Starfield Timeline

Like any other AAA Bethsda title, Starfield will have a deep, engaging story and an intriguing setting for players to explore. What kind of timeline of events will players need to be familiar with when starting out on their journey?

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.
