These Leaked Screenshots May Be Our First Look At Bethesda’s Starfield

Starfield is making headlines recently, which is odd for a game that we haven’t heard a peep from since 2018. At the time, Bethesda released a trailer for what they promised to be an epic sci-fi space romp. But ever since then, we haven’t heard anything about Starfield until extremely recently where Todd Howard told us that the game was getting a complete engine re-write to take advantage of next-gen console technology.

And now we have these leaked images courtesy of Reddit. According to games YouTuber Skullzi, these images are from an early build of Starfield circa 2018, so likely the game has changed significantly since then, but it at least gives us an idea of what Starfield is all about.

In the first image, we see a character in a spacesuit outside of what appears to be some sort of lunar base. The over-the-shoulder view has a very basic HUD where the lower right corner contains info on weapons and grenades (in this case, something that appears to be a shotgun) as well as health and stamina. On the left side, a bizarre gauge that seems to display multiple pieces of info at once.

A closeup of that gauge reveals what it measures, which seems to be gravity level, time of day or night, as well as oxygen and CO2 levels.

The third image is either a spaceship or a space station–it’s hard to say without seeing more of Starfield’s aesthetic. There don’t appear to be any classic indicators of a space-faring vehicle like wings or engine nacelles, but the truth is, there’s no reason for a spaceship to look like anything in particular. You can travel through space just fine in a perfect sphere with some strategically placed thrusters.

The overall feel here is for a third-person open-world game (or open universe, in this case), but we still don’t have enough information. This game could have a similar scope to No Man’s Sky, or it might just be Fallout in space. We’ll have to wait for more leaks to say one way or the other.
