It is 3am, I am sitting in my lounge room surrounded by moving boxes, the first thing I unpacked was my consoles and TV for this very moment. I have coffee in my hand and my laptop open ready to hopefully be wowed by what Microsoft will bring us over the next year. Fortunately, I was not disappointed, the 50 games showcased over the 2 hour presentation definitely have something to offer everyone and with big hitters like Bethesda coming to play with huge titles like Starfield, it feels like E3 without actually being E3.
With that in mind, let’s get the heavy hitter out of the way. Starfield was the finisher and such an explosive way to finish a solid showcase. This time around we got to see actual gameplay mixed with cinematic cut scene footage, truly showing us what it is going to be like in this world. This game seems to be a blend of mining for resources, planet exploration (clearly taking inspiration from the recent No Man’s Sky) while still incorporating combat with pirates taking over abandoned research stations and if that wasn’t enough, ship customisation, outpost building and character creation look detailed and extremely polished. While the developer is confident for a 2023 release, I feel like maybe they should have put an asterisk on this, as the scope of this game with thousands of planets to explore looks like an epic task.
