It’s been nearly a week since we got our first look at Starfield, Bethesda’s epic space RPG. This is the address that would have been at the top of my country 22 Most Anticipated Xbox Games of 2022 List if you are not late. Starfield will be an Xbox console exclusive, and will also launch on PC in the first half of 2023. As the title has been a first-party game from Xbox since Microsoft’s acquisition of Bethesda, Starfield will also launch in Game Pass on the first day.
To close the show at the Xbox Bethesda Game Showcase on June 12, Starfield has received a fifteen-minute gameplay reveal. With over 1,000 planets, many of which were procedurally created, the game was comparable to No Man’s Sky. This has led to numerous tweets, memes and drawings making fun of the topic.
There were even Sean Murray scenes!
Could this be the next big trend for social media:
PC Gamer also participated in the event.
No Man’s Sky isn’t the only game drawing comparisons to Starfield.
Despite the jokes, the display quality of the frames and graphics in the game demo has been a very hot topic on the internet.
Specifically, scenes showing close-ups of NPCs have come under a lot of criticism
From the interview during the Xbox Bethesda Showcase extended June 14th, we learned that there will be no smooth travel when landing on and taking off planets. This caused a lot of uproar online.
Even an independent game developer got in on the fun.
And if that wasn’t bad enough for the Xbox subsidiary, fans have been comparing Starfield to older games.
People were even talking about trees
HipHopGamer of radio station Hot 97 in New York City had some thoughts on the matter.
And after the shaky launch of Fallout 76 in 2018, some fans are worried.
But some at least can look at the lighter side of it all.
And the other game journalists just got in on the fun.
There was also a lot of love for Starfield.
Digital Foundry called it a “next-generation scene.”
In the end, it should be remembered that we are just beginning to get our first look at Starfield. The game won’t be released until the first half of 2023, so take this tweet tip.
The fact of the matter is that people will be talking about Starfield for years, even after launch. This is just the beginning and we expect Bethesda to reveal a lot more about the game in the coming months.
