Starfield With Full Mod Support and Pronoun Selection

Some new details about the Starfield project have been revealed. We learned that full mod support is planned, as well as a character creator that will enable us to choose our preferred pronouns.

IN A NUTSHELL:
  1. Starfield will enable us to choose our character's preferred pronouns;
  2. The game will have full support for mods;
  3. gameplay show Starfield is scheduled for the summer of 2022.

Todd Howard, the creative director of Bethesda, took part in a AMA session organized on Reddit, during which he answered fan questions. Thanks to this we learned a few new things regarding the Starfield project.

The game will offer a more extensive character creation system than the studio's previous games. The player will be able to choose their preferred pronouns (he, she or it), determining how NPCs will address them. Recordings of dialogue lines have included this option.

The scale of the project promises to be impressive. Todd Howard revealed that Starfield will have three times as much dialogue as The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Furthermore, it has been confirmed that Starfield will offer full support for mods. Howard explains that the modding community has been helping to develop Bethesda's games for 20 years and hopes that it will be the same with the team's newest production. He also hopes that more and more modders will find employment in the game industry.

Howard also promised that in summer 2022 Starfield will be shown to the general public. It seems most likely that the project will appear on the show of Microsoft and Bethesda, which will be organized a week before next year's E3.

Howard stressed that the team's passion are single-player productions, but he does not regret the development of Fallout 76. The project greatly disappointed players on the day of its release, but after two years of development the creators managed to get it more or less in shape and now it is one of the most popular positions in Bethesda's output, and the experience gained during its creation will bear fruit in the future.

Starfield is coming to PC, Xbox Series X/S. The release is scheduled for November 11, 2022.
