The long-awaited game “Starfield” is finally nearing its release date on September 6, marking the culmination of several years of development by Bethesda Softworks. This expansive space-themed RPG has remained largely veiled in secrecy since its initial announcement. Despite several gameplay previews from Bethesda, there’s a plethora of information that remains undisclosed to eager fans. If you’re among these information and prefer to approach the game with a sense of novelty in two weeks’ time, it might be wise to steer clear of social media until then, as “Starfield” is currently facing a significant risk of spoilers.
In recent days, approximately 40 minutes of gameplay from the early segments of the game have surfaced on the internet. These videos appear to have been captured by an individual who obtained an early copy of the game’s collector’s edition. For legal reasons and due to Bethesda’s efforts to control the situation, we won’t provide direct links to this content. Nonetheless, it’s become quite accessible for those seeking it. The leaked footage is repeatedly being shared on platforms like YouTube, Reddit, and Twitter. These clips delve into the introductory missions, cutscenes, and the comprehensive character creation options that the game offers.
For fans who aren’t concerned about spoilers from the game’s initial segments, this situation is a source of excitement, as they eagerly analyze the revealed content. However, for those aiming to avoid such early glimpses, this leakage is disappointing. Understandably, Bethesda is also displeased with this breach of information.
Predicting the extent of time required to avoid “Starfield” spoilers is uncertain. In a strategic move to allow reviewers to thoroughly explore the extensive game, Bethesda distributed review copies two weeks ahead of the official release date. Unfortunately, it seems that certain recipients of these early copies have acted irresponsibly, resulting in leaks of both footage and screenshots. Expressing his frustration on Twitter, Matt Frary, Bethesda’s Senior Director of PR, conveyed his dissatisfaction without naming individuals responsible for the leaks.

Frary’s sentiment isn’t isolated, as over the past few days, Twitter has been abuzz with fans encouraging fellow gamers to abstain from sharing the leaked content or engaging in spoiler discussions prior to the game’s official release. For those anticipating reviews that are devoid of significant plot revelations, the wait won’t be prolonged. The review embargo for “Starfield” is scheduled to lift on August 31. This pivotal moment will grant critics the ability to provide a comprehensive assessment of the captivating universe that Bethesda has meticulously crafted.
