No Man's Sky got everyone's attention at the VGX Awards. Here's five things you need to know about the upcoming sci-fi epic from Hello Games.
am i the only one hyped for this games potential?
Nopes :D I can't wait! I will definitely buy this!
You seriously think your the only person in existence who wants to play this game ?? This game looks epic!
the question was a bit rhetorical as in for lolz but ya glad ta see it getting a little love still here on n4g the article says the games on track for release inspite of the flood so good news for all ya
The ambition is strong with this one...
Support them in twitter. They took the flood quite positively.
Wow, with so much exploring to do you'd almost call it No Man's Skyrim.
Ermm dont bring it down. Skyrim is miniscule in comparison.
Was just a silly pun. I know this game is much bigger, but when it came out, skyrim was considered pretty freaking large (if not sizewise, then timewise. Can easily clock 200+ hours, as I expect you also could in this game, hence the pun).
Worth noting that this isn't the "first" attempt at creating a procedural universe at a massive scale. It will probably be the first full on game to do that. Space engine has a procedural universe. That isn't meant to downplay what these want to create, it will definitely be unique. Just kind of sucks that it took so long for this idea to finally get noticed. I was hyped since those Infinity tech demos were released years back.
"I don't know how much I want to say about how you go about doing that, but you will have to co-operate with other people to make that journey." Please tell me this isn't online only.
Actually I believe it`ll be a singleplayer game with some online aspects that change the game. They said that you would never directly interact with others playing the game but if a planet you find is filled with resources and people find out then they could come and eventually the planet could be completely wiped clean of resources. If you kill a bird on a planet then no one will know but if you wipe that bird species out of existence then all others will never see those birds again.it will apparently have no multiplayer but basically everything you do will have an impact to the universe. Now I may be wrong, for they have also said that to escape the first planet you spawn on will require some "team work and creativity". So I would imagine there being some sort of online marketplace style trading or an economic system. I personally hope for at least some limited interaction between friends or something like a private planet for 4-10 players for my chums and I to go attack pirates, claim planets or something.
"They have next-gen graphics but we are more interested in creating next-gen gameplay," Exactly, people are so hung up on 30/60fps or 1080p that this is what next gen games should be trying to achieve.
I don't think that's what he's saying. This game will probably be in 1080p/60fps. Framerate and resolution just give you smoothness and clarity. What he's talking about are things like sub-surface scattering, ray tracing, volumetric lighting, soft-body physics and the such.
Sorry, re-reading what I wrote doesn't seem clear. I'm multitasking. What I meant was the developer commented on what they were seeing so far with next gen games isn't anything that could be achieved with last gen consoles. What I mean to say is I'm looking for next-gen games that offer more than just 1080p and 60fps. I want new experiences and different types of game designs.
Ah, I see. In that case I completely agree! Have a bubble for the confusion :)
