What to expect from Starfield

The game is set in the 24th century, where humanity has colonized multiple star systems. The player takes on the role of a space explorer who can create their own character and choose their own destiny. They can explore a vast universe, complete missions, and build their own starship.

Starfield is the first new intellectual property developed by Bethesda in over 25 years. It is being built on the new Creation Engine 2, which will allow for a more detailed and immersive experience. The game is also expected to have a large number of planets to explore, with only a fraction of them containing life.

The game is out for Premium Edition owners and has very positive reviews with several outlets giving it 9/10 and 10/10. There are some complaints regarding PC performance but the feedback regarding the core gameplay is quite positive.
