Starfield Announced - Bethesda's "Next Generation" RPG

New Starfield info from a Todd Howard interview.

TL;DR -

Single player game. No MP component planned.
Will be on Game Pass day 1.
But it's not coming out any time soon and may be subject to additional delays.

  • Starfield is a singleplayer, no multiplayer aspects.
    [*]A focus on procedural generation during level design confirmed for Starfield and TES:VI
    • This is a tool for developers to create massive landmass and does not mean the land will be randomly generated in real time like No Man's Sky, meaning your game will look the exact same as everyone else. This is simply an engine tool to create larger worlds, so expect Starfield (planets?) to be much larger than Fallout 76's map, which is already four times bigger than Skyrim. YOUR ELDER SCROLLS/STARFIELD MAP WILL LOOK THE EXACT SAME AS EVERYONE ELSE, THIS DOES NOT MEAN THAT THE MAP WILL BE RANDOMLY GENERATED.
    [*][*]**Huge major overhaul to the Creation Engine - larger than the jump from Morrowind to Oblivion ("**when people see the results, hopefully they'd be as happy as we are.")
    • Rendering
    • Animation
    • Artificial Intelligence & Pathing
    • Procedural Generation
    • And more areas.
    [*][*]“It’s going to be a while” until we see Starfield, the release can be subject to delays etc. so he really doesn’t feel comfortable talking about it yet. EDIT: Todd said the same exact thing one year before the release of Fallout 4. 2021 gang! Thanks /u/fags343 for pointing that out.
    • He doesn't want to reveal Starfield earlier and just release teasers until the eventual release like Cyberpunk.
    [*][*]NPCs will play a large role in future games, cities will be expansive and large compared to past games, etc.
    [*]Will be on Game Pass from Day 1 alongside ES:VI.
    [*]Bethesda will continue to support mod support in the future.
    [*]Amount of developers are at least 4x - 5x larger than they were when they worked on Skyrim and Fallout 4. Starfield is going to be big.
    • Bethesda Games Studio Dallas, Maryland and Montreal are working on Starfield.
    • Bethesda Games Austin is in charge of Fallout 76's post-development with the Brotherhood of Steel expansion update coming this December.
    [*]
Edit: Clarified procedural generation part to avoid misinformation. Edit #2: Added additional info.

Terrains in some of the existing open world games (Horizon: Zero Dawn, for example) were populated in this manner. Would save a lot of dev time for a game that spans across multiple planets (probaby how Starfield is structured).

The release date is way too far off ... I thought for sure this would either be Q4 21 or Q1 22 at most.

I dont know why do studios show these movie trailers of a game that we know they are already working on for quite some time now. Either show us a proper gameplay reveal or dont show anything at all. Chalo at least the game had a release date though.

This wasn't impressive, but that's probably because they didn't show anything that matters. Though given the devs, a good RPG can come out of this one. It's a long way off, so they'll probably take their time before they reveal more.

    Steam patched region changing more or less from what i know, only way u can successfully change now is by using a debit card from the country u wanna change too. There might be some prepaid cards from turkey on the internet that u could use. Otherwise the best bet is using a good vpn to make a new account in the region u want and then use use gift cards to buy games.

    Some of the most popular options include NordVPN & ExpressVPN. But you can search for some other cheaper option if you prefer.
