Bethesda Visits SpaceX to Get Inspiration for Starfield

Bethesda SoftWorks first teased their space adventure RPG, Starfield, in 2018. Fans saw the game’s first teaser trailer at E3 2021, followed by an actual gameplay trailer at Bethesda and Xbox E3 showcase 2022. Starfield is another original RPG from the studio who is loved for its classic RPGs like Skyrim and Fallout series.

The hype around the game is so massive that the devs have already delayed it three times to deliver the best game on par with their iconic space RPG Skyrim. And Xbox chief Phil Spencer recently revealed that he is satisfied with the delay in the release of Starfield as he does not want to put pressure on the developers and wants to make Bethesda SoftWorks feel supported by their new boss Microsoft. 

Well, if the stakes for the game were not high enough already, the studio has taken things to the next level. In a podcast, Todd Howard, Starfield’s director and executive producer revealed that Bethesda has visited the SpaceX HQ and met Elon Musk to get inspiration for their own space adventure.

Furthermore, Todd Howard appreciated the ambitions and goals of SpaceX, and according to him, he felt inspired and awed by the dedication and commitment of SpaceX. It is an exciting moment for a Starfield fan who has been waiting for the game for a long time. As this just puts things to a whole new level and hints that the experience in Starfield will be raw and real. 

The hype for Starfield is already insane due to the previous track record of Bethesda SoftWorks with RPGs, and Starfield is claimed to be their most grand and expansive RPG yet. Which has skyrocketed the hopes of the fans.

It would be safe to assume that space adventure RPG fans who consider Skyrim a revolutionary game will be stunned by Starfield from the same studio. It will be interesting to see how the game turns out.
