Bethesda Game Studios’ design director Emil Pagliarulo reveals Starfield’s setting and delves into the factions that inhabit it.
Thanks to the new trailer, we get a glimpse of Starfield’s two biggest factions, the United Colonies and the Freestar Collective, as well as the organization we’re meant to be a part of: Constellation.
All the new Starfield story
Bethesda revealed it via the YouTube video above along with its blog post. According to the video, there are quite a few factions and enemies in the world around us.
The game is set in 2330, but 20 years before the game began, United Colonies and the Freestar Collective engaged in “The Bloody Colony War”. However, during the present, there is peace in The Settled Systems.
Of course, there are still threats, such as Ecliptic Mercenaries, Crimson Fleet Pirates, Violent Spacers, and Fanatical House Veroon Fanatics.
It has been explicitly stated that there will be “human” threats as opposed to alien threats, so I don’t know if we are actually going to see alien life in this game. It is possible that the discovery of alien life is a problem. central point of the plot.
I imagine we’ll find out more when we get closer to launch, when Starfield arrives exclusively on Xbox Series X | S and PC on November 11, 2022.
