Bethesda has released a new video for starfield which focuses on music and sound design.
In the video, audio director Mark Lampert and composer Inon Zur discuss the artistic process, how the score affects your experience, and more.
According to Lampert, in every Bethesda game, the theme song frames the title. The music team has always tried to “kind of weave it through,” and as you level up Starfield and discover new locations, the music will hint at the main tune.
“Starfield is the most ambitious project I’ve ever worked on,” Zur said. “It’s a huge game about a huge place, but more than anything, it boldly asks big questions — philosophical questions and important questions — that people don’t usually bother or dare to ask.”
The game is the first new universe from Bethesda Game Studios in 25 years and allows you to create any character you want and explore the game with a lot of freedom while striving to “solve mankind’s greatest mystery”.
Set in the year 2330, Starfield features three factions to interact with and the game’s focus is on the Colony War that was fought in 2310 between the Freestar Collective and the United Colonies. Peace reigns for now, but unrest between the two factions may boil over. As for enemies, expect plenty of human threats out there, including pirates, mercenaries, space travelers, and fanatical religious zealots.
Speaking of factions, you can join anyone you want and even join multiple factions – including the villains. Interacting with these factions and other NPCs will take a page out of The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion’s dialogue system.
You will have companions to hang out with on your journey, one of which is a robot named VASCO.
The game will be released exclusively for PC and Xbox Series X/S on November 11th and will be playable via Xbox Game Pass on day one. Here’s everything we know about the game so far.
