We recently got a chance to check out some gameplay from Bethesda's upcoming sci-fi RPG Starfield. This gameplay reveal was then followed by a bunch of video interviews with the game's developers. And if the prospect of watching a bunch of videos just to learn more about this game ahead of its early 2023 release seems daunting to you, you can now check out this WCCFTech article that goes over everything we know about Starfield at this point.
A couple of sample paragraphs:
Starfield has been described as Skyrim in space, though that's probably a bit reductive. Just like all Bethesda's games, it will be playable in both first-person and third-person views, and it will include staples like lockpicking, pickpocketing, and even the more recent settlement (here called outpost) building from Fallout 4 and Fallout 76.
During the gameplay reveal, fans received confirmation on a number of gameplay features. For example, Starfield includes space flight, space combat, spaceship building, smuggling, as well as disabling, boarding, and even stealing enemy spaceships.
Space flight has been confirmed not to be seamless between ground and space, as the developers believed it would have been a waste of resources trying to implement that feature.
Space combat in Starfield will be a bit slower when compared to the average twitchy space shooter. Todd Howard said the inspiration came from games like MechWarrior when it comes to the power management between weapons, engines, shields, and the Grav Drive that lets you jump out of problematic situations.
