Factions and reflections

This structure will be similar to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, although they will delve into some more momentous issues. According to the creative, they will dive into scientific and religious themes, in order to make the players reflect. “I enjoy these questions,” he admitted in the interview.
Starfield has been revealed as one of the exclusives of the Xbox ecosystem. This means that it will be released on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and PC, although it will be available from day one on the Xbox Game Pass subscription service. In this way, Ultimate subscribers will have the possibility to enjoy the product also through the cloud, a service that will expand beyond mobile devices and will soon be able to be enjoyed on televisions, consoles, etc.
The video game already has a release date. When? We will still have to wait more than a year, since its departure is scheduled for November 11, 2022.
