Starfield is the first new series released from Bethesda Game Studios in twenty-five years, and has been described as "Skyrim in space" by Starfield Director Todd Howard.
Starfield is an action role-playing title set in the year 2330 and in an area that is approximately fifty light years wide called The Settled Systems. Like all Bethesda RPG's, players will take the role of a customizable character who is a member of the Constellation, a group of space explorers. Players are encouraged to explore space or join long-standing quests such as whether or not Christ or God came from the stars. Like Skyrim, Starfield can be played from a first or third-person perspective.
