Someone claiming to be a “leaker” at Bethesda Game Studios has leaked a lot of information about their for E3 and even post E3. This includes information about Bethesda’s new IP known as Starfield which is a Sci-fi RPG set in space. According to this leaker, Bethesda plan on announcing this game at E3 along with Falloout 4 VR and also says it will release this year. He also states that the Bethesda games are in a single universe with Fallout being the beginning, the middle being Starfield and Skyrim being the far future for the timeline.
“I’m a leaker at Bethesda and I wanted to layout their plans for the future for you guys and give you some pre E3 leaks.
Firstly i’m speaking only about Bethesda game studios here not the publisher.
There will be a few announcements at E3 one is a new major title from Bethesda themselves aswell.
The two Major announcements are Fallout 4 VR and Starfield.
They are working on Skyrim VR aswell but they aren’t sure if they are going to show it yet since they don’t want to take the light away from Fallout 4 VR or Starfield.
Onto Starfield. The game has actually been in conceptual stages since around Fallout 3’s release. It went into pre production officially very low tier pre production after Skyrims Release. After Fallout 4’s release it went into full pre production and after all the DLC was out they sped into full development.
The game is going to be a sci fi open world RPG in typical bethesda first person fashion. Its going to feature 5-10 races there’s still some debate on what should and shouldn’t go in and takes place in the Fallout universe just so far in the future and far away from earth that it’ll only be mentioned in hints. This is part of an ongoing planned interconnected universe of every Bethesda franchise. They gave hints of this by implying the Brotherhood of Steel created nirnroot in Fallout 4. They’re getting a little wacky with the lore and using “Elder Scrolls time wounds” to justify lore inconsistencies.
Basically Fallout is the beginning of the timeline, Starfield is the middle, and Elder Scrolls is Far Future.
The game will feature space travel and hub worlds aswell as RNG worlds. Its meant to be a test into more sandboxy/minecraft ish AAA thing but with Bethesda gameplay and still actual designed worlds/quests/etc.
They have another Fantasy game of a famous franchise in the works. Game of Thrones and preproduction Elder Scrolls VI and conceptual for Elder Scrols VII which is Todds Magnum Opus. “
Like all the leaks we take this with a grain of salt but if true, Bethesda has a lot of cool things in store for us. As for Starfield it seems like a competitor for Mass Effect but will it be any good? Only time will tell.
