Starfield is an RPG set in a science fiction universe. It was developed by Bethesda Game Studios, the team behind the bestselling The Elder Scrolls series and, since 2008, Fallout. At the same time it is the studio's first project in twenty-five years which represents a completely new brand.
Starfield offers us a vision of the future, in which the colonization of space has become a fact. In 2310 in The Settled Systems (a small fragment of the Milky Way, located about 50 light years from the Solar System) a bloody conflict broke out between two factions - the United Colonies and the Freestar Collective. The war ended when an uneasy peace was made, and the result was to make this piece of the Universe filled with danger.
The action of the game begins twenty years later. We start the game in the ranks of Constellation - an organization exploring the Milky Way and discovering its secrets. During the game we have a chance to travel the whole galaxy and learn the biggest mystery of mankind.
In Starfield we watch the action from first (FPP) or third (TPP) person perspective. We start the game by creating a character; we decide about his or her appearance and choose a personal pronoun, which will determine the way in which other people will speak to him or her. Then there's nothing else to do but to start the adventure, which leads us through a variety of worlds. Among the locations waiting to be visited we can find New Atlantis (a giant metropolis with a huge space port), Neon City located on a fishing platform (whose economy is based on a drug called Aurora) or even Akila City surrounded by a high wall.
In addition to the tasks pushing the plot forward, a lot of missions and side activities were prepared for the game. Apart from the two main factions, in the game world there are a number of minor ones, such as mercenaries of the Ecliptic, pirates of the Crimson Fleet, brutal rejects or fanatical House Va'ruun, and their interests often conflict with each other. In the game there is also no shortage of battles with enemies; during dynamic clashes with hostile humans or aggressive beasts we use a futuristic arsenal. As we progress we develop our character, which allows us to face more and more challenges.
Starfield works on Creation Engine 2 technology, a new version of the engine used by Bethesda Game Studios for years, prepared especially for this project. We can listen to the soundtrack, which was composed by Inon Zur. Similarly to previous works of the studio, the described title offers full support for mods.
