It’s a game we’ve dreamt of playing, and it’s only now that we have the hardware, the technology, and the experience to push our creative boundaries even further. Starfield is a next-generation role-playing game where you’ll be who you want, go where you want, experience our stories, and forge your own. More than that, Starfield is about hope, our shared humanity, and searching for the answers to life’s greatest mysteries.”
