The Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase was capped off with an extended gameplay demo for Starfield. One segment was set early in the game on the moon Kreet, showing the player first landing in a small craft. Alongside them is a robotic companion, which provides information on their objective–an abandoned research facility. As they make their way toward it, resources are highlighted on a nearby mountainside, and they’re removed using a laser-cutting tool.

Upon arrival at the facility, a number of space pirates have already taken it over, and the player equips a rifle and moves in to attack. The gunplay looks a little rough right now–there’s not much recoil or weight to the weapons–and the frame rate is sluggish, but that’s what delays are for. You can fly a spaceship and land anywhere on over 1,000 planets across many different systems.
