Starfield: release date, trailers, exclusivity, gameplay, and more

Starfield promises a fun space expedition to “answer man’s greatest mysteries”. This space meets sci-fi RPG comes from Bethesda, the same creator as The Elder Scrolls and Fallout series, as its first new IP in 25 years.

Naturally, Bethesda fans were excited. It doesn’t even matter that Starfield is still a mystery. This is clearly “role-playing game hardcore,” which is indeed what it says after Skyrim. However, as Bethesda releases news bytes everywhere, the available information is pieced together into a more cohesive picture of the story and gameplay.

Here’s everything you need to know about Starfield, including all the recent news and leaks.

Starfield release date

Starfield will be released on November 11, 2022, for Xbox Series X|S and PC. So even though Bethesda has set a release date ahead of time, fans still have a pretty long wait.

Microsoft first teased Starfield at E3 2018, then kept mum until it released a new trailer and an exact release date at E3 2021. Starfield is currently slated for release before The Elder Scrolls 6.

One way to add value to a service is through exclusivity, and acquiring an award-winning studio like Bethesda helps to do that. So it’s no surprise that Starfield is coming out as an Xbox exclusive.

Sony fans aren’t happy with Bethesda’s release of Microsoft exclusives. Bethesda vice president Pete Hines seemed sympathetic, saying he apologized but could do nothing about it. On the plus side, Bethesda executive producer Todd Howard said it’s “hard to imagine” The Elder Scrolls 6 being exclusive — but these things can change. All of Bethesda’s contracts with rivals such as Sony for Deathloop also remain unchanged.
