Todd Howard has spoken about how Starfield won’t let players run out of ship fuel while they’re journeying through deep space. With a team more than twice the size of Fallout 76‘s, all eyes are on Bethesda’s upcoming epic sci-fi RPG, which represents the first new intellectual property from the studio in two and a half decades. As such, so many people are excited for what’s in store for them, and while fans wait for a finalized launch day, some details about the game are being drip fed.

GAMERANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

Bethesda games are known for their step-out moments, and there’s no telling how Starfield will present its own. The game is set in 2310, taking place 50 years after the Colony War, and will give players the opportunity to explore over 100 star systems and discover more than 1,000 planets. The studio has said it began development just after the release of Fallout 4 in 2015, and since then, there have been a number of teasers, as well as some gameplay footage shown off at this year’s Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase.

As for further information about what players can anticipate, a recent interview with the studio’s director Todd Howard responded to a question about whether the game is hard or soft science fiction. He revealed that the ships in Starfield will require fuel, though Howard said that the team was concerned about gamers running out of fuel mid-flight, which would effectively bring play to a halt and feel “punitive.” With this in mind, the game’s grav drive and amount of fuel in a ship will limit how far players can go at once to prevent them being stranded. He admits this might seem “a little odd,” but it’s a decision the studio is evidently sticking to, though Howard mentioned that there might be a mod or update later to remove the limit. In the video, the discussion begins at around 2:00.

Given the reputation of the name Bethesda and the success of the Elder Scrolls and modern Fallout series, though the games themselves are notorious for bugs, there’s definitely a lot of hype around Starfield. In fact, it’s easily considered to be one of the most anticipated games of this generation, up there with God of War Ragnarok and GTA 6.

Currently, there’s no exact release date for the game, but a leak suggests Starfield could be coming later than expected. The developer already had to delay things. Initially due out next month, the game has since been pushed back to 2023 because Bethesda wanted to keep working on it to improve the experience. It was suggested the new window will be sometime in Q1 of next year, but the latest rumor is that Starfield could be coming in Q2 or even Q3. That’s not been confirmed obviously, but if it is being delayed again, no doubt many will be disappointed about having to wait longer, but it will hopefully be worth it in the end.
