I didn’t know what to expect from my first planet. Part of me hoped it would be an awesome beach with some amazing lifeforms that I wouldn’t want to leave. The planet I crash landed on wasn’t exactly an island paradise. Instead, it was a radioactive rock, rich with vegetation without much life. A red sky hovered above me as I got my bearings. One thing you should know going in is that the game doesn’t tell you anything. The robotic voice in your helmet is the only voice indicating what you need to fix/fuel but that’s about it. No Man’s Sky very much throws you to the wolves.
