The Settled Systems is an animated anthology featuring three Starfield stories set in three major cities we will visit in the game. I’m a major fan of Love Death + Robots and Star Wars: Visions and the three animated Starfield short stories we got today fit fit right in with those great anthologies. Get a taste of Starfield today by watching these three short stories called The Settled Systems.

How to watch Starfield The Settled Systems animated anthology

There are three animated short stories that make up Starfield The Settled Systems. All of them come in just under three minutes, so they make for a perfect watch when you’re on your lunch break. One is called “The Hand That Feeds,” one is called “Supra Et Ultra,” and another is called “Where Hope is Built.”

You can watch all three The Settled Systems stories on YouTube on the Bethesda Softworks channel. Also, the order in which you watch The Settled Systems doesn’t matter — that’s the beauty of anthologies.

The Hand That Feeds

“The Hand That Feeds” is about two street rats, Ada and Harper that live in Neon, the “pleasure city.” Ada gets offered an invitation to work with Ryujin Industries, but is she willing to lose what she’s built in the streets of Neon to pave a path she’s proud of?

Supra Et Ultra

In “Supra Et Ultra,” Kent, a courier pilot, travels to New Atlantis, the capital of the United Colonies. There, he joins the UC Vanguard and life of adventure he always wanted amongst the stars.

Where Hope Is Built

“Where Hope Is Built” sees Vanna, an orphan living in Akila City after the Colony Wars, choose to be a hero and build a ship to continue to make her parent’s proud.

After watching The Settled Systems anthology, I’m even more excited for Starfield. These stories are just a glimpse at the stories we’ll encounter and the cities and cultures we’ll experience. I truly can’t wait for this sci-fi epic, and if you feel the same, you can check out the pre-order bonuses and every edition of Starfield right now.
