Impressive Live-Action Starfield Trailer Invites You To The Cosmos

Bethesda and Microsoft cooked up a special live-action trailer for Starfield.


As part of Gamescom's Opening Night Live event, Bethesda and Microsoft released a live-action trailer for Starfield--and it's pretty impressive.

The video, set to a rendition of Elton John's "Rocket Man," shows an astronaut blasting off into space, zipping around in a space ship, landing on a mysterious planet, and adventuring through an strange alien world. It definitely captures what seems to be the essence of the game, which is that you can go anywhere and do anything in a vast open world. Check it out:

Starfield arrives in early September on Xbox and PC, as well as cloud streaming, but the game's first 40 minutes and other details have leaked ahead of time. Copies of the game are now in the wild, so fans will want to be wary of spoilers for the next couple of weeks.

Starfield releases on September 6 for everyone, but the $100 Constellation Edition unlocks on September 1. That's also the day that Game Pass members, or anyone else buying the standard edition, can start playing if they buy a $35 upgrade.

Reviews for Starfield will begin to appear online starting on August 31, so keep an eye out for GameSpot's review.

A recent Starfield developer Q&A revealed a lot more information about the game, including how players can buy property and go to jail. Preloading for Starfield began on August 17, and it might be worth doing considering the game is 100GB+ in size.
