With anticipation growing for Bethesda‘s upcoming project Starfield, the American developer has now launched a new short-form docuseries called Into the Starfield discussing how the studio has evolved over the years and the creative process behind the game.
Led by game director Todd Howard, studio director Angela Browder and art director Matt Carafano, the trio discuss everything from why they make video games to why the studio decided to dive into the dimension of space for its next big title. The seven-minute clip also showcases a series of in-game cinematics and concept art, giving gamers a rare glimpse into what they can look forward to in 2022.
“I think the one thing people underestimate about video games is that people think it’s just playtime, but I always say that the one thing video games can give you that nothing else in entertainment can is that feeling of pride,” says Howard. “Even though we want to make a game that is very big and very long and you can play for all of those years, it’s all the paths you didn’t take that make it special to you, that you feel like when you finish that quest, you’ve accomplished something that week. People who love video games can say ‘What’d you do today? I saved the world.’”
Elsewhere in gaming, Halo Infinite has dropped a live-action trailer ahead of its campaign release.
