I think Starfield is going to be huge in terms of hype and popularity. Everything that I've learned about it so far indicates to me that everyone is going to want to play this game at some point in time. It seems like Bethesda is going to give us a slow but steady content drip. And I think that's all to the good. I would hate to be spoiled on the grander parts of the story. I definitely suspect we'll get some more information about character creation and some background information on how we start off in the game.

I think it would be really cool if Starfield had a unique opening act based on decisions that players make in character creation. Something similar to what BioWare did with Dragon Age: Origins. Each class had a unique origin story that briefly setup your characters background before you were kind of released into the world onto the main quest.

I can't wait to hear more info on Starfield! In the meantime, I'll be sure to add new posts as more infor and other interesting commentary is released. Be sure to check back often.
