Bethesda has released an anthology set of videos for their upcoming game Starfield that they call “The Settled Systems” which are meant to serve as something of a light introduction to some of the game’s major cities and a few factions that they will deal with when the game arrives on September 6th fort the Xbox Series X/S and PC.
The first video is called Supra Et Ultra and in the city of New Atlantis, capital of the United Colonies, a courier pilot named Kent 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.
The second video, “Where Hope is Built” focuses on Vanna—an Akila City orphan of the famous Colony Wars—desperately wants to explore the stars, and only one thing is standing in her way: a working ship. Her search for repair parts leads her throughout the city, and into some unexpected danger, as she closes in on her dream.
Finally we have The Hand that Feeds, following the tale of 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?
