The much-hyped first look at gameplay footage from BioWare’s Mass Effect: Andromeda wasn’t a surprise at The Game Awards on Thursday night, but it was a treat.

The nearly 5-minute clip takes a look at several different facets of the game, including social spaces, cutscenes, Mako rover driving, exploration, and — of course — combat. And hey, guess what: it looks an awful lot like Mass Effect, only shinier.

It’s not too much longer before Andromeda‘s scheduled spring 2017 release, so expect to see plenty more in the near future.
