As promised, Xbox and Bethesda have revealed the first gameplay footage of Starfield, the upcoming space RPG. Suffice it to say that the wait was worth it as the game seems ambitious in its proposals and the options available to the player.
This Sunday, June 12, 2022, Xbox and Bethesda have arranged a new conference with players. For the manufacturer and publisher recently acquired by Microsoft, it was an opportunity to present all the titles that will be released on the Xbox and Xbox Series consoles, on PC and of course on Xbox Game Pass.
Suffice it to say there have been many announcements including Arkane Austin’s RedFall, the new Forza Motorsport, the highly anticipated Diablo 4, Overwatch 2 and of course the mysterious Starfield. And yes, Microsoft has made it its mission to present players with a big surprise at the end of the event the first official gameplay pictures of Starfield, the next big RPG from Bethesda.
Starfield reveals snippets that are totally insane
Suffice it to say that those few minutes of play blew us both away the title seems ambitious and completely exaggerated, be it through its universe, its game mechanics or its graphics. First showed the editor a few stages of exploration and combat on an abandoned mining moon. The opportunity for players to discover the incredible lighting effects of the title as well as the hostile fauna that the player will have to encounter.
As with any good self-respecting RPG, exploration is required to find better gear for your character and survive the challenges that await you. Note that The game allows you to switch between a 1st and 3rd person view at will.
More than 1000 planets to visit!
Then we could get a brief overview New Atlantis, one of the major metropolitan cities that the player can visit. Obviously you need to explore the galaxy to find ancient artifacts that could hold the key to the origin of life in the universe. In total, The player will be able to explore a thousand different planets spread across dozens of solar systems!
But that’s not all. Starfield promises even more freedom a particularly complete character editor. You can choose a past as well as character traits, while many skill trees are available to tailor your experience the way you see fit. Weapons can also be modified at will that it will be possible to set up outposts on distant planets.
Finally, last pretty crazy feature, The player can create his spaceship from A to Z, through a special editor. Design, performance, armaments, you can choose any part of your custom Millennium Falcon. And of course, when you say ship, you say space combat!
you would have understood Starfield is shaping up to be the ultimate space RPG that Bethesda has promised. We can’t wait to get our hands on it, of course, but for now we’ll have to wait a little longer before we have an exact release date in 2023.
