Media

From the forums of Frontier, a user named urufu1997 shared his theories regarding the possible connection between the Starfield and Fallout franchises in June 2022. According to this theory, the sci-fi RPG Starfield and the post-apocalyptic Fallout are part of the same universe, with Starfield being set several centuries after the nuclear disaster that defines Fallout.

The user shared a couple of concept arts for Starfield featuring robots from the Fallout series, with one piece of art showing a Vault-Tec installation with the same yellow and blue colors used in the Fallout franchise. Additionally, similarities have been noted between the laser weapons in both games, as well as references to Vault-Tec technology being potentially useful for space exploration.

This theory has sparked excitement among fans, raising the question of whether Bethesda will confirm if Starfield and Fallout are indeed set in the same universe.

Starfield, which was released in September 2023, is available on Xbox Series X|S, Windows, Steam, and Game Pass. Despite the waning interest in the theory in recent months, it has certainly piqued the curiosity of many fans, leaving them eager for Bethesda to confirm or deny the connection between the two beloved franchises.

Stay tuned for further developments. As of now, Starfield can be played on Xbox, PC, and any device compatible with Game Pass. Fans are eagerly awaiting the release of official mod support and the game’s first expansion. Additionally, this year will see the launch of the next-gen remaster of Fallout 4 and a TV series.
