Bethesda has posted an interview with Starfield producer Jamie Mallory, which follows on from her latest scene-stealing intervention throughout a Starfield Direct. Mallory, you see, is a sandwich pirate. Her ship, designed to seem like a platypus, has a cargo hold devoted to storing these ill-gotten snacks. As somebody who collected an absurd quantity of skulls in Fallout 3, that is the type of element that issues in Bethesda video games.

Mallory says the concept for a platypus-based ship design got here from a pal who loves the animals, and makes the truthful level that “platypuses are simply the epitome of cute weirdness.” However we’re right here for the sandwiches, and in discussing her future ship objectives Mallory makes it clear that Starfield goes to ship a number of the daft magic all of us love in Bethesda video games.

“There are extra horrible concepts for ships,” mentioned Mallory. “One among which is a colossal sandwich hovering by means of house, aptly named ‘The Griller.’ The identify itself strikes worry, however whenever you witness this mammoth sub-like creation gracefully touchdown in a cutscene or zipping throughout the cosmos, it is pure comedic gold.”

A footlong spaceship devoted to sandwich piracy: you possibly can dig it. What turns into clear right here although is that Starfield’s constructed to accommodate such nonsense, and certainly trumpet it to the cosmos.

“It jogs my memory of these moments in video games where you unlock these outrageous pre-order outfits or objects to your character, solely to seek out them amid a critical cutscene where somebody has tragically perished, or the menacing villain makes their grand entrance,” mentioned Mallory. “It is absurd, it is hilarious, and it by no means fails to carry an enormous ol’ grin to my face.”

As for the spoils, Mallory prefers to maintain them close by fairly than stashed on an outpost. I am unsure I essentially agree, as the entire level of skull-collecting for me was to have that one room in Nuketown where, after I entered, a whole bunch of skulls immediately transpired in mid-air and fell to the bottom. It was pleasant. However possibly I will get that very same thrill from a cargo hold filled with scran.

“I prefer to maintain my sandwiches or different stolen bounty shut at hand on my ship,” mentioned Mallory, “It provides a slight factor of threat throughout these thrilling dogfights.” Sadly there isn’t any additional element on whether or not you possibly can really lose your ill-gotten hoard, which will surely add just a little spice.

You realize we’re within the house stretch for an enormous one when the discuss is all about house sandwiches (that are surprisingly helpful in-game, so there may be technique to the insanity). Some Starfield followers are being pushed to unimaginable lengths within the run-up to launch, reminiscent of the varied makes an attempt to reverse-engineer complete parts of the game from trailer clips, whereas anybody engaged on it’s simply sick of the infinite questions: simply ask Todd, OK.
