Starfield Director: Every Sci-fi Movie/TV Show Has Inspired Development In Some Way
The Design Director for Bethesda’s upcoming action role-playing game, Starfield, has revealed that every prominent sci-fi movie and TV show out there has inspired the game’s development in some manner.
Emil Pagliarulo, the Design Director for Starfield, took to Twitter to reveal that the game’s development has taken inspiration from just about every sci-fi movie and TV show out there. He gave the example of classics such as Space: 1999, Cowboy Bebop, Event Horizon, Silent Running, Star Wars, The Expanse, Star Trek, Aliens, and Battlestar Galactica.
Pagliarulo specifically highlighted the movie Prospect as one that has the Starfield vibe. He refrained from going into further specifics so as to avoid heading into spoiler territory.
The Starfield Design Director mentioned that the game will give players the opportunity to infiltrate the Crimson Fleet as a “space cop” and report back to their superiors, and suggested that fans ought to check out the Donnie Brasco movie while they wait for the game’s launch on September 6, 2023.
Previously, it was reported that Starfield, has been rated ‘Restricted’ by the Australian Classification Board. In addition, the listing states that the game will feature interactive use of drugs. The classification also notes that Starfield contains “moderate impact” language and themes, “strong impact” violence, “very mild impact” nudity, and no depiction of sex. “Interactive drug use” is listed as the primary reason for the ‘Restricted’ rating. The Industry Details section of the listing states that Starfield is recommended for players of age 18 and above, with ‘interactive drug use’ highlighted in the Consumer Advice category.
Starfield is set in an area that extends outward from the Solar System for approximately 50 light-years called The Settled Systems. The Colony War, which took place in the year 2310, was a conflict between the United Colonies and Freestar Collective, the game’s two biggest factions.
