It can be difficult finding time to game, as much as we all love it. Between work, school, family commitments, and social plans, you may find that you actually have very little downtime.
When it comes to a game like Starfield then that’s set to be absolutely massive, you may be concerned about just how you’re going to fit in Bethesda’s whopping space epic. After all, they’ve already teased that New Atlantis is the biggest city they’ve ever created - and the Star Map may just be the largest in-game map we’ve ever seen. Don’t forget that there are over 1,000 planets to explore. Bethesda confirmed that 10% of these will have signs of life, so that’s an incredible 100 in-depth planets to explore. Trying to work out how to tackle all of this is a dizzying thought. Some fans are booking September off work, while others are now planning the perfect sick day excuse.
Take a look at the latest trailer for Starfield below.
Reddit user thebutler97 kicked off the discussion, writing, “Who else is scheduling time off for launch day? Just pulled the trigger on my PTO request for 1 September through 8, and don't regret it at all. I did the same for Elden Ring last year, and Red Dead Redemption 2 a few years before that. Some might say it's a silly thing to spend a week of time off on, but the idea of watching the clock all day while waiting to play sounds maddening to me.”
Klutzy_Helicopter635 wrote, “I’m already feeling myself coming down with some sickness that will make me miss school,” to which Jaded-Ad-7751 replied, “Here's [one] for you: ‘Many astronauts suddenly feel as if they are upside-down or may even have difficulty sensing the location of their own arms and legs. This disorientation is described as Space Adaptation Syndrome (SAS) and is widely recognised as the main cause of Space Motion Sickness (SMS).’”
Clever, very clever. Retirement age fans are thrilled that they don’t have to deal with this problem. The hype building around Starfield is incredible. Bethesda has a captive audience. Now, they just need to deliver a solid end product.
