Bethesda Announces Single-Player Space Epic ‘Starfield’

Bethesda Game Studios has confirmed “Starfield,” a new single-player space epic. It’s the developer’s first new original video-game series in two and a half decades.

In June of last year, a widely circulated claim, which is said to have originated on 4chan, alleged that Bethesda would reveal a game called “Starfield” at E3 2017. The project was described as a “long-rumored game that transplants the publisher’s role-playing foundation onto a sci-fi setting.” So, as it turns out, sometimes the rumors making the rounds on anonymous message boards aren’t entirely without merit. However, we still know very few confirmed details about the game.

The 2018 Bethesda E3 Showcase took place Sunday, June 10, at 6:30 p.m. PT. The publisher premiered its full “Fallout 76” trailer during Xbox’s briefing on Sunday.

The Electronic Entertainment Expo kicked off Sunday with the Xbox E3 2018 Briefing at 1 p.m. PT; you can watch the broadcast live here. The presser is being held at the Microsoft Theater across the street from the main event area. This year’s E3 takes place this week, from June 12 to June 14, at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Twitch’s official coverage of the event began in earnest Sunday afternoon.
