The first and one of the biggest titles shown during the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase was the space RPG Starfield. The game's atmospheric trailer made quite an impression and gave us a foretaste of what awaits us on November 11, 2022, when the game will be released. And literally, because one of the developers - Keith Beltramini, who deals with lighting in Bethesda games - revealed that the video was created entirely with Creation Engine 2 technology, without the use of any cinematic tools.
The creator posted this information on his website below some screenshots from the trailer. And while it says we're dealing with alpha footage, we now have some sort of confirmation that the creators didn't resort to any additional tricks. It is worth noting that Starfield will be the first game powered by Creation Engine 2. The trailer enables us not only to have a look at Bethesda's new work, but also to see what kind of graphic quality we can expect in The Elder Scrolls VI, whose probable place of action was revealed in the video.
Beltramini noted that he worked closely with the director of Starfield Istvan Peli, to properly reflect the atmosphere of the trailer through light. Apparentlz thez were successful, as the video inspired one fan to create a concept for an arcade machine that caught Bethesda's attention.
Starfield will be a Microsoft exclusive title - a decision which met with criticism from the community - and will be released exclusively on PC and Xbox Series X|S.
