Starfield is an upcoming ARPG game developed by Bethesda Game Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks. After a long wait and many rumors, fans were finally blessed with a formal announcement at Bethesda’s E3 Press Conference in 2018. Since it is from Bethesda, which has brought countless notable titles, we know it will be something to look forward to.
Even then, we were blown away to space after discovering that the game would have almost 1,000 planets. It will be massive and fun to explore, as the sheer size of the universe within Starfield has been teased by Todd Howard himself.
About the Game
A few might read this news without knowing what the game is about. It is set in a space-themed world and extends far from the Solar System to approximately 50 light-years away, to a system called The Settled Systems. The year is 2310, and conflict has started between two of the largest factions, United Colonies and Feestar Collective.
The conflict is called the Colony War. Starfield takes place 20 years after this war, with the prominent factions having an unstable peace. Our player is a customizable character and a member of the Constellation, a group of explorers. This game will be the first IP developed by Bethesda in 25 years.
The LinkedIn profile of the Graphics Programmer working on Starfield reveals that it will have RTX integration.
It further elevates gamers’ excitement, who have been waiting patiently for this game for years.
RTX In Starfield
Our sharp eyes at TopTierList found an interesting detail on a Graphics Programmer’s LinkedIn profile. Germain Mazac is working on Starfield, and among the things he is working on, we can see “RTX integration” mentioned at the end.
We can see that he has been working with Bethesda on many titles for almost 7 years. It further adds credibility to this piece of information. In addition, as we did not hear anything from the developers about it, we can expect an announcement or at least a mention of this in upcoming news.
Starfield already had us on the edge of our seats, and this only takes that to another level. If you are unfamiliar with what RTX exactly is, don’t be embarrassed, many gamers don’t understand it fully.
RTX is introduced by Nvidia GeForce and is a high-end professional visual computing platform. Its primary use is designing complicated and large-scale game models and many other things. As our main focus is on games, it enables real-time ray tracing. The term itself stands for Real-Time Ray Tracing.
Now that we know Starfield will have RTX, the only thing we are waiting for is a piece of potential news on whether the game will support 60FPS. If so, this game will win the hearts of many and snipe some awards, considering how hyped people are for it. We know the game can be played in first-person and third-person, an additional cherry on top.
What are your thoughts on Starfield on RTX? And do you think the game will also run on 60FPS? We would love to know what you think, so let us know below, and we will get back to you!
