Starfield Official Description

The first new intellectual property developed by Bethesda Game Studios in 25 years, Starfield is a hotly anticipated AAA single player, action role playing game which takes place across the vastness of space. Originally scheduled for release in November of this year, the game has been delayed to an as yet unspecified date sometime in the first half of 2023. This space exploration game will have many of the typical Bethesda game hallmarks – a robust main story and side quests, elaborate character creation, and an extraordinary amount of exploration. There have been a lot of articles discussing the game and what it will be like, but what is Bethesda’s Official Description of Starfield?

Starfield Official Description

You can find their description of Starfield on the official Bethesda site for the game, which states:

Starfield is the first new universe in 25 years from Bethesda Game Studios, the award-winning creators of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Fallout 4. In this next generation role-playing game set amongst the stars, create any character you want and explore with unparalleled freedom as you embark on an epic journey to answer humanity’s greatest mystery.

Game Director Todd Howard has described Starfield as “Skyrim in space” – only instead of being limited to one zone in the world of Tamriel, players in Starfield will have over 1,000 planets in over 100 star systems to travel to and explore. This suggests that players will be able to easily put in hundreds of hours into the game, just collecting resources, and building and improving your starships to enable to travel further than before will keep some gamers occupied for hours.

Bethesda’s RPGs have always revolved around the core conviction of “play how you want.” Whether your preference is questing, combat, crafting and research, or just simple exploration Starfield is a game which will have something for everyone.
