If you already wanted to play Starfield, the 40-minute event that we saw after the Xbox Games Showcase of the Summer Game Fest 2023 made the 79 days left until its release seem like the very eternity. And although there is still a long way to go, a lucky man has had access to the video game for an hour and has shared some very promising first impressions.
It was a IGN journalist who has been able to play Starfield for an hour on Xbox Series X and shared everything he could on the IGN Games channel. The video has a duration of 1 hours and 18 minutes and is divided by chapters.
If you don’t want/can see the whole video, our colleagues at 3DJuegos have shared the Twitter thread by HazzadorGaminwhich summarizes in 4 tweets of the most important points. The first thing he points out is that it looks great and that “People will be playing Starfield for years…yeah, no kidding“.
He also points out that there are many options for personalize the experiencethat combat is fun thanks to the effects of gravity (among other things), that fighting with an ax is a lot of fun, that it feels like a mix of No Man’s Sky, fallout and skyrim; and that the main city feels like a mix between Oblivion and mass effect. It has many NPCs and confirms that there will be a subway.
Finally, he points out that Starfield It feels really deep and that both the missions and the locations have been made with care and by hand. This means that Bethesda would not have repeated the mistakes of making missions too repetitive.
Starfield launches on September 6, 2023 for Xbox Series X/S and PC, despite calls for it to come out on PS5, and it looks set to be an incredibly large, polished experience that we’ll be playing for years to come. Now it only remains to wait to see to what extent all this is true.
