Watch 15 minutes of Starfield play

After one early glimpse of Starfield at Microsoft’s Xbox & Bethesda showcase last year and a delay until 2023, we now get a much closer look at Bethesda’s first new IP in 25 years thanks to 15 minutes of gaming. Starfield is of course played out in space where players take on the role of a final group of explorers. Described as “Skyrim in space ”, by game director Todd Howard, RPG will be able to be played in both first and third person, but in the first place it is first person.

During the early stages of the game, we arrive at Creet’s Moon, just one of more than 1,000 planets that players will be able to fly to and explore freely. Powered by Bethesda’s new Creation Engine 2, the first Starfield the game shows a player who roams freely in both first- and third-person views, gathers resources and disturbs creatures that also search for Starfieldmany planets.

The game continues to an abandoned research lab, where pirates hide. This is where we see the XP progression system in action per death, and the available weapons in Starfield. You can even use a jetpack to push yourself against enemies. As with previous Bethesda games, you have to choose the locks of weapon cases that are everywhere Starfield if you are looking for prey.

The main story is centered around the constellation, the last group of space explorers. You will meet them in the capital New Atlantis, where you will discover that this group of explorers is chasing artifacts across the systems of Starfield. What are these artifacts used for? It’s the puzzle to solve. The system i Starfield are full of groups that you can team up with to tackle the pirates.

Bethesda relies heavily on character customization, and Howard reveals that character creation is the studio’s “most flexible to date,” allowing you to customize skin tones, facial texture, hair, and more. You will choose three properties to customize for your character and the skill system will include unlocking and separate levels. You can also use resources to create weapon modes in addition to this.

You can build your own resource generation outpost across the planets, and you can hire characters you meet to keep them going. You can also build your own spaceships, choose your crew members and completely customize the look and layout of the ship. There are a variety of ship manufacturers and modules, so it looks like it can be easy to create a unique ship with different weapon systems or shields.

Flying around looks especially impressive Starfield, and it suggests that many of the battles in the game will not be limited to just planets. You can land and explore freely on any planet in the system Starfield, and Bethesda says there are more than 1,000 planets, all open to gamers to explore. It looks incredibly ambitious – even if the gameplay sometimes looked a bit sluggish. We still do not have an exact date for the launch.

Starfield was originally to be launched on November 11, 2022, a nod to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrimrelease date, but Microsoft announced a delay in the vague “first half of 2023” just weeks before the Xbox showcase. Microsoft recently made a list Starfield as “early 2023” in a Xbox Game Pass Registration Page and all games on the showcase are expected to be released in the next 12 months. So it is possible that we will not wait too long to start exploring. Anyway, Starfield will be launched exclusively on Xbox Series X / S and PC next year.
