Todd Howard took the stage to start proceedings at Gamescom’s Opening Night Live, where he spoke at length about Bethesda’s upcoming game, Starfield. Howard said how gamers have always dreamt of blasting into space and exploring the planets and though the studio has made the Fallout series and the Elder Scrolls series, Howard mentioned they always wanted to do something new. He went on to mention how the studio made Starfield where players can explore with complete freedom.


He went on to mention how the game starts off with an artifact and gamers will join a group of explorers that Howard called will look a lot like “NASA meets Indiana Jones” searching for more artifacts. He mentioned the story goes quite deep and there’s a lot left that’s not yet talked about which will surprise gamers. It was interesting of Howard to mention Indiana Jones, as he’s actually executive producing a game based on the iconic character.

As much as Todd Howard would love to speak about his future ventures, he mentioned his team back at Bethesda are currently fully involved in releasing Starfield, without any glitches. Howard says his mantra is that “great games are played, not made”. So, they have continued to play it, day in, and day out. Whether or not Starfield can push it forward in the role-playing genre, is a question for later, as Howard says he does not lose sleep over it. Howard mentioned how Starfield is still quite unique, and when it clicked, they realized they had missed a game like that for a long time.


Starfield releases globally on the 6th of September, which is edging ever so closer with each passing day.
