What’s in the trailer? Bethesda’s Game Director Todd Howard hosted a 15-minute presentation livestreaming just about everything fans can expect from Starfield. Firefights with space pirates, base building, exploring alien planets, conflicts between multiple factions – it’s all Bethesda through and through. Memories of Skyrim and Fallout 4 quickly come to mind.

Comparisons with No Man’s Sky are also almost unavoidable, given the large number of planets to be explored and the extensive exploration. Parts of the trailer could come 1-to-1 from the Hello Games adventure. That’s why fans affectionately give Starfield the nickname “No Man’s Skyrim“.
