Hello Games has long made it clear that its peculiar space simulator has been a tricky butterfly to pin when it comes to preview events. An eccentricity that has us all the more excited for its eventual release.
Starting from scratch, players will gradually acquire wealth as they hop from planet to planet, uncovering new ships and resources in the process.
Built around a first-person perspective, No Man's Sky is placing you smack bang into the thick of the action as you explore its alien worlds.
With its unique color palette and dazzling planets, Hello Games' will look to make the PlayStation 4 sing.
Exploration may be a core strand of the game's DNA, but the studio has hinted that players will also find themselves in the midst of high-speed dogfights.
Beneath the glossy, retro-futuristic aesthetic is a burning desire to explore the unknown. Bring me that horizon!
No Man's Sky may not be a multiplayer game per se, but other players will populate your stellar neighbourhood. After all, who doesn't love some friendly competition?
From bizarre wildlife to a planet's atmosphere, each world will be relatively different to the next, encouraging the player to go boldly where no man has gone before.
