That sounds exciting, right? Well, some of the gaming enthusiasts passionate about the Xbox exclusive don’t think so.

Fans worried for Starfield over its space exploration comprising of 1,000 planets in an open world

In the recent showcase, the team behind the game revealed tons of new features and details. On the rocky moon of Kreet, players will get to explore and encounter unpredictable, strange wildlife and NPCs. However, this is only one of the many locations in Starfield.

 

According to director Todd Howard from Bethesda, “It’s not just this planet, it’s all the planets in the system… and not just this system, but over a hundred systems, over 1,000 planets, all open for you to visit.”

Furthermore, he also said it was an incredible journey making this IP and they “Can’t wait for all of you to experience the game.”

While the overall gameplay reveal did seem appealing in the Xbox event, some of the Starfield fans are still not excited. Following the announcement by Howard regarding space exploration, several players raised their concerns on social media.

It looks like not many of them are interested in having the option of going to 1,000 planets in the vast space. Because they think that it’s impossible to create a quality-based environment for so many locations in this open-world title. Hence, Bethesda is only adding quantity over quality, as per some of the users.

Few of the fans were so frustrated with the latest reveal that they mentioned a total disinterest in the game. They wrote:

“Is it impossible to just have 10 very good, hand crafted planets? Procedurally generated planets will get incredibly boring after the 5th one and we all know it. Creating emotions without human input is impossible. Lost all hype for this.”
