Starfield is first new RPG IP from Bethesda Game Studios since the inception of The Elder Scrolls back in the 90s, thus easily making it one of the most anticipated games aimed for release this year.
Starfield’s story takes place in and around a region of space known as the Settled Systems: a 50 light year radius of human expansion around our own solar system. It’s divided up between two major factions—the United Colonies and the Freestar Collective—who are at an uneasy peace after a recent war.
Players might face other threats, including “Ecliptic mercenaries, pirates of the Crimson Fleet, violent Spacers, or even the fanatical religious zealots of House Va’Ruun.”
Also introduced are other Starfield cities and locations: New Atlantis, the capital of the United Colonies, and Akila City, the capital of the Freestar Collective, which is walled to keep out “alien predators that are a cross between a wolf and a velociraptor.” The latest addition is Neon, the ‘pleasure city’ that used to be a fishing dock until workers caught a psychedelic fish and the entire area turned more towards nightclubs than angling.
