Starfield is finally set to launch on 6 September, and goodness me. Bethesda’s upcoming space epic is set to be a whopper of a game.
We’re almost one week on from the Xbox Games Showcase, and so much has been revealed about Starfield since. We already knew that it would have over 1,000 planets to explore, but it’s since also been unveiled that New Atlantis is the biggest city that Bethesda has ever created. The Adoring Fan is back, plus NPCs will call you by your actual real life name. The map may just be the biggest thing we’ve ever seen, although the 30fps lock is one aspect of the game that’s left some people talking. The latest tidbit we’ve discovered though is that the spaceships will have a ‘rage quit’ button you can reportedly smash at any moment. Allow me to explain.
Take a look at Starfield’s latest trailer below.
As reported by PC Gamer, the ‘rage quit’ button was spotted by fans during the most recent gameplay deep dive. In one shot, we got a close-up of a ship’s cockpit control panels. There are various switches and buttons with labels you’d expect like ‘port gear’ and ‘life support’ but more amusingly, one simply says ‘rage quit’. It’s stating the obvious, but rage quitting is essentially when a game makes you so angry that you have to turn it off.
Clearly, developers thought it would be a funny detail for gaming fans to spot. It remains unknown what the button actually does, although Dexerto suggests that you will be able to press it. If you’re flying through space and smash a ‘rage quit’ button, would your ship explode? Would it float around without a clear path? Would it disappear into a black hole? I really don’t know the answer.
It could be an eject button, I suppose? That seems more likely. Time will tell.
