No Man's Sky Exploration Trailer Tries To Break Down What You Actually Do

Just what even is No Man’s Sky? That’s what a bunch of new videos are hopefully going to answer, tackling the four key tenets of Hello Games’ space epic - Explore, Trade, Fight, Survive. From the sounds of it that just makes it a prettier Elite, but have a gander at the No Man’s Sky exploration trailer to see just what sets it apart.

I don’t know about you but I feel none the wise after all that. There’s a heck of a lot of planets, a bunch of crazy creatures we’ve not seen before, and plenty of strange alien artifacts. And then I saw a two-tailed deer, which in the context of interstellar travel would be an extremely disappointing find.

No Man’s Sky is launching on August 9th in North America, and August 10th in the UK and Europe, for PC and PlayStation 4.

If this game is half of anything that was shown by now, It will be the best game (imo) that I ever played.

Interesting, I really hope this game works out. I do have a hard time paying 60 bucks for any game, but if this game does well the first week, I may just have to pull the trigger.

I thought the point was to explore and try to draw phallic symbols on planets that will disappear after you leave the draw distance

Thanks for the link but if you can't be bothered with reading it all (Like me), then just take a look at this video.

lol the lady in the video makes an interesting point about your chances of encountering another player...... if my math is right, if the game manages to sell 100 million copies, and every single one of them is playing at the same time.... your chance of seeing another person is 1 in 184 billion.

Yes this was something i was wondering too. Can you build? is there a base of operations where you continue research on animals? i'm missing the objective in this game etc. game seems beautiful but procedural or not flying around, taking snapshots of animals and killing some AI might get boring very quickly. atleast for me.

I have always believed in "quality over quantity". That's why I'm quite sceptical towards this game, but we'll see soon how it turns out.

Mind that the game is not supposed to weight more than 6 or 7Gb, being countinuously generated. Well, nice in a way, on could even use his SSD to run it, but I wonder the impact it'll have on spec requierements. Continuous generation of envirronement might be tough on ram.

Good thing about RAM is it's relatively cheap, and most boards in use today can hold atleast 16GB of it.... though someone with a lower end laptop might find themselves at a disadvantage.... if they could get this game to run at all in the first place that is.
