Fresh exciting reveals have emerged on 'No Man's Sky' release date, features, and more when Hello Games' director, Grant Duncan, appeared at Game Developers' Conference 2015 last week.
I'll wait till it drops to see how it does. For now, Just observing.
They already have my money. I want this so bad. This with Morpheus would be just incredible.
This is typically the kind of game that makes me want to try VR. I heard only good things about Elite Dangerous with Oculus.
A game like this equipped with VR would be sweet.. I just want to know what else I can do besides exploring.
@Aloren, not sure if this is the kind of game you want to try it. When IGN played Star Citizen some members complained about getting motion sick with VR, remember a space ship is quite manubrable, but the earth exploration part is great with VR.
This is the reason I think the two gravitated toward each-other, even more than the instal-base. The guarantee of Morpheus and Occulus (now also Vive?) support os huge for a game like this. @everyone above who's arguing They have said it's timed, so chances are high this appears on Xbox One. The only difference between this and something like Tomb Raider is that, due to the larger PS4 user numbers there are less people constantly asking for clarification on this than there are for TR. Hello Games has no real reson to appease fans or manage negativity they way those who chose Xbox (timed) exclusivity do.
Wow.. it just dawned on me how huge their dev approach is and how it could really help revolutionize game development. Not talking about how the game looks or plays. Im Talking about the level to which they are procedurally generating the game. To make a massive game that doesn't take up a massive space on your drive or some server. To do what they are doing at the complexity level they are at is awesome. Hope the resulting game is a blast too. We will have to see.
Right on Septic!!! I can't wait to play this on Morpheus!
Dont know if im being skeptical, but im currently playing E:D, and have to say that theres isnt a whole lot to do after a while. Combat,Mining,Exploring, or Trading... New things are comming tho, but I wish it would come sooner and this is from Frontier Developments a company that consists of around 240 people. Im worried that NMS will face similar problems especially since Hello Games, according to Wiki, consists of 9 people :O
Not sure what else there is to know. The concept alone has me already.
You observe Fro...I'm salivating and hyperventilating. Between the promise of Morpheus and the possibilities of No Man's Sky, Rime, and Wild, I'm beside myself.
@TheFro: As opposed to what? Seeing how it does BEFORE it drops?
Thanks for sharing? We all care you're just observing? Rolls eyes... This game looks quite ambitious. I've been engrossed in elite dangerous for over a month, ready to try out star citizen, and can't wait to play this game. This generation is getting some serious space exploration love, and it's insane!
Star Citizen makes this game look like a kids game. Honestly it really does. Compare the two.
TheFro Okay I do not see why people disagree with you. NO I DISAGREE YOU MUST PRE-ORDER DIS! YOU NO WAIT FOR RELEASE!
I'm looking forward to this game but unfortunately I can't read these exciting new details as all I get is a screen full of ads!!! Which is now the bane of the Internet!! Anyway I intend to get lost in space soon..
Get Chrome or Firefox. Install the add-on called AdBlockPlus. Get a good Virus/Malware detector. I use Norton (doesn't mean you need to.) Then, download for free (and donate if you wish) "Spybot Search and Destroy" Use it to clean your browsers. I forgot that "pop ups" even existed until I read your post. Happy gaming!
looking forward to this and elite dangerous for ps4
It seems so strange that we are getting 2 very nice space games already this console generation. Last gen was truly embarrassing, I don't think there was any decent ones unless you count Darkstar One and Project Sylpheed, Sylpheed was great but was more of an action game with no exploration and Darkstar One was pretty average. Both Elite and no Man's Sky are must buys for me.
Has anyone played this game yet? I'm witnessing many claim this game to be a revolutionizing force in the games industry. Something just wreaks of it being to ambitious of a project and falling short of all of the elements of game play it incorporates. This is not a hope of mine, it's just me not giving into hype for an unproven development studio. When a person says Naughty Dog, you know that whatever they touch will be good...
The initial excitement is for how they are developing the game More so than the game itself although the game does also look intriguing.
I wouldn't call these guys "Unproven." They have released games that have done well enough for them to follow this vision. Is No Man's Sky for everyone? Probably not. I know what the game entails. I know exactly what to expect: It is a space exploration game, heavy on the exploration. You can own a spacecraft and travel to distant worlds. You can explore almost every aspect of each world. Every world will be different. Though you can reach the center of the galaxy, there is no reason to. You can participate in space battles and the people you help will help you in return. I am an astronomy geek. I love looking at the stars and wondering what is out there. This game is right up my alley. If the game delivers any more than what I have described here, it will be a pleasant surprise.
Agreed with thorstein,each of the games I mentioned will fit different people. I can't wait to hear more about this game, but I hope it's not ruthless like elite. Just to have variety. Example, let's say a real player and not just a npc rolls up on you while mining, and tells you do abandon your cargo, and you decide to put up a fight, you can target his thrusters or some modules specifically and leave him floating in space helplessy.
@thorstein 'Though you can reach the center of the galaxy, there is no reason to." There is reason to reach the center though.Everything else you said I agree with
@Dark_King Yes. Of course, you are right about there being a reason to. I should have extended the thought a bit. "...there is no reason to" because the exploration will be such an awesome part of the game. I feel like I would be content just to explore.
