‘Starfield’ developer hints at players being able to explore space itself

“It is a blank canvas and a massive playground"

A member of the Starfield development team has seemingly confirmed spaceflight will be possible in the upcoming action RPG.

Despite the game having a November 11 release date, not too much is currently known about Starfield. However, in a new interview, Bethesda Game Studios’ audio director Mark Lampert has seemingly confirmed that players will be able to explore the vastness of space and not just the planets that make up Starfield.

Lampert starts by explaining how “the music is the companion to the player in the single player game,” and that in creating it, “our sense of scale had to be totally readjusted” because as well as “making a game on a planetary surface as we have done before (they now) have these very vast distances against this black, starry background” to soundtrack.

As of right now, Starfield is coming to Game Pass in November this year as one of the big Xbox holiday releases, with fans expecting to hear more about the game in the summer.
