For those that haven't been following this one, Starfield is the next big RPG from Bethesda Softworks. Amazingly we still don't know all that much about the game, but we do know that it's a sci-fi flavoured RPG in which humanity heads out on an intergalactic voyage to "see what's out there". Check out the gorgeous reveal trailer for yourself below!
As you probably noticed in the trailer, a few major things were confirmed for Starfield. The first is that the game is being developed in an updated version of the Creation Engine, that's the same engine Bethesda has used for most of its games over the years, including Skyrim, Fallout 4, and Fallout 76. We'd heard before that Bethesda had given the engine a major overhaul for Starfield, and the trailer's use of "Creation Engine 2" certainly indicates a major shift forward to make the most of next-gen hardware.
Speaking of next-gen, the trailer only mentions Xbox Series X/S and PC at the end, along with the fact that it'll be available on Xbox Game Pass on day one. This isn't a huge surprise, given that Microsoft now owns Bethesda, but this will still doubtless come as a blow to PlayStation 5 owners. Note this doesn't mean Starfield absolutely isn't coming to PlayStation 5 at some point, but we'd be surprised if the RPG launches on Sony's console.
Finally, a release date! The very end of the trailer seems to tease a launch date of November 11, 2022 for Starfield, which is very much in line with what a lot of people had been saying. It was previously thought Bethesda was targeting a 2021 release for the game, but clearly it needed a little more time in the oven. Hopefully Bethesda and Microsoft will have more information on Starfield to share soon!
