No Man’s Sky is a game about exploration and survival in an infinite procedurally generated galaxy.

Inspired by classic science-fiction and its overwhelming sense of adventure and imagination, Hello Games presents a game of unprecedented scale and ambition. In No Man’s Sky you explore an infinite universe where you will discover unique never-before-seen planets and lifeforms. A mystery lies at the centre of the galaxy, an irresistible pulse that draws you on an epic voyage to discover the true nature of the cosmos. Your journey will be charged with danger, encountering hostile creatures and fierce pirates; in order to survive, you will need to prepare, upgrading your ship, suit and weapons. Whether you choose to fight, trade or explore, every decision you make has consequences, shaping your journey as you travel ever deeper into No Man's Sky.

GAME FEATURES

A TRULY OPEN UNIVERSE If you can see it, you can go there. You can fly seamlessly from the surface of a planet to another, and every star in the sky is a sun that you can visit.
EXPLORATION IS SEEING THINGS THAT NO-ONE ELSE HAS EVER SEEN BEFORE Every creature, geological formation, plant and spaceship is unique.
SURVIVE ON A DANGEROUS FRONTIER You are alone and vulnerable, and will face threat everywhere, from deep space to thick forests, barren deserts to dark oceans.
BUILD FOR AN EPIC JOURNEY Collect precious materials and trade them for better spacecraft and upgrades for your suit and equipment and prepare for your journey to the centre of the galaxy.
A SHARED UNIVERSE Choose to share with other players your discoveries on a map of the galaxy. Strike out for unexplored frontiers or build your strengths in known space.
65DAYSOFSTATIC SOUNDTRACK Our favourite band, 65daysofstatic, is producing a soundtrack album especially for No Man's Sky, which will be featured in the game as a procedurally generated soundscape.

Agreed, not knocking the price. I'm sure it's the lowest for a new copy so far.

Just expect, "I wouldn't buy this even if it was 1p" type comments

tempted but what I have read I'm still hoping it comes around the £10 mark.

"No Man's Sky is a game"

Waiting till it's free on psn.

Only brave people post NMS deals and live to tell about it. Heat for the price defo.

I bought it on release, played it and enjoyed it solidly for a week and then sold it for slightly more than I bought it for. Will be tempted to get back into it at some point, but not sure this is that point. Good deal but I'll hold off until it's around £15 for a digital copy.

If this is free on PS+ before knack, there will be riots

I wouldn't buy this even if it was 1p!

Heat added btw, excellent price!

That price is very tempting especially with the recent content they have added.

I'm happy to wade in with the "the only thing wrong with this game was people's expectations"... ^_~

Good price, surprised it has not dropped even more considering the many deals over black friday & xmas on games that were released much later.

They have added recent content to this. Could be worth a look now maybe. Tempted.

Good deal, bad game.

But the developer did contribute in setting people's expectations though

Since the Foundation update this is hugely improved and easily one of these most serene exploration and material farming games out there. If you like high octane shooting action, avoid it. Want to chill out an enjoy the vistas? Buy it.

I saw the Foundation update was released on the Steam version, has it also been released on PS4?

I was waiting for this to hit £10 too before giving it a go. Foundation update is supposed to vastly improve things.

What is the objective of the game so to speak?

tempting really tempted to get this



I don't get the hate. It looks a really fun and unique game

Ironically, it's about rightly priced now. Heat. Not a terrible game, just a massive let down.

Always been tempted by this game. Think the concept of first person getting into a space ship, hitting the atmosphere and put into space, only to land on another planet is a game of dreams. Imagine a online battlefront with this concept (say 1 world and a battle station) with 100 players in one match. This is where gaming needs to be, not this silly upscaled 4K or on the horizon joke of 8k.

I got it a while ago and while I haven't played it that much, every time I do play it I end up getting lost in it for a few hours without realising where the time has gone. It can be quite repetitive and there's not much in the way of actual gameplay but despite that it's provided some of my favourite organic gaming moments ever.

I once ventured into one of the expansive cave systems greedily mining gold (which I foolishly thought would be valuable). As I ventured deeper and deeper into the cave a niggling feeling told me I should probably turn back, but every time I scanned the terrain I would see another bunch of gold in the distance. Eventually, after about half an hour of this I decided enough was enough and I tried to find my way back to my ship. I followed the waypoint but every time I got near I could see the waypoint above me about 10 metres away but couldn't find a way out of the caves.

I was probably running around for at least 15 minutes trying to find a way out with no luck. I really didn't know what to do. I couldn't remember if you switched the game off and came back to it if you spawned in the same place or not. I thought I'd ruined my playthrough and would have to start over completely. But then I suddenly had a vague recollection of a mining tool upgrade I'd unlocked a while ago that said something about destroying terrain. I checked my upgrade options and luckily I had enough of the correct resources on my ship (that I could access through the cave wall) to build the plasma grenade upgrade. I then blasted my way to freedom and to be honest although it probably sounds a bit rubbish, that was a great gaming experience and there aren't many other games that could create that sort of organic gaming experience.

For those that are on the fence about this game, give it a go. You might just like it.


tl;dr

I have similar feelings and also played it quite a lot when I got it.

I also had a similar idea of going off for a walk on foot and I ended up 45 minutes away from my ship with a toxic storm starting - I had to keep hiding in caves etc until the storms had passed. My idea was to find one of those portals that returns your ship to you but after walking for ages I could't find one and just had to keep going. I then got attacked by some mental bear type thing and for a while NMS felt really good.

I haven't given up on it yet, I will return soon and try the new base building bits etc.

started it twice & both times the planets had already been discovered. Really spoiled the game for me especially as no matter which new system i travelled to the same player had already been there discovering everything.

It took me 17 planets before i could Discover one for myself.. it was a High Risk High Radiation planet. I died lots looking for one of the 3 fauna that existed there

Tbh I was one of the stupid people who preordered it. The game is worth no more than. £12.99. And because sean went silent on social media and refused to answer questions about the game I still wouldn't buy it.

Reading that I thought I was trapped in a cave trying to get out.

I was on the fence but not now.

The 'hate' probably comes from the fact it looks really fun but from most views I've seen the reality doesn't match. Buy it if you think it looks a really good game but don't imply people are haters until you've at least played it yourself.

QuickProfits

Never played it never wanted to.



I dunno chief, I'm not convinced. Otherwise why would you bother commenting...

I really enjoyed this game, it is different and refreshingly original.

Bought for my son for Christmas at £15 used. Both of us are hooked. Obviously we now have the benefit of the big patch that has addressed some issues with the game. Playing on normal and it's just really chill. I wouldn't normally get into a game like this, but it's properly drawn us both in for reasons we can't really explain. We've sunk hours in and haven't even left our home planets yet.

I like to feel like I am accomplishing something when I play games. I want to do something and then know it has been done and dusted. With randomly generated world's I would never get that satisfaction. It's one of the main reasons I play games. I won't get that from this, that's why it never interested me. Heat added.

It does seem very strange that the PC version isn't reducing by much. Although Steam had it on offer, the price was still way above the £20 mark.
