Starfield, the first game in a brand new series from Bethesda Game Studios, is coming to PC and Xbox in November and while that may seem to be a long way off yet, we're already excitedly preparing for the release. 

Update 12 May 2022: Bethesda has announced on Twitter that Starfield has been delayed until the first half of 2023. 

If you haven't heard about it yet, Starfield is going to be the debut entry in an entirely new franchise and marks the first single-player RPG released by BGS since Fallout 4 all the way back in 2015. The details of the new game world and story have not been fully revealed yet and we've been eagerly following the "Into The Starfield" video series as it teases more and more information about the upcoming title. 

What we do know is Starfield will be using an updated version of the Creation Engine which has been used to power Skyrim, Fallout 4 and Fallout 76 (which is in itself an evolution of the Gamebyro Engine used by older titles). Todd Howard has also confirmed in an AMA on Reddit that Starfield will have full mod support, which is great news for our community!

So what are we doing to prepare for Starfield? Glad you asked! We're slowly ramping up our efforts to create a community space for Starfield. This is comprised of a few parts:

  • Starfield Modding Discord - We could have simply added Starfield channels to our main server, but this time around we felt it would be far better to separate the Starfield discussion into its own server. There are already some interesting conversations happening there, including early planning of a Community Patch for the game. If you're interested in modding Starfield, please do check it out. 
  • Starfield Modding Forums - We've created a new forum category where you can talk about the game, modding or even share your ideas for mods.  
  • Starfield Modding Wiki - While it's pretty barebones right now, we plan to use the Modding.wiki site for Starfield to serve as a hub for important information about modding which would otherwise be lost to obscurity in forum posts, Discord servers or Reddit threads. 
  • Starfield Game Section - Coming November 2022. We'll be opening the doors on the site section to share your mods, images, videos and collections for Starfield.
That's not all, we're also actively engaging with our friends at Bethesda to learn more about the game and get more modding-specific information that we can share with mods authors, tool developers and the community to allow us to work together to create a modding community that could rival the ones for their previous games. 

Are you as excited as we are for Starfield? What kinds of mods would you like to see? Join the discussion on the forums. 

Don't forget to wishlist Starfield on Steam or join Constellation on Bethesda's website to stay updated.

The expectations of many people will be considerably lowered after F76...   But my feeling (based on literally nothing, just my feeling) is that they are going to completely knock this one out of the park.

That being said, I'm always the "wait and see" kinda guy.  I'll be waiting a year or so before checking it out (for patches, DLCs, mods etc).

Let's hope this one will be less crash-y than skyrim!

Yeah my expectations couldn't be lower after Fallout 76, that said they have been making the right noises about going back to what they used to do well, if they follow through on that we could all be pleasantly surprised.

It's probably a bit blasphemous to say it, but I am honestly not intrigued about Starfield. However, I would absolutely love to see what has changed with the Creation Kit! That image with the monitors in it looks so achingly familiar to me. :wub:
