The gameplay trailer begins underwater. The player, in the first-person view, walks out to land and gets into a ship, before flying it towards the clouds and into space, where he proceeds to pilot through asteroids during airship dogfights.
“In our game, when you stand on a planet and you see a mountain and that mountain is like three miles or wherever it is, and you can see it, you can walk there, you can go and explore it,” Hello Games co-founder Sean Murray said at VGX.
“That planet on the horizon that you in the trailer, that’s a real place, and you can see features on it, and you can get on your ship and you can get it.”
All the stars you see in space, Murray added, are real stars, with planets around them, and you can go there and visit those planets.
Also, the game is being developed by a four man team.
