Xbox’s E3 2021 showcase finally unveiled our first look at Bethesda Game Studios’ upcoming space RPG, Starfield, confirmed with a release date of November 11, 2022 for PC and Xbox. The short trailer showcased some of the game’s visuals, lighting, and promises of adventures in the cosmos and beyond.
Starfield was first unveiled at Bethesda‘s E3 2018 conference with a short teaser trailer, but we finally got a glimpse – albeit a CGI reveal – at the recent Xbox E3 2021 showcase. Not much information was revealed other than a release date of November 2022, which seems to be quite far off at this point in time. However, we can probably expect gameplay to roll out by next year, at the latest.
Unlike the developer’s previous journeys into the post-apocalypse and fantasy genre with Fallout and The Elder Scrolls respectively, Starfield will be a new step towards exploring grander ideas and themes as we now take off into the unknown reaches of space. The game’s new trailer revealed some impressive lighting and visuals, though it isn’t necessarily representative of the final product yet. However, in typical Bethesda fashion, a release date was cleverly placed within the game itself as we see our presumed main character preparing for lift-off, with the date appearing on the control panel.
Starfield will come exclusively to Xbox and PC, with Bethesda Game Studios now a part of the Xbox family following Microsoft’s massive acquisition of their parent company, ZeniMax Media. Needless to say, many future titles from Bethesda’s collection of developers may come exclusively to Xbox in the future, some of which also include DOOM developer id Software, The Evil Within and Ghostwire Tokyo developer Tango Gameworks, Dishonored and Prey developer Arkane Studios, Wolfenstein and the recently announced Indiana Jones game developer MachineGames, and more.
Starfield is blasting off exclusively to PC and Xbox on November 11, 2022.
