Starfield Redesigns the Classic Skyrim and Fallout Feature

Starfield, Bethesda's sci-fi RPG, is set to introduce a major adjustment to its pickpocketing mechanic. Now, stealing from NPCs will happen in real-time. 

As outlined in Reddit, real-time that will involve trailing targets and swiftly checking their pockets for loot. This is a departure from what players experienced in Skyrim and Fallout, where browsing through inventories was unlimited as time paused around them. But in Starfield, haste is the name of the game when it comes to pickpocketing. 

Although not earth-shattering, the modification represents another fascinating and immersive element that Bethesda is incorporating into Starfield. Speculation is life as to whether lockpicking will likewise adopt a real-time approach, a development that would undoubtedly raise the stakes while attempting to pick locks.
