No Man’s Sky looks incredible, and it’s coming to PS4. There’s still no release date as of yet, but the gameplay trailer shows a lot of promise. Its developer, Hello Games, is comprised of only four people, yet No Man’s Sky looks to be an enormous, beautiful game with boundless opportunities for exploration and multiplayer play.
The in-game universe is procedurally generated, meaning it contains a virtually limitless number of worlds to journey to. In this universe, players can discover new species of animals on distant planets, fly from planet to planet in their own spacecraft, and battle other space travellers. The variation shown within levels was just as impressive, with the gameplay trailer showing tropical forests, craggy deserts and hectic space battles.
Even space is not limited to being solely black; atmosphere from nearby planets and light from stars add colour to the space environment, keeping the game’s vibrant colours constant wherever they are.
Each player will start on a different planet, but will have the ability to meet up and adventure together once they have mastered space travel. There’s dinosaurs, explosions, spacecraft – everything you need to feel like a little kid again.
I can’t wait.
