We all know No Man’s Sky, developed and published by Hello Games’, and how it surprises us every showing with brand new footage and worlds to explore since the game’s world is procedurally generated thus you will never explore it fully.
I can bet safely from this minute and even before this that this game's world is going to set a new bar for developers to reach and it's going to change the whole gaming industry when it releases. I guarantee it and mark my words.
this game's universe*
Thanks for the correction fellow grammar nazi haha :P My mistake
You are most welcome sir.
Actually it's a galaxy ;)
@Johndoe11211 Actually I will have to agree with R00bot since a universe is bigger than a galaxy. A galaxy is inside the universe. Science hahaha
However, when we talk about fantasy and science fiction, we often utilize the word universe: as in the Star Wars Universe or the Lord of the Rings Universe, even though it might only refer to one planet (ie the Forgotten Realms Universe.)
@Mostafeto You're right, I actually had to look that up before replying to your comment, wanted to make sure I was actually correcting it instead of just making it slightly closer to right :P
I'm just ready to get my hands on it, that is all I know.
We all are my friend and we all can't wait but I think an early 2017 release is more realistic if you are talking when will we play it
Indeed, just keeping the game on my radar til it finally pops up! Definitely not demanding a release date ;)
Early 2017??? It will be 2016 at the latest. It was supposed to release this year.
Me too. When I first play and discover my first planet: I am uploading the vid to Youtube with the title: No Man's Sky, My First Planet.
Great idea! Will be interesting to compare discoveries with other youtubers too! Endless possibilities :)
So the game is procedurally generated with lots and lots of variables? We get it Shaun! I like what they're doing in terms of procedural generation, but at this stage I think everyone understands this aspect of the game. Each planet will be unique amoung billions others, but that's simply the nature of procedurally generation. Throw an area large enough together, with enough variables, an indeed no gameplay experience will be the same. Given that I imagine everyone understands this aspect of the game already, it's a shame it's being continually repeated a news. I'm very excited for the game but would love to hear much more about it's gameplay systems than I would read another interview expressing it's sheer size.
you aren't paying attention - ign had 2 vids last week doing just what you ask.
I've seen them. It's great to see stuff like that, but this is an interview I've read 100 times over. Heck, this isn't even the direct source, it's an article, about an interview with the guardian. Everything said in the guardians interview has also been said before. Here's the actual article. http://www.theguardian.com/... So I'm not even sure why this news even exists, wrong source is listed. Either way, it's the same interview he's been dispensing to journalists for the last 4 months. That's boring, in my opinion.
On the subject of watching gameplay demos, I liked the way they did the E3 demo . They don't want to hype the game up like others. It's just like 'this is what it would normally be like to play'
You cannot believe how much of a relief it is to hear that. I'm trying my best to go full media blackout on this game and keep as much of it a surprise as possible but it's just so damn interesting
I want to be hyped for this game, but every bit of gameplay shown always looks dull. So what if I can go to a bazillion procedural planets and look at fish? The space combat they've shown is basic looking and worse than current games. I'll probably play it for a few days anyway.
$5 steam sale for me atm that's my offer.
I hope the world is populated enough to make it worth exploring, if not it will get boring fast.
I'm still not sold. While the world's looked big, I'm not convinced on the environment details. And the destruction structure theyd shown at e3 need a bit of work.
