As in earlier Bethesda games, there’s a main quest to follow which involves a space collective known as Constellation which is looking for mysterious space artefacts… Of course, in typical Bethesda fashion there will be plenty of side quests to take on and factions to join in Starfield’s universe. But the biggest draw here is planetary exploration, as there will be about 1,000 planets to explore in the game. These being too similar to each other is something of concern to players, although Bethesda has assured fans that the planets feature plenty of handcrafted content, meaning Starfield could be one hell of a space epic when it arrives in the second half of 2023.
Release date: September 6, 2023. Available on Xbox Series X/S and PC.
