Starfield looks like Fallout in space, with a bit of No Man’s Sky thrown in

A lot of eager gamers got their wish as long-awaited space RPG Starfield finally showed off some gameplay footage today at the Xbox and Bethesda Showcase. And it wasn’t some blink-and-you’ll-miss-it teaser, it was nearly 15 solid minutes of gameplay, with some interjections by Todd Howard and a few cinematic montages.

So… how does it look? Well, to my eyes it looks like Fallout in space, frankly, though there’s also a sprinkle of No Man’s Sky and yes, even the expected touch of Skyrim. That’s pretty much fine with me. I like Fallout and Skyrim, I like No Man’s Sky, I like picking locks, outer space, and robot companions, so I’d say it looks pretty good… but more than a bit familiar.
