Starfield launches November 2022 for PC, Xbox Series X/S

Trailer leaks ahead of Xbox conference.

Bethesda's highly anticipated Starfield will launch on 11th November 2022.

Its launch platforms are listed as PC and Xbox Series X/S only. And, of course, it'll be available via Xbox Game Pass.

Starfield's two-minute trailer was posted by The Washington Post an hour ahead of tonight's Xbox and Bethesda livestream. We then saw it confirmed officially at the start of Microsoft's Xbox and Bethesda show.

This in-game footage is listed as from an alpha build of the game, and it doesn't give much away. We see an astronaut who is part of something named Constellation, sat in a ship on a dusty planet with a quiet-looking base and a large robot for company.

"We've come to the beginning of humanity's final journey," a voiceover mysteriously states. "That's why we've come here, to discover what's out there."

In a separate making-of video also leaked by The Washington Post, Bethesda's Todd Howard says Starfield is a game the team has been dreaming of making for 20 years. The game will follow Constellation, a group of space explorers, of which you'll play one.

"It's a next-generation role-playing game where you'll be who you want, go where you want, experience our stories and forge your own," Howard said. "More than that, Starfield is about hope, our shared humanity and searching for the answers to life's greatest mystery."

(That mystery, of course, is whether we're alone in the universe.)
