Starfield looks to be a culmination of every big RPG Bethesda has made to date. The studio recently posted up a roundtable discussion of content, features, and mechanics found in the new spacefaring game. Starfield is made for wanderers, Bethesda promises.

The update outlines some interesting mechanics, including some borrowed from Cyberpunk 2077. Starfield will allow gamers to chose different origin stories, which will affect their starting location, factions, and overall attributes. There's even one faction, Ryujin Industries, that's similar to the corpos in CD Projekt RED's sci-fantasy game.

Oh, and we also got a small look at one of the robot companions in the game.

The devs outline the following factions:

  • United Colonies - Future of space republic, idealists
  • Freestar Collective - Space western fantasy, people that are out there on the frontier
  • Ryujin Industries - Megacorp, represents corporate life
  • Crimson Fleet - Space pirates

Bethesda confirms that Starfield will have photogrammetric scans baked right into the game, which is something we outlined previously. These new visuals should create in-game graphics befit of a true next-gen game and represent some of the more major tweaks made in Bethesda's new Creation Engine 2.0 overhaul.

Sadly we didn't get any actual visuals of these photogrammetric scans in action.

The devs say that Starfield should have a new and improved dialog system complete with an upgraded persuasion mechanic that's sourced directly from Oblivion.

And of course we have lots of new concept art (see below). Let's hope we get some gameplay soon.

Starfield is due out on November 11, 2022 exclusively on Xbox Series X/S and PC.
