Starfield’s spaceship flight won’t compete with No Man’s Sky for one simple reason

Starfield appears to share many traits with the 2016 sci-fi survival game No Man’s Sky (for better or for worse), with both offering massive procedurally generated universes to explore through interstellar travel. But Bethesda’s upcoming space-based RPG will lack a key feature of Hello Games’ slow-burning hit: seamless piloting of starships.

After revealing the first footage of Starfield on Xbox and Bethesda Showcase, studio director Todd Howard spoke to IGN (opens in new tab) about the game. During the discussion, Howard said that the team tried to implement many of the ideas requested for the game, but the ability to seamlessly fly a starship from the surface of a planet into space was left on the cutting room floor.
