Ahead of Starfield’s September 6 release Bethesda has launched The Settled Systems – A Starfield Animated Anthology. This is an animated video anthology series taking a look at the three major cities in the game. Let’s break down the anthology as it appears over on Bethesda.net.
SUPRA ET ULTRA
In the city of New Atlantis, capital of the United Colonies, Kent, a courier pilot, aspires to live in the most desirable part of the settled systems. After joining the UC Vanguard and working his way up to the Capital’s elite, Kent quickly realizes the adventures waiting for him off-planet are what he truly longed for.—Bethesda.net.
WHERE HOPE IS BUILT
Vanna—an Akila City orphan of the famous Colony Wars—desperately wants to explore the stars and only one thing stands in her way: a broken ship. Her search for repair parts leads her throughout the city, and into some unexpected danger, as she closes in on her dream.—Bethesda.net.
THE HAND THAT FEEDS
Two Neon street rats, Ada and Harper, are partners in crime eking out a living stealing from the wealthy partygoers that come to the “pleasure city” to let loose. When Ada is forced into a moral dilemma, she quickly catches the attention of the all-seeing Ryujin Industries, bringing her an exciting new opportunity. But at what cost?—Bethesda.net.
THE SETTLED SYSTEMS – A STARFIELD ANIMATED ANTHOLOGY impressions
These animated videos give an exciting glimpse into life in the Constellation. While we know a bit about New Atlantis—as it was featured in last month’s Starfield Direct—the other two cities of Neon and Vanna are lesser known.
While some might argue that the animation style clashes with the game’s aesthetic, one can’t help but imagine what a Cyberpunk: Edgerunners-style spinoff animated TV show for Starfield would look like. In the meantime, the wait for Starfield grows ever shorter.
