Bethesda has released three new videos detailing locations from next year’s sci-fi role-player but there’s still no gameplay footage.

Starfield is still more than a year away and at this point in time we know almost nothing about it, other than it’s a sci-fi role-playing game played from a first or third person perspective.

Since the game is by the same studio behind Skyrim and Fallout it’s easy enough to imagine what it might be like, but in terms of hard facts there’s almost nothing… except for these three new videos describing major planets from the game.

There’s no in-game graphics featured, just concept art we’ve already seen, but one detail that stands out is that there doesn’t seem to be any sign of intelligent aliens.

The planet of Akila, which looks very much like a Wild West frontier town, apparently has a problem with alien creatures that are a ‘cross between a wolf and a velociraptor’ but there’s no indication that they’re intelligent or have a civilisation of their own.

Capital city New Atlantis is described as being home to all races, but the way it’s said seems to imply only humans, with again no sign of intelligent aliens.

Not that the game needs them at all but it’s an interesting design decision that few other science fiction games take.

It could be though that the aliens look more or less the same as humans, since the original inspiration for the game came from when Bethesda had the Star Trek licence back in the 2000s. So maybe a few funny foreheads and elongated ears is all you’ll get.

Starfield will launch on November 11, 2022 for Xbox Series X/S and PC.
