Did anyone else notice the cube at 1:38 of the IGN 18 minutes of gameplay? Sean looks to the left, apparently spots the cube, and quickly looks to the right again, as if to divert attention. IGN didn't comment on it, so they either didn't see it, or knew better than to ask.
Is there any evidence as to what these things are? I know they have appeared in previous trailers, but I don't remember any speculation from the community.
See that star? I like that star. I think I'll go there.
It might be loot, but I have a hunch they aren't just resources. The loot that Sean scooped up in space from the suicidal pirate was glowing the same color as the crates but in the split-second they were visible as more than bright spots, they looked like big irregular chunks of crystal, not boxes, and added to the resource bars.
I'm thinking those boxes contain either health, ammo, mods, or blueprints.
