UK-based Hello Games confirmed the official release date of No Man's Sky in June. After its existence was announced at VGX 2013, the game is now on its way to gaming shelves. Now, here's what is currently known about No Man's Sky review, release date, and price.
No Man's Sky is set to land on PC and PS4. It will be released on June 21 in US, June 22 in Europe, and June 24 in UK. There is still no confirmation if it will be in Xbox One. There also are rumors that it will have a Mac version. However, its possibility remains a mystery.
Furthermore, PC Advisor reported that No Man's Sky was highlighted by Sony at E3 2014. Then, the game's depth was shown at E3 2015. Sony sees the potential of the indie game to offer great gaming experience in PS4. Fergal Gara, Commercial Director of Sony UK, says that the company is going to "put the full weight of PlayStation behind" the game.
"No Mans Sky has been treated as if it was from one of our internal studios," Gara added. "We have been working very closely with the developers and bringing it into our release program as if we had made it."
As for the game's features, No Man's Sky is a science-fiction game that will let you survive and explore in an infinite procedurally generated galaxy. It means that solar systems and planets will be created as you play. According to No Man's Sky website, a player can go freely on a distant mountain or a planet hanging low on the horizon. You can fly from the surface of a planet to another
It is also said that every star in the sky has a Sun that a player can visit. TIME reported that a player must spend 585 billion years in order to visit all of the planets in the game. Hello Games said that they want to stir imaginations by making a digital universe as grand as our own.
In addition, the game has no storyline. It is expected to entertain players to do what they want to do. Therefore, experience of players will be different to each other.
The game can now be pre-ordered before the release date. It has been up for pre-order on Amazon at $59.96 for PS4, while $60 for PC on Steam.
