Starfield Video Details the Settled Systems, Factions, Story, and More - News

by William D'Angelo , posted on 20 October 2021 / 989 Views

Bethesda Game Studios Design Director Emil Pagliarulo in a new Starfield video has provided new details on the upcoming game. It is set in the year 2330 and is based in a small area of our Milky Way galaxy known as the Settled Systems. It extends outward from our solar system for approximately 50 light years. 

The Settled Systems has two large factions - the United Colonies and the Freestar Collective. The two factions 20 years before the start of the game engaged in a colony war and at the start of the game have an uneasy peace. 

There are still human threats like Ecliptic mercenaries, the pirates of the Crimson Fleet, violent Spacers, and fanatical religious zealots of House Va'ruun. 

The Constellation organization is focused on uncovering the mysteries of the galaxy. You are one of its newest member and will explore the deepest reaches of the Settled Systems.

Starfield will launch for the Xbox Series X|S and PC on November 11, 2022.

I'm LOVING the world building that they've shown off so far and I can't imagine how much more we'll get to discover at release. Working on a new IP may have been the spark that BGS needed to light the fire of creativity we all know they're capable of. I can't wait to sink hundreds and hundreds of hours into this one!

Plus the concept art is gorgeous and really hoping it'll be representative of the final product.

i'm 100% sure BGS can make a rich world, amazing lore, immersion, sidequests, and many other great things.
But, imho, the problems are"good gameplay" and "bug s" ... I have yet to see 1 game from BGS that gives me good gameplay (fallout 3 almost did this) and doesn't have an abundance of bugs (none ever came close)
