Bethesda’s Starfield just got its latest round of hype with the release of a host of never-before-seen concept art.
Amid its 10th anniversary celebration of Skyrim’s original release in 2011, the studio released a dozen plus one pieces of Starfield concept art as part of Skyrim’s fan celebration and concert, which featured the music of Inon Zur, who composed the scores for Fallout 76, Dragon’s Dogma, and Dragon Age 2.
What followed a performance of Skyrim’s music by the London Symphony Orchestra was a performance of the “Starfield Suite,” which is set to be the theme song for the upcoming space-themed RPG.
The music can be heard at 51:39 of the broadcast, seen below, which came alongside the appearance of Starfield concept art – just the stuff fans have been waiting for.
Reminiscent of science fiction paperbacks, the art showcases some of the many locations players will be able to visit in the upcoming game. It might be a while yet before prospective Starfield players see more of the game, with Bethesda director Todd Howard noting in a Reddit “Ask Me Anything” thread earlier this week that the next big drop will only happen sometime next year.
The locations include alien wilderness as well as urban cityscapes, including a dense market setting.
As previously reported on GameTalon, Starfield is set to be fully moddable, among other details revealed by the game’s lead developer.
Set for release on November 11, 2022, Starfield will be Bethesda Game Studios’ first major release since Fallout 4.
