Since it was delayed Starfield has gone from being one of the most anticipated video games of 2022, to one of the most anticipated of 2023. To date, we still know little about what is in effect the new great space epic from Bethesda, and although for the moment the game does not yet have a better defined launch window, the US company occasionally returns to tell us something new about its title. Just recently the development team made a statement revealing some more details which increases the curiosity towards the project.
The new information about Starfield allows us to better understand some of the contour elements that underlie this new videogame universe. In fact, in the new effort by Bethesda, humans had to leave Earth to resettle on Mars. Precisely this exodus, so tragic and mysterious at the same time, will be one of the themes that will be treated within the experience.
Giving us new insights into this issue was Will Shen, lead quest designer of Starfield, who recently stated that players will be able to visit different planets within the game, but Earth, it seems, has become a inhospitable place and now impossible to live. It is not yet clear whether we will be able to land on our home planet to see what state it is in, but if you look for human interactions, you will surely find those on Mars and not on Earth.
“Players will be sent on a mission to uncover the mysteries of the artifacts. And they'll find themselves wondering what happened to Earth, but they're also going to visit Mars,” Will Shen said in an interview excerpt he participated in. All beautiful and very intriguing, but to date, unfortunately, we still have to underline that Starfield doesn't have a launch date better specific, with the game arriving in a more generic 2023.
