For those who’ve invested thousands of hours into the likes of Skyrim and Fallout 4, the release of Starfield, which is now pencilled in for September 6, can’t come soon enough.
Regardless of what you want to see from the next showcase of Bethesda's venture into space or how many interstellar mods you plan to install once it arrives, the idea of being able to delve into a freshly curated game filled with new characters and locations has RPG lovers of all stripes intrigued.
Currently, some of these would-be astronauts are taking time out from drawing spaceships to discuss the quests that’ll be on offer across the galaxy, with the focus being on guessing what kind of antics the weirdest of these missions might involve.
What kind of strange adventures do you think Starfield’s cosmos will have hidden away?
Their interstellar task ideas are the subject of a recent thread on the Starfield subreddit, which began with a post from user Apophis_Thanatos, who kicked things off by asking: “What do you think will be the weird/trippy quest in Starfield?” and referencing Oblivion’s ‘A Brush With Death’ and Skyrim’s black books as the inspirations for their question.
They also provided a few suggestions of their own for the confusing crusade, wondering: “(Will we be) abducted (and) then plugged into a simulation? (Could we) fall into a black hole? (Might we) travel faster than light and reverse time?”
Their fellow spacers had some equally interesting proposals, with user Sure-Ambassador-6424 saying: “(It could be) landing on a bizarre planet made out of meat, bones and eyes.” and inGage providing a massively detailed idea involving sentient alien fungal spores affecting your character’s mind.
Others went for adventures involving characters or locations from other Bethesda games finding a way into Starfield, with user SilverAmerican simply declaring: “Sheogorath returns.” and jbob222 proposing that the player’s ship could end up crashing somewhere in Tamriel after passing through a wormhole, leading to a quest based around enlisting locals to repair it.
Regardless of whether you’re planning on preparing for every possible eventuality that your character could end up in when you delve into Starfield in September, make sure to follow us for lots of guides to its world and mechanics.
