Latest No Man’s Sky Trailer Focuses on Combat

July 20, 2016 Written by Jason Dunning

After giving us an exploration video last week, Sony and Hello Games have released a new No Man’s Sky trailer today focusing on combat.

Titled Fight, the second Pillar trailer for No Man’s Sky carries this description, warning of the Sentinels and other threats:

On a planet, players are equipped with a multi-tool to defend against deadly predator creatures and mine resources. Attacking creatures – aggressive or otherwise – or mining resources will call the attention of the Sentinels, a robotic force who seeks to keep each planet in a natural, undisturbed state. The more you fight back against the Sentinels, the higher your Wanted level, and the tougher they will become – from flying drones to quadrupedal machines, towering walkers and eventually dropships.

Space is also patrolled by the Sentinels, so attacking traders for their valuable goods or scavenging resources from freighters will also see you gaining a Wanted level, with Sentinel police ships coming to defend the natural order.

It’s not just the Sentinels who you need to beware of in space – pirates will swoop on the unwary, requiring you to evade and escape or fight back to defend your cargo.

The other two Pillar videos, Trade and Survive, will become available as we get closer to No Man’s Sky’s release date of August 9 in North America and August 10 in Europe for PlayStation 4 and PC.
