Bethesda released the game Starfield on Wednesday, September 6 as its latest bet in the action RPG and fiction segment. Published by Microsoft, it aims to increase the number of subscribers to the Xbox Game Pass, in addition to targeting future awards.

Does Redmond’s giant’s new AAA game deliver what this Bethesda’s game promises? What are its highlights? The Tech Basic experienced it over the past few days and details it for you in this analysis.

History of Starfield

Starfield’s story takes place in the year 2330, when space travel was already a reality for humans, leading to the depopulation of Earth. Nevertheless, it is amid the exploration of a mine that the plot begins

The main character of the game is a worker from Argos Extractors. The company focuses on profiting through the extraction of high-value materials. During his first task, the employee comes across a floating ore, which sets the entire story in motion from that point forward.

Contact with the resource leaves the protagonist unconscious, with his memories forgotten. From then on, it’s possible to customize his appearance and all visual characteristics. There is a wide range of options, from body type to the presence of scars or tattoos on the face.

After a shootout against space pirates, a man named Barrett invites the main character to join the Constellation – a group of galaxy explorers. He then lends his spaceship to travel through planets, where he will gather more information about that found ore until he unravels the whole mystery.

Starfield Gameplay

Despite being an action RPG, Starfield features a blend of styles that allows for greater customization of the user’s experience. It’s possible to go through dialogues, where your response will determine the course of the game, or engage in shooting moments against opponents.

Another interesting point applied to the gameplay of this game is the alternation between camera perspectives. You can start in first person and switch to third person as you wish.

Not to mention the ability to explore different worlds on visited planets during travels, and the simulator elements when commanding the Frontier ship through space. By the way, the ships are an essential part of the experience. From the improvements that can be made to the possibility of “clearing out” the inventory by leaving some items in it.

Another important point is that the different skills are selected directly when customizing the character, through the Background. This is when you choose a kind of “memory” that defines the protagonist’s specialties, whether in physical combat, scientific abilities, or exploration capability.

As the campaign progresses, you can develop and enhance skills in other areas. The game provides a skill point system to unlock more abilities as you progress.

Here we miss a multiplayer mode. The level of customization and the varied mechanics present in this game leaves a gap due to the lack of the possibility to enjoy the campaign with a friend, or have more dynamic modes.

Graphics and Soundtrack

The visual beauty of Bethesda’s Starfield is evident from its very first moment. The details inside the initial mine give a glimpse into worlds full of high-quality textures and details in space, on the most different planets, and on the characters themselves.

It’s worth noting that the developer explored the Creation Engine 2 for this game – an evolution of what we saw in Skyrim. As a result, we have buildings, skies, and mountains with a pronounced touch of realism.

It’s a shame that Microsoft and Bethesda have limited the experience to a 30fps rate in all its versions. Here, we tested it on the Xbox Series S and felt that there could be, at least, a “performance” or balanced mode that would allow for smoother gameplay – something that is missed in FPS moments – without sacrificing so much quality.

Although some visual bugs have been noticed by internet users on social media, we did not perceive any graphical issues during our tests.

The sound part also proves to be one of Starfield’s highlights. The presence of an original soundtrack for the game makes the atmosphere much more immersive and complements what we saw in the visuals.

Starfield Review Conclusion

Bethesda’s Starfield is a promising game in all aspects. It has a complex yet easily understandable story. The context is conveyed directly and objectively, making the plot engaging from the beginning and encouraging progress.

The dynamic and personalized mechanics allow you to choose how you want to enjoy each situation. You can use first-person during shootouts and switch to third-person in The Beauty of a Space Journey, for example.

Not to mention the combination of high-quality graphics and original soundtrack, which enhance the player’s immersion and provide a more realistic atmosphere in the universe created by the developer.

But not all of these qualities make this a perfect game. The absence of a multiplayer mode limits the gameplay and doesn’t expand horizons for greater longevity.

In turn, the restriction of the frame rate also doesn’t push the visuals to their ideal in this game. Despite the focus on quality over performance, the lack of balance results in a less fluid experience than desired, especially in first-person shooting moments.
