According to one of No Man's Sky's developers, you wont be able to tell AI controlled characters and human controlled entities apart.
I'm definitely interested on finding out more on the multiplayer aspect of the game.
https://www.youtube.com/wat... Maybe some of these answer can help you or even the full interview
Thanks. Somewhat cryptic answers though.
* People will come up with Human indicator movements like waving hi, but in your ship. That way you can tell.
Okay. If they can wave at you, does that mean they can shoot down your ship?
does this mean theres no in game voice communication of any sort? i would have hoped there was some way of talking to other players :/
Yes. He has said many times that there will be no way of communicating, and that they will not even give you any way to tell humans from AI.
That kinda sucks :( have they said why? Seems a little silly. Unless they are going for that whole Journey feel then I can kind of understand
What's the point of that?
Hoooooow about you just invite your friends to a party chat on the PS4 and ask 'em where they are?
LOL so you have no Idea wether its AI or human...kinda sucks. One thing I remembered when playing Phantasy Star online was the fact that I could recognize a friend from long distance buy what there characters look like. What they are telling me here is that you can be alone in a planet with some AI. Sound a bit lonely.
I dunno, it seems like a nice idea, a sort of mirroring of real life; you walk past people everyday but dont interact with them, the same may be true in No Man's Sky.
So be careful on who you kill. Might be ur friend. I cannot see the point of doing this. Multiplayer experience with single player feel? whats the point?
As hyped as I am for this game, this is the one thing so far I'm disappointed in. They already said it will be very hard to find people any way because the universe is so big. It should be a big deal and be made known to you if you actually find another person. If you can't actually interact, then there really is no reason for this to be an online game.
No Mans Sky "Your friends are here, but you cannot play with them, even though you are playing with them."
LOL that is my take from what I am hearing...Pretty suspicious. Maybe it will all be AI.
Everyone needs to so thinking of this game as multiplayer. Hello Games made a mistake by even mentioning it. They should have said no multiplayer when asked. If you want to play a multiplayer game, there are plenty of those out there. Think of this as single player.
I didn't say it was multiplayer, they did.
Stupidest crap ever! This game is sounding like its going to be a very lonely exploration game and with alot of emptiness. Doesnt matter if its not mp or not, the point is what weve seen so far is alot of emptiness, if i wanted that id turn off all the lights and lock myself in my room.
Its like Minecraft without my farm.
Yeah hopefully if there's a lot of negative reaction to this they'll let you cruise around the galaxy with drop in drop out co-op with people on your friends lists. If you really want a lonely space exploration then you can set your profile to block it and keep you anonymous but what would it hurt to give us options?
That kinda stinks. A man wants to go on a space romp with his buddies! Why not let us drop in and drop out for some exploring with a buddy or a band of buddies?
Didn't they say that game would be filled with Micro transactions? That's why I kind of lost interest in it.
Is it as beautiful and varied as this? A man likes a lot of 2d indie type games (just got Retro City Rampage on disc) but in a game like this it's a lot of spectacle and massiveness that would be fun to explore with buddies
So its going to be like WoW with the factions interactions with PVP off.
I don't even want multiplayer in this. Everyone knows that multiplayer leads to people screwing around when you're trying to get things done. Want to tack on multiplayer?... Do it like Mass Effect. Can you imagine people dropping into your game running around like a bunch of freaks when your in the middle of the scene with Mordin on Tuchanka? F that.
