Sunday’s Xbox showcase was light on news, but showed plenty of games due out in the next year – culminating in Bethesda’s long-awaited space RPG, Starfield
Microsoft saved the best ’til last at its big Xbox showcase on Sunday, closing the online event with an extended first look at Bethesda’s long-awaited sci-fi role-playing adventure Starfield.
The demo focused on a sequence early in the game where the player’s ship lands on a desolate volcanic moon, Kreet, and a mech is sent out to investigate. An abandoned search facility is quickly discovered, but a fight with pirate squatters ensues. It’s the first time fans have seen the game’s combat, with its mix of third- and first-person viewpoints, and fast-paced shoot-outs.
