Starfield trailer leaked ahead of Xbox/Bethesda E3 2021 showcase

It looks like someone couldn't wait to get the news out on a substantial update and reveal of Bethesda's Starfield at E3 2021.


Of all the things Xbox and Bethesda could have shown today, the one that many expected, and likely wanted to see the most, was a reveal and update on what’s going on with Starfield. Up to this point, we still had no idea how the game played or what it’s about. We probably would have learned a wealth of new details from Xbox and Bethesda about it too with their E3 2021 showcase going on… If someone hadn’t already shared the details for them and ahead of their showcase.

Quite a few details leaked on Starfield just ahead of its pretty much now-confirmed appearance at Xbox and Bethesda’s E3 2021 showcase. Chief among them was a trailer dedicated to the making of the game, which appeared on Washington Post’s website ahead of the show. We also got a release date of them in the leaks that seems to set Starfield’s launch on November 11, 2022. Starfield will also seemingly be an Xbox Game Pass Day One launch according to the end of the trailer. You can check out the official trailer live below.

It’s interesting to see a release date in this latest trailer, plus the confirmation that it will definitely be on Xbox Game Pass upon launch. This new Starfield trailer still doesn’t show off any gameplay, which is likely what many also wanted to see after it’s been so long since we saw anything new on the game. Nonetheless, the release date and the mere mention of Starfield in such capacity is pretty good and it’s still quite a long ways away.

With that November 2022 release date in place, stay tuned for more information on Starfield throughout the coming year including gameplay. Be sure to check out the rest of our E3 2021 coverage throughout the weekend as well.
