Bethesda boss Todd Howard has spoken about the upcoming role-playing game Starfield, revealing some previously unknown details.
Howard was appearing at the Develop: Brighton conference on Monday when he made the new comments about Starfield. The director and executive producer confirmed that the space title will be an entirely single-player experience, with no multiplayer elements. He also spoke about how the developer was utilizing a procedural generation tool to create far larger environments than it has in games like Fallout 76 and Skyrim.
More important, though, was the information about the upgrades to the Creation Engine powering both Starfield and The Elder Scrolls VI. According to Howard, the engine should allow for improved rendering, animation, and artificial intelligence.
However, Howard did tell fans that they should not expect to see much in the way of marketing for Starfield any time soon. He revealed that the studio prefers to work on the actual game rather than promotional material, saying that “preparing trailers and demos and assets, they take time away from development and I’d rather just spend all that time focusing on the game.”
Starfield was first announced during a teaser trailer at E3 2018. There’s currently no information about when it will launch or what platforms it will be available on.
