Rumor: Starfield Images Escape
Starfield has been a remarkably popular topic in gambling recently. That is despite there being no big, or perhaps modest, game-related Starfield reveals for some time. It’s Microsoft’s recent acquisition of Bethesda that is stirring things up. Questions regarding stage exclusivity are a priority for many gamers. And now, in the middle of it all, it seems that many Starfield screenshots have leaked.
Three pictures were shared on line through Imgur, which were then shared on Reddit with a throwaway account called Electrical-Ad-8659. 1 photo features a user interface graphic showing an oxygen gauge and several other elements that would presumably be significant for gameplay. The next image shows the version of a large spacecraft. The third and final picture looks like a real screenshot showing a third-person participant character, UI elements, and what could be a space station or foundation.
It is the third and second pictures that are especially intriguing. The UI judge certainly poses some interesting questions regarding the way in which the participant will interact with space. Mechanics for oxygen, gravity, night and day, etc indicate a great deal of depth. But until Bethesda is willing to discuss details about Starfield’s gameplay, speculation concerning these mechanics will likely be off-base.
The spaceship screenshot is very detailed, with the spaceship with a huge assortment of panels, thrusters, lighting, platforms, etc. The level of detail could mean that the spaceship is quite important. Perhaps it’s the player’s ship, like how the Normandy is Commander Shepard’s spaceship. Maybe it’s another character or faction’s spaceship, or maybe it is genuinely modular like how Destiny 2 produces such a wide range of ships.
Last, the next screenshot is the most curious of all. It might be a real gameplay screenshot from Starfield. The player-character is wearing an astronaut’s entire match, and what could be a jet pack of types. The bottom-right corner of the screenshot has the gauge shown from the first picture. At the bottom left it shows the player’s health, stamina, and what seems like a weapon and ammo. The arrangement facing the player is the largest oddity, as it’s hard to tell what it is for or where it is actually located.
Some may question the veracity of those leaked pictures or whether they are associated with Starfield in any way. One commenter on Reddit asserts that the patch onto the player’s shoulder is identical to some symbol previously shared at a Starfield teaser image. But perhaps the more pressing question is whether these leaked images imply that Bethesda is getting ready to share more info about Starfield soon.
