Starfield is set in the year 2330
The new one space opera of the team responsible for The Elder Scrolls and Fallout takes place in the year 2330, three hundred years after the present, “in a relatively small area of the Milky Way, an area that extends about 50 light years from our solar system”Explains Emil Pagliarulo, Design Director at Bethesda Game Studios.
Some 20 years before the start of the game a great war took place, the Colonial War, an encirclement that confronted the two great factions of the Colonized Systems: the United Colonies against him Freestar Collective. This clash resulted in an impossible peace, although right now both remain in the rear.
The threats looming in the confines of Colonized Systems
Pagliarulo assures that “there are a lot of threats out there”, from Pirates of the Crimson Fleet until religious fanatics of House Va’ruun. Too ecliptic mercenaries, obstacles that players will have to deal with and that will enrich the lore of Starfield. Now, what exactly is the role of the player in the title? As Pagliarulo explains, we will be new recruits from the Constellation organization, who is immersed in the mission to discover the mysteries of the entire galaxy.
With territories already confirmed such as Akila, Neon and New Atlantis, the latter the capital of the United Colonies, the most militarized and powerful, little by little we are learning more details of the vast universe of Starfield.
Starfield is still in development and its premiere is scheduled for the next November 11, 2022 on Xbox Series and PC; from day one on Xbox Game Pass.
