Starfield lets you become a sandwich bandit

As Bethesda finally lifts the curtain again for its Starfield showcase, we discover the many activities you'll get up to, including becoming a sandwich thief.

Starfield Sandwich Bandit - a man holds his hands up in front of a large pile of sandwiches.

Bethesda’s Starfield showcase reveals that you’ll have the delightful opportunity to become a sandwich bandit in the space adventure. With the Starfield release date rapidly approaching, every opportunity to get another glimpse into the universe of Starfield is a blessing from Todd Howard himself.

Now, we’ve found out that two of my favorite things about Bethesda Games Studios are coming together – that photo of the Starfield sandwich that was pretty much the only clean in-game screenshot we had of the space game for a while, and the kleptomaniac tendencies that led so many players to fill their Skyrim houses with cheese wheels.

“When I’m playing, I definitely go the more piracy routes,” says Jamie from the Bethesda Games Studio team. “I’m going to board ships; I’m like ‘this is now mine.’ I steal all the sandwiches and put them in my cargo hold that I have specifically for sandwiches.”

“I don’t wanna play the hero, but I wanna go out and just start taking things from people as quickly as possible.” I can vibe with that; sometimes you’re looking to just cause a bit of space chaos. After all, what’s more classically ‘Bethesda Games’ than that? We might have learned 35 things from the Starfield showcase, but this is my favorite.

If you’re looking for me, I’ll be scarfing sandwiches in the backroom – they’re definitely all mine.
