Space and land-based combat in a procedural world.

Hello Games has released the first three screenshots of No Man’s Sky, its procedurally generated open world sci-fi game announced at VGX this weekend.

Several publications—including Joystiq, Polygon, Eurogamer, and Rock, Paper, Shotgun—have gone live with first look previews. Here are some noteworthy bullets from the Polygon preview:

  • The game involves space combat, exploration, and resource gathering, but is not really about any of those things individually.
  • There will also be land-based combat.
  • The game was part of the company’s plan when it was initially set up.
  • Players can make significant changes to the places that they visit that endure for other players.
  • Players begin the game in the universe’s outer perimeter, and are invited to move toward the center.
  • There is plenty of combat and peril in this universe.
  • No decision has been finalized on the game’s release date or platforms.

    For which platforms?

    • DarthBrian

      PS4/Xbone/PC I assume.

    • Nick Pantazis

      It says in the article that they haven’t decided yet. I’m sure the engine is built on PC and PC is pretty likely. Where it finally ends up may ultimately depend on funding (does some company offer them extra money? Do they do a kickstarter and put platforms as stretch goals? etc.).

    Looks gorgeous. Day one for the inevitable PS4 version.

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    This game sounds almost too good to be true.

      Robotech Crystal Dreams felt the same way in 1996. Six months to travel from one end of space to the other. On an N64.

      Then it was canceled
