Ahead of the Xbox/Bethesda E3 2021 showcase, a new trailer for Bethesda’s sci-fi RPG Starfield has arrived, and it shows a release date and details about platform exclusivity. The Starfield trailer was published on The Washington Post.
The trailer reveals that Starfield will launch on November 11, 2022, for Xbox and PC. The trailer did not include any mention of PlayStation.
We also learned that Starfield will be available on Game Pass, which is no surprise given that all of Microsoft’s exclusive games release on the subscription service.
The trailer was seemingly posted early; it is expected to be formally revealed during the Xbox/Bethesda briefing later today. Artwork for the game has also emerged ahead of the official announcement.
Additionally, The Washington Post published a “making of” feature with Todd Howard that shed some more light on Starfield. Howard told the publication, “Starfield is our first new universe in over 25 years. It’s a game we’ve dreamt of playing, and it’s only now that we have the hardware, the technology, and the experience to push our creative boundaries even further.”
He added: “Starfield is a next-generation role-playing game where you’ll be who you want, go where you want, experience our stories, and forge your own. More than that, Starfield is about hope, our shared humanity, and searching for the answers to life’s greatest mysteries.”
Starfield is in development at Bethesda Game Studios, the developer behind Skyrim and Fallout 4. The studio is now owned by Microsoft as part of the Xbox company’s $7.5 billion acquisition of Bethesda’s parent company, ZeniMax.
