News on Starfield has dried up a little bit as of late, but Bethesda has now treated us to a brand-new deep dive on the game's quest system, which builds on what came before in both Skyrim and Fallout 4. In the video above, developer Will Shen takes us through some of the game's big quest-related features, while discussing what the team is aiming for with its Starfield storyline.
It sounds like Bethesda is taking a more open-ended approach with Starfield's main quest, especially when it comes to factions and your interactions with them.
"One of the early things we decided on was making sure the main quest gives you a little bit of a tour of the settled systems and all of the major players there, so that we can give you a taste of what they [the factions] are going to be up to."
"We also discussed really early on, like 'okay, do we make some of the factions in conflict with each other', and we decided we really want to make sure that you can play through all the faction lines independently of each other."
"This time around we were like 'we really want the stories to be a little more personal'. You're influencing the direction of where this faction is going to go."
The new ViDoc doesn't provide much new gameplay unfortunately, but a fresh look at Starfield shouldn't be too far off. For now, Microsoft is still aiming for the first half of 2023 with Starfield's launch.
