Bethesda have dropped a couple of new details about their long-awaited sci-fi RPG Starfield, explaining the game's factions and various locations.

It looks like Bethesda plan to drop small snippets of Starfield info as we get closer to the E3 2022 when the first proper gameplay trailer is expected to drop. This time, the developers decided to give us a closer look at some of the factions that will be present in the game as well as new locations that we'll get to explore when the game finally launches.

Design Director Emil Pagaliarulo explains that Starfield is set in the part of the universe called The Settled Systems. The story kicks off in 2330, twenty years after a bloody colony war between United Colonies and Freestar Collective. While there is no ongoing war in Starfield, the Settled System will still have plenty of hostile factions like Ecliptic Mercenaries, Pirates of the Crimson Fleet, Violent Spacers and fanatical religious zealots.
