Starfield will be at Gamescom 2022

Among the games that Microsoft will bring to Gamescom 2022 are several exclusives, such as Starfield. The new open world RPG from Bethesda was originally scheduled for November 11, 2022, but the development team has decided to postpone the release, setting the arrival of the title for 2023. Unfortunately, however, the German event will not offer us no new gameplay video or substantial news: the presence of the game in the Xbox showfloor is probably due solely to marketing reasons.

As reported on Reddit, Bethesda has in fact made a small mistake on the website. The development team initially asked fans to attend the fair to take a look at the gameplay of Redfall and Starfield. A few days later, however, those involved in marketing and communication immediately cleared up the misunderstanding: the two game videos of the two titles will be the ones we already know and which were unveiled on the occasion of the Summer Game Fest 2022, during the showcase. of Xbox and Bethesda. No unreleased content, therefore, but only the opportunity to watch the two high-quality videos (and take home some gadgets).| ); }
In addition to Starfield and Redfall, Xbox will bring several other games to Gamescom 2022. Among these we find the Korean-style souls like Lies of P and the new adventure of Obsidian Entertainment, Pentiment.

Don't expect to see more of Starfield at Gamescom

Bethesda has updated a blog post which previously suggested we might see more of Starfield next week at Gamescom.

Fan excitment was sparked this week by word that Redfall and Starfield gameplay would be shown at a Community Get Together to be held next Friday, 26th August.

'Come see Redfall and Starfield gameplay and get your hands on Fallout 76 while you're there,' the blog teased. 'Of course, we also have a few surprises and goodies in store for you.'

Starfield was the star of Microsoft and Bethesda's June showcase.

The post raised eyebrows over on the Starfield reddit, but fans have noticed the blog has subsequently been changed to remove reference to Redfall and Starfield entirely.

Microsoft, which of course now owns Bethesda, has previously laid out its own schedule for what it will bring to Gamescom 2022 - and both Starfield and Redfall are not on it.

Instead, Obsidian's Pentiment is set to take centre stage at Microsoft's Xbox booth, alongside Age of Empires 4, Flight Sim and Grounded.

Microsoft is one of the few companies committed to Gamescom this year - and the only platform holder. Both Sony and Nintendo are sitting out the show's big in-person return, alongside Activision Blizzard and Take-Two.

Despite all that, we're still expecting a number of surprises from the show's big Opening Night Live ceremony on Tuesday 23rd. Join us for that - just don't expect Starfield.
