Starfield Is Twice The Size Of Bethesda’s Biggest Game, Story Emphasis On Philosophy
Starfield is at least twice the size of the biggest game Bethesda Game Studios has ever made, claims the game’s composer.
Speaking during an interview, Starfield composer Inon Zur revealed that it is Bethesda Game Studios’ biggest project yet in terms of size. It’s not hard to imagine, given that the game spans across over 100 star systems and over 1000 different planets to explore.
Zur also shared some interesting thoughts regarding the game’s story. According to him, Starfield is a deep and philosophical game that will consume a lot of your existence. While he doesn’t think it will make you a changed person, he believes that playing through its story will give you a deeper perspective to your whole being.
According to Zur, ideas like having the courage to ask questions, and to try and find their answers are at the core of Starfield. It’s more than just another shooter or another RPG, he claims. Zur states that Starfield’s story takes a very courageous step into a realm that is more philosophical. He adds that the game isn’t just about how it looks and how the gameplay is, despite both aspects being incredible. He finds that Starfield is all about its story, and your ability to write your own story within the framework of its narrative. It’s also about your ability to ask questions, seek relevant answers, and perhaps be able to reach them.
Starfield is an upcoming action role-playing video game developed by Bethesda Game Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks. In 2018, Bethesda made the official announcement of the game during its E3 press conference. The first new intellectual property created by Bethesda in more than 25 years, the game takes place in a space-themed setting. Starfield is slated to launch for Microsoft Windows and Xbox Series X/S in the first half of 2023.
