The Settled Systems – A Starfield Animated Anthology introduces three of the game’s major cities

There will be a lot to explore in Starfield, but Bethesda has created a special anthology series to dig into the three biggest locales.

Bright lights, big cities

Bethesda’s Starfield sure seems like it’s going to be one massive sci-fi playground for Xbox and PC players to dig into. Actually, it seems so big that it could probably be all said fans spend time with for quite a while. And even then, they’d likely still not see everything.

But although it’s a beast of an action RPG, Starfield does have a few worlds and cities that you’re going to want to get familiar with before it hits this fall. And to that end, The Settled Systems – A Starfield Animated Anthology has been released.

Three distinct episodes make up the series, which covers New Atlantis, Akila City, and a place called Neon that sounds a little iffy. Check ’em all out and get that backlog as clear as possible, Starfield arrives for the Xbox Series X|S and PC on September 6th, 2023.

Check them out below:

Supra Et Ultra

In the city of New Atlantis, capital of the United Colonies, a courier pilot named Kent 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.

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.
