Starfield: New Atlantis is the largest city ever created by Bethesda

Bethesda executive producer Todd Howard has just made new revelations about the studio’s upcoming space RPG. We know a little more about the different cities in the game…

A few days after the revelation of the first Starfield gameplay video, Tod Howard continues the announcements. During an interview with IGN, Todd Howard gave more details regarding New Atlantis, capital of the United Colonies. According to him, this is not only the biggest in the game, but also larger than those of Skyrim, Fallout 4 or any previous game from the developer.

During the gameplay video, fans were able to get a glimpse of the city. According to Todd Howard, this one, in addition to being extensive, is intended to be complete. The manager says:She has all the services one would expectand you can work on it on your ship”. In addition, the city is at the center of the main quest, the player will therefore have to spend time there.

Todd Howard clarifies: “But it is also Constellation Headquarters, which is the faction you join and is the last group of space explorers. It’s kind of a mix between NASA, Indiana Jones and the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen..”

The Starfield director also indicated that the main quest would be longer than any Bethesda game previous one, i.e. between 30 and 40 hours. This will take place mainly by cooperating with Constellation, and therefore largely around New Atlantis. In addition, many side quests will start and take place there.

But New Atlantis will only make up a tiny part of the universe in which the player will evolve. Indeed, during the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase, Howard revealed that the game will feature over a thousand planets to explore, distributed in a hundred systems. Some fans also think that one of these systems could be modeled on our solar system. Starfield, which could be an XBox exclusive, is due out next year.
