Todd Howard has revealed a ton of new info on Starfield in a brand new podcast/interview. On the Lex Fridman podcast, Howard shares new details about the game, as well as other details pertaining to all things Bethesda.
Howard shares that Starfield features a real time orbit system. Meaning if you are on a planet you will see the moon complete its orbit around the planet and vice versa.
He also discusses how planets are completely realized and infinite, meaning you can truly walk and explore every inch of the planet. Howard describes this process as being similar to The Elder Scrolls: Dagerfall where much of the land mass is procedurally generated.
There are many more details shared in the podcast including romance options, planets being “leveled”, and so much more. Make sure to check out the full video above if you’re interested in seeing more about this highly anticipated Xbox RPG.
