Those hoping for fresh Starfield info crumbs may be disappointed…
Even after the big 15-minute reveal this summer, everyone is still begging for more Starfield details. Fans had spotted that attendees at a Gamescom fan event in Germany next week would be treated to a gameplay demo, but it turns out their hopes were a little too high.
The Starfield subreddit was briefly abuzz with a rumour that fans could see Redfall and Starfield gameplay at Bethesda’s fan convention on 26 August.
By the time our colleagues at TechRadar got to the post, it had been updated to clarify that “come see a replay of the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase gameplay presentations for Redfall and Starfield.”
Now it appears that Bethesda has updated the news post again, removing any mention of the game even being at the fan convention. So hopes have been dashed.
Starfield will be part of the Bethesda booth at Gamescom. It mentions that there will be a life-size version of the companion robot VASCO for folks to stop and take photos with. Bethesda may end up showing a repeat of its June gameplay trailer there, but we don’t expect much new.
As for the rest of the festival, looking at the Gamescom 2022 schedule, we can see that Xbox is indeed planning a livestream next Thursday, 25 August.
During the six-hour booth broadcast, it plans to showcase a variety of games and developers, including Minecraft Legends, Microsoft Flight Sim, and Pentiment. Starfield is unfortunately not mentioned.
There will also be an Opening Night Live presentation on Tuesday, 23 August, hosted by Geoff Keighley. In conclusion, we can’t rule out the possibility of surprises, but given that we saw a reasonably lengthy immersion into the gameplay less than two months ago, it’s likely that Bethesda won’t have too much fresh information until at least the end of the year.
