Review copies for the game were released last week, much to the satisfaction of fans, who believe it’s a sign Bethesda are confident the game is in a completed state and ready for release in September.

While the embargo states outlets cannot share reviews or any details about the game itself, it hasn’t stopped some from sharing their first impressions, like former Blizzard developer Mark Kern.

Kern shared a tweet talking about Starfield’s main menu, which has become quite a talking point amongst fans, saying: “The start screen of a game can reveal a lot about how rushed the team was and how much pride they took in their work.

“Starfield's start screen either shows hasty shipping deadlines by a passionate team overworked, or a team that didn't care.”

The tweet amassed thousands of likes and shares, prompting a response from Bethesda vice-president Peter Hines, who slammed Kern in a reply saying: “Or they designed what they wanted and that’s been our menu for years and was one of the first things we settled on.

“Having an opinion is one thing. Questioning out a developer’s ‘care’ because you would have done it differently is highly unprofessional coming from another ‘dev’”

Starfield has proven to be quite a controversial title, no doubt due to its significance as a major Xbox exclusive. Not only have we had PlayStation fans attempting to change its exclusivity with a petition, but the game has also been threatened with review bombs. Some fans have even expressed disappointment that it likely won’t win Game Of The Year at this year’s Game Awards, with many predicated it’ll be beaten by the likes of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and Baldur’s Gate 3.

Nevertheless, fans are still excited to finally explore the game’s vast galaxy, and are counting down the days till its release, especially fans who purchased the Constellation Edition, who’ll be getting early access.

Starfield officially launches on the 6th of September for Xbox and PC platforms.
