Bethesda's Starfield trailer revealed ahead of Microsoft's E3 showcase, coming Nov. 11, 2022

We finally got a new look at Starfield at this year's E3.

The last time we heard about Starfield, Bethesda's upcoming sci-fi epic, it was E3 2018. Back then all we saw was brief teaser, but now, three years later at E3 2021, we finally got a closer look at Starfield in action. Just before Microsoft's Xbox showcase, the Washington Post published a trailer and a short behind-the-scenes video

The game's release date was listed as Nov. 11, 2022, which was confirmed when Microsoft opened its E3 event with the same trailer


Starfield likely has a lot in common with classics like Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Fallout 4 as it's expected to be an open world RPG, but the space/sci-fi setting is a new one for Bethesda. In the new trailer, little is seen beyond an astronaut preparing to take flight, with a voiceover talking about humanity's "final journey," as part of an organization called Constellation. 

It's set for release on Xbox Series X, Series S, Cloud Streaming and PC on Nov. 11, 2022, according to the trailer, and it will be available to Xbox Game Pass subscribers at the same time.
