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.
