A release date for Bethesda’s upcoming sci-fi RPG Starfield has been unveiled, alongside a brand new trailer.
Revealed during Microsoft’s E3 2021 presentation, the new Starfield trailer provides some narrative content to the game. The shot trailer also gives us a glimpse of Starfield’s ultra-realistic space backdrop.
Thanks to the trailer, Starfield now also has an official release date. While previous rumours suggested that the game might be coming in 2021, we now know that Starfield will be coming to Xbox and PC on the 11th of November 2022. The RPG will also be available on Xbox Game Pass at launch.
Sadly, while this is great news for Xbox and PC gamers, it looks like Sony fans will be missing out on this brand new Bethesda experience. Previously, Xbox’s Phil Spencer stated that future Bethesda game exclusivity would be decided on a “game by game” basis.
So, what can we expect from Bethesda’s shiny new space RPG? Well, According to the new trailer, Starfield is ” a brand new universe 25 years in the making”. From what we can tell, the game’s story will also feature a group of eager astronauts on a quest that will take them to “the beginning of humanity’s final journey”. I don’t know about you, but this game is giving me major Prometheus vibes. Let’s hope there are no face huggers in this sci-fi adventure!
We were also told in a press release talking about the game that you can “create any character you want and explore with unparalleled freedom as you embark on an epic journey to answer humanity’s greatest mystery.”
Hopefully, Bethesda will give us a look at Starfield’s gameplay closer to its release. While 2022 isn’t lightyears away, it’s going to be while yet before we can explore Bethesda’s new galactic adventure.
Starfield is coming to Xbox Series X/S and PC on 1th of November 2022.
