  • Bethesda held an orchestra event to accompany the launch of Skyrim Anniversary Edition.
  • In addition, the orchestra played some music from the upcoming Starfield.
  • This music was accompanied by some new and familiar pieces of concept art for the game.

Bethesda Game Studios celebrates the 10-year anniversary of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on Nov. 11, with an orchestra event to accompany the launch of Skyrim Anniversary Edition. While the 2011 role-playing game was the main focus of the event, Bethesda also brought in some music from its upcoming science-fiction title, Starfield. Accompanying the music is some concept art, some of which is completely new.

If you want to jump directly to the Starfield music, you can check it out around the 51-minute mark.

The soundtrack for Starfield is being composed by Inon Zur, an Israeli-American composer who has worked on numerous games, including Dragon Age: Origins and Fallout 4. Not all of the concept art is new, with some having been shown as Bethesda has previously talked about some of the factions and worlds in Starfield, including the Freestar Collective and space pirates.

Creative director Todd Howard has explained Starfield features expanded character customization, including background details, skills and the ability for players to select their preferred pronouns. Howard also mentioned that while the team experiments with social elements, Bethesda Game Studios' "passion" is for single-player games.

Starfield is slated to arrive on Nov. 11, 2022 exclusively for Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and PC.
