Starfield drops new video about the "Settled Systems"

By Heidi Nicholas,
A new video for Starfield reveals a little more about the dangers we'll face in the "Settled Systems" in our work for the organisation known as Constellation.


Design director Emil Pagliarulo talks us through the "Settled Systems," an area of our solar system. Starfield is set in 2330, but Pagliarulo tells us that 2310 saw a colony war between The United Colonies and the Freestar Collective, and that it's only an "uneasy peace" that exists in the present. We'll apparently play as a new member of an organisation known as Constellation, which is "committed to uncovering the mysteries of the galaxy." Pagliarulo doesn't expand on our role with Constellation, but does describe a few of the dangers we'll come across in the Settled Systems, such as mercenaries, spacers, and pirates.

It's a brief look at one of Bethesda's most anticipated games, and gives a good look at some concept art for Starfield as well. It's the most information we've had on the game since Microsoft and Bethesda announced that Starfield will launch exclusively for Xbox Series X|S and Windows 10 in November 2022, and it gives us plenty of details to mull over while we wait for new information. What do you think of the new video? Have you come up with any theories? Let us know in the comments!