This games been compared with Starship Citizen,and Elite Dangerous. I know SC had been said to have some the best vehicle controls, and actual pvp fps to it with inner craft walking around ability I guess you could say. Not sure is there's planetary landing in SC. If anyone knows, please comment. Elite is what I have on the pc, and it's known for its 400 billion solar systems that are randomly generated, like what's been mentioned before for NMS,while SC has I think 200 which are handmade. They focused more on quality over quantity. Elite also is known for its scientific side like gravity while in space, and planets actually orbiting and all that space stuff. All I can say is look into all of them, especially that ED is a game that's out right now, that's been around since the 80s, and made by a studio that's made games for console, or maybe just XB1.not 100%sure. But the fun part about ED,is that it will have multilayer, planetary landing. The difference ships and customizing is really fun, and it's not an indie. ED is the kind of game that made me get a gaming pc, but now it and, NMS are gonna run on console is amazing. ED has been said to release on X1, but I'm guessing only because this studio had already made games for the X1. ED at first wasn't really said to come to console for sure, so say anyone thinking MS got ED in X1 first is their answer to NMS, just really makes it feel like some console war argument about who gets what and who does what. Studio already made games for x1, they said their really familiar with x1,so they run on x1 first, can you blame them. If you want everything, get a pc. But don't mind other people Ck1x, just be glad games like these will exist on console. It's takes weeks of real time to travel to the other end of ED world. Look into it, and what explorers do on reddit. Soon on console
I don't need an end goal, but I still fail to see the motivation in visiting all of these planets. Something I don't quite understand either: is it proceedural in that I will never see a planet anyone else does or was just the initial creation proceedural (and currently unknown to Hello Games)? I'm interested. This is the game sandwiched between Uncharted 4 and MLB The Show in terms of announced games that might have me adding a PS4 to the family this year.
Exploring the planets is the motivation. It is procedurally generated in all aspects. You may happen upon planets discovered by other players, that is certainly a possibility, but chances are, you will not. You may even fly by another user and not even know it. Since users are so spread out, it is quite possible that you may never meet. Kind of how life is unlikely to meet in our universe.
More or less If you and I visited the same location our games would procedurally generate whatever world was there identically. So the universe is the same for everyone.
Definitely consider me hyped. This will be a day one for me. So curious what they got in store.
misleading article title, release date was always later this year. no new information
Haha the video 'what is a no man sky'? Astronaut 'there is literally millions of years worth of gameplay'. The other guy...... 'Will there be any DLC'? Lmao
Anyone that's excited about NMS needs to read some reviews of Elite Dangerous. Elite has 1% of the number of stars NMS is shooting for. They have 10x as many programmers. And you never go planet side. And its still to big and too empty. Trust me flying between planets in a straight line for 20 min is BORING! And procedural generation has never EVER been done well. Sure you might see some really weird looking stuff - but you can do that in Skyrim by hitting random on the facial generator!
I'm sorry to hear that elite is not what you were hoping it would turn out be. But elite was and never has been about fast paced action non stop. Its a labour of love for most players in the same vain that most of these ftp mobile game are like nowadays. You preform your actions and wait. You have to work hard to make money before things start to pick up and you can equip better stuff travel further and faster. As for saying procedal generation never has really worked, well elite has been around for over 30 yeare so it must have done something right. I wouldn't have followed the series since my zx48 if it hadn't. Once nms is released I will getting it, even if just like elite, it feels like its still in beta phase. It not about where your going to, its about the journey that you take.
Well youre just ants at a picnic arent you?
This game is so over hyped. It's crazy. People are setting themselves up for a huge let down.
is this game 1080p?
If it isn't I'm going to be very disappointed.. Including every other fan. Until they release official specs on it I'd have to say there is a %100 chance for getting 1080p. ;)
This is actually how our universe began. The species that the developers created, "us" ,became intelligent and started attacking players and destroying their ships so they stopped coming to Earth.
Is this an indie download or a full fledged 60$ game? Anyone?
I am pretty sure it is going to be a download only. That is all I have ever heard.
Still no word on combat or any objectives? The game looks great and sounds too good to be true but I need something to actually do in the game besides fly around and find planet after planet.
The overall objective is to fly to the centre of the galaxy, why? No idea. Maybe that is where Earth is?
Exactly there is no objective no reason as to WHY i want to fly around the entire galaxy and if I'm going to the centre then why do I need to stop at all the planets why not keep flying.
I'm not sure exactly why but it has been said that you will need to upgrade your ship to make it to the centre and to do that you will need to stop at other planets to gather resources to make money and then upgrade your stuff. (Weapons, ship & suit) Why your first ship cannot make it? I guess it could be many things like how much damage it could take or maybe even fuel limit. Or it might even be that some ships take damage based on the atmosphere. Dunno exactly though, only speculation.
The lead dev has said that there is plenty of combat in the game and that its his preferred way to play, but you can play it as a pacifist too if you like and just explore and soak in the sights and sounds. Objectives include upgrading your ship, armor and weapon by collecting resources. Really looking forward to it.
those aren't objectives though, those are things you do to progress toward the objective....but WHY do I want to upgrade my ship and armor and weapons?
NMS has a league of robots that like to keep the universe in check. When you disrupt things (and you will) they will come after you. You will want to upgrade your ship, armor and weapons to protect yourself against them. Not to mention other players who may want to steal your loot (Not 100% sure if loot stealing is possible but they can no doubt shoot you out of the sky)
I'm excited for this game. I hope everything turns out well. I haven't been reading on it, just patiently waiting
All I want to know is can I kill things or not?
the more i read about this game the more intrigued i am by it. i'll probably end up buying it, if anything just to support the innovation at work here. at bare minimum I'm sure it will be fun, at best it will be one of those games that you play and the hours just disappear without you even noticing.
Need to see more from this game.
Is there any kind of story? This game I hope is as fantastic as it sounds.
I am sold for No Man's Sky since I saw the very first footage of it. Looking forward to it. But the sentence "Later this year" is not a release date.
I hope with my deepest of hopes that they didn't "over-hype" this game like some others I've seen in the past year. o_O
