Actor Stephen Ford sends a message to fans worried about Starfield, which has had similar problems to previous Bethesda titles: relax, the game will be great…
Starfield is Bethesda’s next big RPG. Unlike the previous Elder Scrolls and Fallout franchises, Starfield aims to offer fans a new experience in an original sci-fi setting. The game is set for release in late 2022, but even with a relatively close release date, fans have only seen a few seconds of in-game footage so far. There have been speculations that Starfield could be delayed like some other titles due out in 2022.
There are also fears that the game could be released with many bugs. 2022 has already seen a significant release plagued by bugs, with players of Dying Light 2 facing severe problems at launch, including a glitch that resulted in instant death.
Given Bethesda’s history of buggy releases, it’s understandable that some fans are worried.
For example, even though Skyrim is still a great game today, there are still plenty of bugs. In fact, Skyrim players are still finding new bugs 11 years after release. However, Starfield actor Stephen Ford recently reassured some fans who fear that Bethesda’s latest title will repeat the mistakes of previous games. Ford is best known for his work on Teen Wolf and Kamen Rider: Dragon Knight.
Ford has been hinting at his role in Starfield for some time, with a recent tease on Twitter showing him as the “Giga Chad” meme above the Game Awards. Though meant as a joke, some fans took Ford’s claim that Starfield will be a compelling game very seriously and criticised him and everyone else who is already superlative about the title. “People are hyping up this game so much,” said one fan, and then went on to say that he was looking forward to players encountering the flaws that are so common in Bethesda titles.
In response, Ford simply said that he thought the game was “pretty awesome”.
Although the general public has yet to see more gameplay footage from Starfield, Ford has likely seen more than most, making his opinion more informed. However, if he is as deeply involved in the game as his teasing suggests, it is unlikely that he would be talking about its flaws before launch. Ultimately, fans will have to wait to get their hands on the game before they can form a full opinion.
nah it's pretty awesome
