Bethesda fans have repeatedly wondered in recent days if they can also look forward to some news within Gamescom. And in the end, they really happened, albeit outside the main conference, as you might have expected. Specifically on Starfield. We have seen three approximately one-minute videos, which do not present the game in action, but represent three important places in this universe. They are demonstrated by design director Emil Pagliarulo and we will of course visit them in the game in the future.
The first destination is the capital of the United Colonies New Atlantis. We can look at the spaceport. The United Colonies are said to be the strongest military and political force in the game. People of all races and ethnicities live in this city. New Atlantis is meant to be a true reflection of the future of our world.
Another place we go is a city of pleasure called Neon. It was built by Xenofresh Corporation on a giant fishing platform in the water world. Originally they wanted to fish here, but then they discovered fish with psychotropic effects. They soon discovered that they made a lot more money selling drugs than fish. This drug is called Aurora and is only legal here. That’s why people come here to try it out, along with the other pleasures that Neon offers.
Akila is the capital of the Freestar Collective, a free confederation of three different star systems. The city is home to many different people, but they have one thing in common. He believes in the sanctity of personal freedom and individuality. Akilla is surrounded by a high wall because behind her is the deadly Ashta. These are extraterrestrial predators resembling a cross between a wolf and a velociraptor.
