Bethesda has released three epic Starfield shorts that showcase the imagination and spirit of the new spacefaring IP.
In a surprise move, Bethesda today released three animated shorts set in its new Settled Systems Anthology series. The clips are a blend of some of the most colorful and expressive sci-fi influences of our modern era, with strong tones of classic mecha anime, Syd Mead futurism, and John Berkey's blazing vibrancy.
Apart from the visuals, the other thing that stands out is that there is no dialog in any of these videos. There doesn't have to be. The footage and the strong musical tones really tell the story...and that is something special.
Starfield releases on September 6, 2023, exclusively on the Xbox Series X/S consoles, Xbox Game Pass, and PC.
