Too much hard science fiction and ‘you’d die in space’, Starfield’s Todd Howard says

Now the countdown to Starfield has begun, Besthesda is laying down the foundation of what we can expect from the game. Starfield’s relationship with hard science fiction is number one on the list today. 

Starfield is more hard science-fiction to us,” creative director Todd Howard said in a Q&A video. Meaning, we aren’t likely to see space wizards, but rather that what happens in the game exists within the realm of scientific possibility. Although most science fiction is based on science and the known possibilities of our universe, it can still bend the rule of what is and is not possible in our physical universe. In hard sci-fi, you’ll largely see tech that could theoretically exist, along with the limitations that come with that – such as long travel times.
