With Starfield just weeks away from launch, Bethesda has released Starfield: The Settled Systems — a trio of animated videos that give further insight into several main cities in the game.

The trailers follow a courier pilot from the city of New Atlantis who aspires to live in "the most desirable part of the settled systems," an orphan who wants to escape from Akila City, and "partners in crime," Ada and Harper, who are struggling to survive on Neon. The trailers, while short, are absolutely gorgeous and are definitely worth a watch.

Starfield: The Settled Systems - Supra Et Ultra

"In the city of New Atlantis, capital of the United Colonies, Kent, a courier pilot, aspires to live in the most desirable part of the settled systems. After joining the UC Vanguard and working his way up to the Capital’s elite, Kent quickly realizes the adventures waiting for him off-planet are what he truly longed for."

Starfield: The Settled Systems - Where Hope is Built

"Vanna—an Akila City orphan of the famous Colony Wars—desperately wants to explore the stars and only one thing stands in her way: a broken ship. Her search for repair parts leads her throughout the city, and into some unexpected danger, as she closes in on her dream."

Starfield: The Settled Systems - The Hand that Feeds

"Two Neon street rats, Ada and Harper, are partners in crime eking out a living stealing from the wealthy partygoers that come to the “pleasure city” to let loose. When Ada is forced into a moral dilemma, she quickly catches the attention of the all-seeing Ryujin Industries, bringing her an exciting new opportunity. But at what cost?"

Starfield launches on September 6 for Xbox Series X|S and PC and also joins Xbox Game Pass on day one. Recently, a dedicated Starfield fan spent 200 hours piecing together the game's entire skill tree.
