Starfield is Bethesda’s first significant release following the studio’s acquisition by Xbox in 2020. This game holds a special place in the hearts of both gamers and business insiders.

Adding to its significance, “Starfield” is an exclusive offering for the Xbox Series X and Series S consoles and Windows PCs.

It’s not like we were expecting it to be available on platforms like Reel Crypto, but the decision to make “Starfield” exclusive to these platforms has stirred some controversy, sparking debates among the gaming community.

You’ll know how this game goes if you’ve played Pandemic Train. As you boot up Starfield, you’re immediately thrust into a realm where your choices shape your journey. Here’s how you, the gamer, can navigate this expansive space adventure.

Crafting Your Character: Your first step in Starfield is creating your character. Picture yourself as a scoundrel from the dystopian alleys of Neon, a city rife with corporations, gambling, and gangs. Or perhaps you’d prefer a protagonist with affluent parents or one who follows a mysterious galactic snake god. The possibilities are vast, with dozens of unique origins to choose from.

Your character’s background and skills aren’t just cosmetic; they shape your gameplay and interaction with others in the game. As you traverse this universe, your choices influence conversations and the paths you can take.

Your Personal Starship: Early in your adventure, you receive a spaceship, which you can customize extensively. This ship isn’t just a vehicle; it’s a personal statement, a mobile base reflecting your style and exploration approach.

Charting Your Course: Starfield’s Galaxy is your new home. It’s up to you to unravel the central mystery involving ancient artifacts or chart a different path. You could become a notorious space pirate, a culinary explorer, or a pioneer, building settlements on new worlds. Your journey is as boundless as the stars themselves.

The Narrative: In my 40 hours with Starfield, I found the story to start slowly. While it may appear as a first-person shooter, the narrative delves deep into themes of faith, atheism, morality, and existence. Bethesda has expertly woven a story that, like Skyrim and the modern Fallout games, is compelling and filled with discovery.

A New Kind of Open World: Unlike Bethesda’s previous titles, which featured mostly contiguous open worlds, Starfield introduces a galaxy map with distinct systems and planets, connected by warp travel and punctuated by loading screens. This segmentation creates a sense of vastness and isolation in space, a departure from the seamless environments of Skyrim and Fallout.

Rich In-Game Universe: The Settled Systems of Starfield are a treasure trove of history and stories. Every moment is an opportunity for a new story, from spontaneous encounters with other spacefarers to urgent escapes from pirate fleets. The game’s worlds have alien life and activities, offering endless exploration and interaction possibilities.

Replayability: Bethesda has incorporated elements into Starfield that encourage replaying the main story, though these are best discovered firsthand to avoid spoilers.
