Starfield, Bethesda’s upcoming mega-title, will take players on an interstellar journey as brave explorers across humanity’s last frontier. So far, the places where players will actually find among the stars remains a mystery, but in a Twitter thread, Bethesda reveals three locations players can expect to find during their travels, including the bustling metropolis of New Atlantis.
Based on Starfield Design director Emil Pagliarulo, New Atlantis is the capital city of the United Colonies, the game’s dominant political faction and strongest military power. The city itself is like New York City, a place where many cultures can be explored. The second spot revealed today, Neon, begs the question “what would a fisherman do if they found a fish that made you tall?” As it turns out, they will turn their massive fishing fleet into a “fun city” where people can catch lots of fish throughout the day. The fish-based drug, Aurora, is legal only on Neon and attracts visitors from across the galaxy.
During your journey, you will visit many different places. Which of these would you like to discover the most?

The final location is Akila, the capital of another faction, the Free Star Collective. Unlike the United Colonies, the Free Star Collective is much looser, consisting of colonies from three star systems. The city itself is rife with individualists who, ironically, are cut off from the outside world. It’s not because they want to keep strangers out of the stars, but rather to stop the planet’s predators, Ashta, which is a combination of wolf and velocity.
Starfield will launch on November 11, 2022 for Xbox Series X/S and PC. Xbox Game Pass subscribers will also be able to play the game on day one.
