Forbes listed No Man's Sky as one of the most awaited games of the year 2016. This title promises a quintillion of worlds to explore. In the past few months, gameplay trailers have been released online, setting the bar high for the gamer's expectation. Will Hello Games be able to deliver good results for game? Let's find out.
Because No Man's sky is filled with excellent contents, ardent gamers are eager to know about its launching. Earlier online reports suggested that the much-talked about game will become available in June this year. However, recent reports stated that the release of the title might be pushed back.
One of the possible reasons for the delay is the developers plan to launch to game on Xbox One and Gear VR consoles. Some fans are delighted about the possible availability of the game on VR headsets. Imagine exploring unknown worlds using virtual-reality headsets, surely it would be awesome.
"There's nothing more cool and sci-fi than VR and a big procedural universe. I think that, for the people who want to just explore, and even for the space combat and things like that, it would be a good fit. Let's put it that way," Sean Murray, founder of the indie British studio Hello Games, told in GamesRadar.
Hello Games is also teaming up with Sony Computer Entertainment to develop the huge universe of the game. Sony Commercial Director Fergal Gara confirmed that the gaming company would fully support the indie developer to make No Man's Sky.
With this joint project with gaming giant Sony Entertainment, gamers can expect big from No Man's Sky.
Adventurous players will enjoy the game as it is fully packed with not just 20 or 50 worlds to explore. It has 446,744,073,709,551,616 or 446 quadrillion planets waiting to discover.
According to estimates, Murray said that players would have to spend 4500-5000 years if they want to visit every planet in the game. The developers used a complex mathematical algorithm to create every planet. Moreover, the concept of a procedurally generated universe that with or without the presence of gamers is truly mind-boggling.
New Scientist published that No Man's Sky will lay the foundation of the games in the future. The possibility of endless worlds will challenge the most advanced game developers of today.
Will we see No Man's Sky this June? Let's wait and see.
