The game’s director Todd Howard during a short developer diary video said, “A lot of us have been doing this for a long time together.” The background, the traits, defining your character, all those stats. I think there’s so many games now that do those things that people are ready for something that does a lot of the things that older hardcore RPGs, something we used to do, doing those again in a new way.” Also Read - Biggest acquisitions made in the gaming industry: Microsoft-Activision Blizzard, Tencent-Supercell, and more

While Howard did not speak to the point, he did hint that the game will be going back to some of the more traditional character-building elements of RPGs. This means that we could get to see a lot of older-gen RPG elements from older Bethesda games like the Elder Scrolls series and the Fallout franchise.

Take note, this is not the first time Bethesda has teased a return to older RPGs with Starfield. Last year Howard revealed that Starfield would be “a bit more hardcore of a role-playing game than we’ve done.” He also added that the game would go “back to some things that we used to do in games long ago that we felt have really let players express the character they want to be.”

Bethesda is set to release Starfield on November 11. The game will be made available on a number of platforms including PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S. Additionally, the game will be made available on day one to Xbox Game Pass subscribers for free.
