New Starfield Concept Art Shows City Streets & Alien Landscapes
The new trailer for Starfield shows what Bethesda’s latest RPG will look and feel like. The new video shows Starfield’s urban areas rather than the many outlandish sci-fi planets previously shown. Although not much is known about this upcoming RPG, it looks more expansive with each new detail. It is one of Bethesda’s most exciting titles.
Starfield was made an Xbox exclusive earlier this summer. The platform holder purchased Bethesda in May, meaning that all its games will be exclusive to Xbox and PC. Starfield, which was being developed for the PS5, has been rumored to be coming to the Sony-owned PlayStation platform. However, Bethesda, as well as Xbox, have ruled it out.
Starfield’s new trailer, which is not yet listed on the Bethesda Softworks YouTube channel, has teased more about the RPG’s world-building. Although the video does not feature any new gameplay, it does show some contemporary concept art that shows off some of those cities players will be exploring. Bethesda also showed more alien planets, hinting at many galactic mysteries in the new game. Starfield will be set in the future 300 years into the future, according to the developer. It will be located somewhere in the Milky Way galaxy.
Bethesda is well-known for its rich RPG worlds. The Elder Scrolls and Fallout have created worlds with vibrant characters and locations. This gives them a sense of depth. This will likely translate well to Starfield, allowing for a sci-fi universe on par with Bethesda’s other flagship franchises. Starfield will not be available for fans to see immediately, but Bethesda has promised they won’t leave anyone behind.
Since revealing the game at E3 this summer, the developer has provided some basic information to give players an idea about its scale. Starfield boasts thousands of more dialogue lines than Skyrim and Fallout 4, so there will be plenty of people or quests to explore throughout the solar system. It is still unclear what the actual story of Starfield will be, and it will probably remain that way until launch. The only thing we know for sure is that the game will feature players exploring the galaxy with a group made up of space travelers.
All businesses love to brag about the products, services, and facilities they offer. Every commercial has a “fastest this ever” or “the largest that ever” tag. Gaming is no exception. It’s not hard to believe that Bethesda is doing exactly what they say when they claim Starfield will be released in 25 years.
Starfield is a stunning game, and it makes sense that it will be epic. Bethesda has been a consistently outstanding game developer, even when there are some bumps along the way. This pedigree is likely to be present as it attempts to make “Skyrim in Space.” Starfield hasn’t been around for 25 years. This statement is just a phrase, but it carries a lot of weight.
Bethesda has not been involved in Starfield’s production for the past twenty-five year. Unless, of course, Starfield is the spiritual successor to The 10th Planet and was finally released twenty-five years after it was canceled in 1997. This unlikely fact aside, Bethesda’s claim to Starfield is a metaphor for its activities over the past twenty-five years and what it was doing in the mid-90s. Starfield is Bethesda’s most ambitious IP, and it’s rightly so. Starfield was Bethesda’s other ambitious franchise twenty-five years back with The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall.
