These expectations were somewhat tempered by the May reveal of the game’s delay to 2023. However, the Bethesda Games Showcase gave an in-depth review of the game, which helped to rekindle the flame, despite the mixed reactions.

However, some fans question whether Starfield will arrive in the 2023 timeframe, as Bethesda’s Q and A video suggested.

What do you think about Starfield right now?

This thread is part of ResetEra ‘s discussion. It started with Biosnake posting the link to the video. You can also see screenshots of the game footage contained in it.

Howard also touches Starfield’s inspirations (the 1984 Apple 2 game Sundog, and the 1977 pen-and-paper RPG Traveller) and discusses whether it will be hard SciFi. The video ends with a look into some of the game’s conversation mechanisms.

“We just passed the 250k line, and so that’s quite a lot of dialogue. But we’ve gone through that and the impact is there.” Howard says. A graphic illustrating Starfield’s dialogue will show how it dwarfs both Fallout 4 & Skyrim. Howard adds: “It feels almost like part of the dialogue. But you’re spending points to persuade them.”

Howard also discusses the traits system that the game will use. As Ken Allsop pointed out, it appears to include a trait which will ensure that you are followed around the cosmos and adored by Oblivion’s interstellar counterpart.

The main conversation that the video seems to have been sparked in ResetEra is about when the game will be released. Biosnake has set up a poll asking users when they expect the game to arrive.

Surprisingly though, the poll currently leads by Fall/Autumn 20,23. It has gathered 144 of the 470 total votes and is leading over Spring 2023 (103) and Summer 2023 (83) respectively.

Although they were far behind these choices in the poll, the poll’s Winter 2023/2024 and Winter 2024 received decent votes (68, and 72, respectively).

These results could be interpreted as evidence of a loss of trust between Bethesda and some players, with comments such as Crax’s saying that “Todd can tell all the lies he likes.” This could be seen as a sign of a potential disconnect.
