‘Starfield’ Announced By Bethesda At E3 2018, First New IP In 25 Years (VIDEO)
Bethesda’s showcase at E3 contained the likes of established franchises such as a new Wolfenstein game and extensive coverage of Fallout 76, but the developer took the time to announce a brand new IP. After much anticipation, Bethesda unveiled Starfield, a mysterious single-player game set in the boundless environment of space.
Starfield is touted as the developer’s first wholly new franchise in 25 years, and will take advantage of next-generation technology. Following rumors of the game’s existence for weeks, we got our first look at the title in a short trailer from E3 2018, which shows a spacecraft disappearing into outer space. Check it out below:
What Starfield could be about or how it will play is still up in the air. The game’s title suggests an interstellar adventure of some sort, and it wouldn’t be outside the realm of possibility to expect some RPG elements akin to the Elder Scrolls series. We’ll just have to wait for more information to know for sure, but the possibilities seem exciting endless.
With Bethesda’s showcase now complete, the full scope of the developer’s future is now announced and there’s plenty to get hyped over. There’s the arrival of creepy new DLC for Prey, a hellish new Doom game, and the epic reveal of The Elder Scrolls VI on the horizon.
