Game News Starfield: Earth, NASA… Starfield fans already have many theories!
Finally ! Four years after announcing the development of Starfield, Bethesda has unveiled the first gameplay images of the title, supposed to be released within the next 12 months. As you can imagine, fans and the curious scrutinize each image broadcast in order to extract additional information and to set up theories.
Starfield: a cosmic ambition
Highly anticipated but also a bit feared when it comes to finishing, Starfield promises a lot. Todd Howard, the game director, told us about a hundred systems, about 1000 planets to be exploredwith a substantial history, however, allowing great freedom, large cities, stations, construction of bases and ships, ground and space combat, recruitment of a crew, craft.
In short, a big fat Bethesda-style first-person RPG, but in space. It’s obviously unclear if all of these will work and if the game will be any good, but in the meantime, fans are tearing down every frame of the 15 minutes broadcast on Sunday during the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase on Sunday night.
In the footsteps of space conquest?
And after observation, a rather interesting theory that concerns our blue planet. Everything starts from the end of the presentation, when the question of the size of the universe was addressed. We first saw a planet, then a system, then a part of the explorable universe. At that time the players saw Alpha Centauri, but also SOL. However, this name is that of the solar system, in which we find our planet. In addition, some gameplay images suggest what could be the Martian soil.
The game is set in 2330, so things will have changed, but several community members feel it’s possible that we can visit the Earth, the red planet, possibly the Moon and that we come across items sent by space agencies earthy, like Easter eggs. An image, which appears very briefly, even suggests that we will come across the route of Curiosity, the rover sent to Mars in 2003and whose mission ended in 2018 after a storm.
