The more we learn about Starfield, the more its delay hurts. After Bethesda director Todd Howard brought Starfield’s sheer size to light, he went on to explain more details about the upcoming action-adventure RPG that makes it the most ambitious project by the developer ever.
We all know how well-known Bethesda titles are for featuring enormous cities that brim with activities, are vibrant, and have no shortages of missions. However, with Starfield, the developer plans to kick it up a notch from here.
It’s easily our most ambitious game ever. Like our previous games, it’s an epic role-playing game where you get to be who you want and go where you want, but this time, you’ll be exploring spaceTodd Howard
Talking to IGN, director Todd Howard claimed that out of the four cities that Starfield packs, New Atlantis is the biggest city that Bethesda has ever created. New Atlantis is the capital city of the United Colonies and is more significant than any other city the studio has ever made, including Skyrim and Fallout.
It has all the services you would expect, and you can work on your ship there, the factions touch that. But that’s also the headquarters for Constellation, which is the faction that you join that is the last group of space explorers – kind of this NASA-meets-Indiana Jones-meets-The League of Extraordinary Gentleman [group].Todd Howard
Howard also added that Starfield’s main story would be longer than what Bethesda enthusiasts are used to, spanning over 30-40 hours. With most of the mission’s start and stop points found in New Atlantis, it looks like the capital city will be buzzing with myriad activities.
Many fans were worried about Starfield’s mammoth size as they felt that adding 1000+ planets could make the game appear devoid of life and diversity. But with Howard soon interpreting how detailed and meaningful New Atlantis is, fans must be hoping for the rest of the cities and planets to be just as compelling.
Starfield is a space exploration game developed by the popular video game company, Bethesda. The game’s teaser launched in 2018, while the gameplay trailer came out in 2022.
Starfield will take players to the deepest depth of space. Being a Sci-Fi game, one can expect it to be brimming with stupendous weapons and supersonic spacecraft while offering a magical tone that is enough to get lost in.
