In this article, we'll tell you everything you need to know about the Starfield game, such as the release date, rumors and leaks around it, as well as the setting, and other details. Read on!

When is the Starfield release date?

The Bethesda Starfield game was under development from 2017 already. Finally, Bethesda Game Studios revealed during the Microsoft & Bethesda showcase at the latest E3 event, that Starfield will be released on November 11th, 2022 exclusively on Xbox and Windows PC. However, in May 2022, Bethesda pushed back the release date of Starfield and Redfall until the first half of 2023. 

What does the Starfied gameplay look like?

According to the Starfield developers, Bethesda Game Studios, the gameplay is set in space, where you have to explore the stars, cosmic ships, and the galaxy. Your mission is to save the world, as “we’ve come to the beginning of humanity’s final journey”.

"In this next-generation role-playing game set amongst the stars, create any character you want and explore with unparalleled freedom. Harnessing the power of next-gen technology and built on the all-new Creation Engine 2, Starfield takes you on a journey through space as you strive to answer humanity’s greatest mystery.",- the development team shared their insights during the interview with the Washington Post.

Bethesda Game Studios Executive Producer Todd Howard got inspired by eternal questions about the space, such as what is out there? Are we alone? What are the origins of space and time and all of those things? What role does religion play in some of that as well?, and together with books and movies, video games seem like a good way to explore this side of our lives.
