In the latest No Man’s Sky trailer today, Hello Games focuses on Survive, the fourth and final Pillar of the game.
Sony detailed what you need to know about surviving in hostile environments and against deadly lifeforms in No Man’s Sky:
While some planets are beautiful and serene, many have extreme conditions that make survival difficult. Some planets will have extreme temperatures – from freezing lows to scorching highs – while others are drenched in toxic rain, heavily irradiated or completely submerged.
For the unprepared, surviving on planets with extremes will be a challenge. Every second spent exposed in the elements will chip away at your protective shielding, which can be restored by taking shelter or expending resources to recharge it. By upgrading your suit’s technologies, you can survive harsh climates for longer, run faster, jump higher and explore for longer.
Whether you die under the claws of a creature, by the lasers of a space pirate or just succumb to the elements, death will have a real impact on your progress. Resources will be lost and technology damaged as your body is regenerated at your last save point, so make sure to put up a fight!
The next No Man’s Sky trailer should be the launch trailer, as it’s out on August 9 in North America and August 10 in Europe for PlayStation 4, and on August 12 worldwide for PC.
