Bethesda has confirmed Starfield will have a fan-favorite feature when it releases via Xbox Series X and PC next year. Starfield sounds like one of the most ambitious games in years. Whether Bethesda Game Studios manages to deliver on this ambition, remains to be seen. That said, while Starfield sounds ambitious, it's not going to be something completely new and revolutionary. Everything Bethesda says about the game sounds like a classic Bethesda Game Studios game. In addition to this, all of the usual features are present. For example, the game will have a photo mode.
Over the last few years, photo mode has gone from a unique, standout feature to a basic feature in AAA games, especially open-world AAA games. That said, not all implementation of it is equal. Unfortunately, while Bethesda has confirmed the feature, it's not gone into any detail about it, so we have no insight to offer on whether or not Starfield will be a good example of photo mode or a bad example.
As always, we will keep you updated. Typically, features like this are fleshed out closer to release, so we may have to wait until 2023 to find out more details about the game's photo mode.
Starfield is slated to release sometime in the first half of 2023 via Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, and PC.
