If you’re a big fan of space exploration games, then you might want to start a new adventure with this new game from Hello Games. No Man’s Sky lets you discover a mysterious universe with the Horizon Omega ship.
No Man’s Sky is a “science-fiction game set in an infinite procedurally generated galaxy.” Here’s a quick breakdown of the things you should expect from the game.
Your voyage on No Man’s Sky is up to you. Create your story as you travel across its mysterious and enchanting universe. Whether you want to be a fighter, preying on the weak and taking their riches, or a bounty hunter who takes out pirates, the choice is all yours. Fly smoothly from dark space to planetary surfaces filled with unique lifeforms.
Collect resources and trade them for money to upgrade your ship, suits, and equipment, to take you further away in the deep galaxy.
The game is a first-person, open-world survival game. Each player is equipped with a survival spacesuit with a jetpack, a multi-tool use to scan, mine and collect resources, and a spacecraft as your main vehicle to land and take off from planets. Using this tool, the player can freely explore, combat and trade to survive longer in space.
Players can collect information on the planets that they can upload on Atlas, a galactic database, which they are paid with units, the in-game currency. You can use these units to purchase new survival gear, tools, and spacecraft.
No Man’s Sky, by far, possessed a unique space exploration gameplay unlike any other. The universe it features is procedurally-generated, this includes solar systems, planets, creatures, and even the weather systems. It also features excellent rendering that gives each creature, geological formation, plant and spaceship a unique look. But the very best part of this game is that it dictates no plotline. You are free to do anything you want and explore the space in any way you choose. Such freedom allows you to discover things on your own and gives the thrill of curiosity.
Currently, the game has received over 50 awards and nominations including Game Critics Awards, The Game Awards Most Anticipated Game, Polygon Editors’ Choice Award, and IGN Game of Show E3 2014. The game is released for PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Windows PC and gaming laptops on August 13, 2016.
