First Images From Bethesda’s Starfield Have Allegedly Leaked

Starfield is the first new IP from Bethesda in a long, long time, and as such, it’s been kept almost entirely under wraps since its announcement.

However, a new leak is claiming to show the very first images of the game, and though it’s not confirmed as of yet, it’s definitely an exciting prospect!

As noted by PCGamer, the three leaked images come via image hosting site Imgur, where it’s claimed they’re directly taken from Starfield. As mentioned, the leak hasn’t been confirmed – or denied – by Bethesda, so take this with a grain of salt as always.

Firstly we have this shot of a spaceperson looking very space-y in their astronaut gear. We then have what appears to be some form of UI or HUD close-up. Finally we have a spaceship, which looks more like a build model rather than an actual in-game shot. Check all three of them out below.


Could this be our first look at Bethesda’s Starfield? Only time will tell!

In related news, this month saw one of the biggest acquisitions in video game history when it was revealed that Microsoft would be purchasing ZeniMax Media, parent company of Bethesda Softworks.

The buy-out, which Microsoft reportedly spent $7.5 BILLION on, means that franchises like The Elder Scrolls, Fallout, Wolfenstein, DOOM, Dishonored, Prey, Quake, Starfield and many more now belong to Microsoft.

Xbox’s Phil Spencer has confirmed Starfield will be coming to Xbox, PC and Xbox Games Pass, with a PlayStation version still unknown. As reported by Bloomberg, Spencer said: “We’ll take other consoles on a case-by-case basis.”

Microsoft had the following to say: “Just as they took the bold first steps to bring The Elder Scrolls franchise to the original Xbox, Bethesda were early supporters of Xbox Game Pass, bringing their games to new audiences across devices and have been actively investing in new gaming technology like cloud streaming of games.

“We will be adding Bethesda’s iconic franchises to Xbox Game Pass for console and PC. One of the things that has me most excited is seeing the roadmap with Bethesda’s future games, some announced and many unannounced, to Xbox console and PC including Starfield, the highly anticipated, new space epic currently in development by Bethesda Game Studios.”
