Starfield, then you wait a bit – it won’t officially release until November 11, 2022. Starfield will be available exclusively on PC and Xbox Series X | S and is next-gen only, so Xbox One owners are out of luck it won’t be available on PlayStation at all.
Starfield is available for pre-order now for £ 59.99. But you might want to wait – the full game is available on Xbox Game Pass from day one.
Starfield unveils the trailer
During Microsoft and Bethesda’s highly anticipated E3 showcase, the first official trailer for Starfield has been revealed. Unfortunately, there is no gameplay sequence to be found – it’s all “in the engine”.
Since it won’t be released until the end of 2022, we may have to wait a bit to see some actual gameplay footage.
Starfield gameplay details
According to Bethesda, Starfield is a next-gen RPG with a sci-fi setting. But at the moment, there is very little that can be done when it comes to the gameplay of the game.
In an interview with The Washington Post, Bethesda Game Studios executive producer Todd Howard described the title as “like ‘Skyrim’ in space.” “For me, Starfield is the Han Solo simulator, ”said Ashley Cheng, general manager of Bethesda. “Get on a ship, explore the galaxy, do fun things.”
The official trailer gives us a glimpse of that fearless spirit of adventure – but it remains to be seen how that translates into actual gameplay, but it looks like Starfield will offer less linear gameplay.
“We like to put you in a world where we don’t shoot you by the nose and tell you that you have to do X, Y and Z, and that you have every right to want to test the [game’s boundaries]Howard said in an interview with The telegraph.
“You know, can I read this book? Can I get this back? Can i do this? What if I do this? What if I do this? And the game often says “yes”.
