Starfield is a game that’s still shrouded in mystery, but Bethesda has uploaded a couple of videos that provide insight on some of the exciting locations that players will be able to journey to in the spacefaring RPG.
The videos were actually presented earlier this month to members of Constellation, a community program that Starfield fans can join to receive exclusive news and updates on the game (sign up here), but it wasn’t until today that the unlisted links were widely shared on social media.
The first Starfield location that Bethesda revealed is the pleasure city of Neon. Comprising a giant fishing platform built by the Xenofresh Corporation, it is located on an aquatic world that is dominated by oceans. The planet is notable for a drug called Aurora, which stems from a fish with psychotropic properties that’s unique to the planet.
Next up is the space port of the city of New Atlantis, the capital city of the United Colonies. The United Colonies is the most powerful and established military and political faction in Starfield. According to design director Emil Pagliarulo, New Atlantis is a melting pot of different races and ethnicities, a city that serves as “a true reflection of the future of our world.”
The third and last location that Bethesda teased is Akila, the capital of the Freestar Collective (a confederation of various star systems). The city is walled in order to keep out dangerous alien predators called the Ashta. They have been described as a cross between a wolf and a velociraptor.
Starfield will be released exclusively for Xbox Series X|S consoles and PC on November 11, 2022. It isn’t clear when (or if) the game will be available for PlayStation consoles.
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.
