Looking forward to experiencing it all myself.

"Looking forward to experiencing it all myself."

Hell yeah, I can´t wait for September 1st!

Also don´t forget about the new GI system which will take the visuals, realism and immersion of the game to another level when it comes to Bethesda games!

The first true next gen RPG is finally upon us! For me Its gonna be hundreds if not thousand of hours exploring the unknown, the mysteries, the beauty and the wonders of the universe!

13 days to go!

It’s gonna be a really long wait for me (2 years) but that’s nothing new. But yeah, I’ll also be spending hundreds of hours in this world (galaxy) as well. I put 500+ hours into Skyrim and never even finished the main story.

This ladies and gentlemen is what you call hype.

Finally picking up a Series X; know it will be worth it.

There’s a real distinct visual connection between oblivion-fallout 4-starfield

It’s creation engine 2.0, an iterative upgrade rather than a new engine. We need to manage our expectations visually

You meant Skyrim because that was the first game that used the creation engine.

Gambryo jank is baked into its core.

engine from 2016 elder scrolls per chance.? sorry shouldn't throw shade.,

SpruceMoose284d ago

And what Elder Scrolls game would that be? Did they release an Elder Scrolls game in 2016 that I'm totally unaware of?
The origin of the Creation Engine is from Elder Scrolls Oblivion which predates 2016 by over a decade.
If you're going to just throw shade at least get your facts straight.

purple101284d ago (Edited 284d ago )

elder scrolls 5 remastered / special edition one in 2016, original was 2011,

it was a kinda joke anyeway, although there's probably some truth in it,

wouldn't take it personal

Yui_Suzumiya284d ago

Skyrim was the first game to use the creation engine. Oblivion used the gamebryo engine. Please get your facts straight.


Rocketisleague284d ago (Edited 284d ago )

From your link, in the development section...creation engine is a fork of gamebyro.

The true release of the original gane engine us 1997. Its been iterively improved since then, warts and all.

Genuinely curious what is left of the engine from 1997 and oblivion. And then creation engine! Would be very interesting if some major components last this long. Likewise with unreal engine etc.

I'm today's world it's not economical to build a new engine from the ground up,he'll kts probably difficult for developers to even come up with new ideas in the engines

Probably another 16x the details moment. Can’t trust anything Bethesda says.

Snookies12283d ago (Edited 283d ago )

Luckily you don't have to trust them since it's coming to Gamepass. Going to judge for myself when it drops on there. I've been on the fence about this for a long while. It could be amazing, but I'm sure it won't be anything less than a decent game at worst. I'm sure it'll be entertaining, if nothing else. I just wonder how much No Man's Sky I'll be feeling when playing it. Seems to heavily draw from NMS from the small snippets of gameplay I've seen. I'm just crossing my fingers that the PC version will be decently optimized.

Starfield's recent player spike is good, but it needs its Cyberpunk 2077 moment now

Starfield's recent player spike is a good sign, but Bethesda desperately need to line up their Cyberpunk 2077 moment.

I feel like the second big update that releases late this year will do just that. Part of the story expansion is also new means of transportation on planets.

P_Bomb5d ago

A good DLC could turn some heads. The Destiny games got momentum that way too.

piher5d ago

What player spike?

I checked steamcharts through the link in the article and it went from 8,000 to 11.500, so yea 20% but when the game peaked at 330,000 It's safe to say that the actual effect of this update was negligible.

LostPotato5d ago

Doubt it'll ever get redemption. As many developers have said in various interviews it's beyond saving.

Just release the mod tools and expansion and move on.

Cyberpunk 2077 had some strong bones i disliked it on launch because I could see the potential I could see the strengths of what they wanted to achieve but it wasn't done yet
