Bethesda Unveils Animated Shorts, Expanding Starfield Universe

Bethesda has unleashed a delightful treat for Starfield fans, revealing three animated shorts that delve into the exciting lore of their upcoming game. After months of anticipation since the Starfield Direct event in June, the gaming world is buzzing with excitement once again!

Now, the recent animated shorts offer a tantalizing glimpse into the vast universe of Starfield. With a combined runtime of over eight minutes, each promo focuses on a different protagonist and showcases the unique wonders and dangers of Starfield’s 1000+ planets.

Diving into the first short, “Where Hope is Built,” we find ourselves in the heart of Akila City – the magnificent capital of the Freestar Collective. Surprisingly, this bustling metropolis hasn’t received much attention in previous Starfield promos. However, it’s clear that life in Akila City can be perilous, with raider attacks frequently interrupting the idyllic atmosphere. Brace yourself for an adventure unlike any other!

Prepare to be dazzled as we venture into “The Hand that Feeds,” set in Neon, a shimmering pleasure city on the Ocean Planet. Bethesda hinted early on that the cyberpunk genre heavily influences this neon-lit paradise, and it definitely shows. Neon’s unique setting on a giant fishing platform delivers a vibrant atmosphere reminiscent of an afloat version of BioShock’s Rapture. Get ready to explore the seedy underbelly of this dystopian wonderland, dominated by the mysterious Ryujin Industries.

Lastly, we soar “Supra Et Ultra,” Latin for “above and beyond.” This final promo tells the captivating tale of a courier pilot from the United Colonies. Seeking the thrill of intergalactic adventures beyond New Atlantis, our courageous pilot takes us on a journey through the settled systems. Although it may not reveal much about the game’s lore, it ignites our imagination, teasing us with the knowledge that the United Colonies’ capital is the ultimate dream destination within Starfield’s universe.

In addition to these breathtaking animated shorts, Bethesda thrilled fans with plenty of new gameplay footage during the Starfield Direct event. We gained insights into Starfield companions, skills, PC hardware requirements, and more. The anticipation for Starfield’s release on September 6 is reaching astronomical levels!

So mark your calendars, set your alarms, and prepare for an epic adventure of intergalactic proportions. Starfield is on the horizon, and it’s ready to transport us to a world beyond our wildest dreams!
