No Man’s Sky will be launching on PlayStation 4 and PC on June 21, 2016 — just over one month away. Let that soak in for a second. In one month, we will be playing what is arguably the largest and most ambitious game of this generation — if not all time.
Just in case you have been living underground or just returned from an alternate dimension where games cease to exist, No Man’s Sky is a first-person open world survival game set in space. Well, it’s set everywhere really. The “goal” of No Man’s Sky is to make it to the center of the universe — and that requires a lot of space travel, planetary exploration, and adaptation to your surroundings. You could land on a planet with sub-zero temperatures and need to burrow your way underground in order to find shelter from the cold. You could land on a planet inhabited by carnivorous lifeforms hungry for their next meal. Hell, you could not land on any planets and rob space stations across multiple galaxies and become the most notorious space pirate in all the galaxies.
The possibilities No Man’s Sky presents the player with are nearly endless, with 18,446,744,073,709,551,616 (that’s 18 QUINTILLION) planets to explore. Any players hoping to make it to the center of the universe may need to devote a bit of time to the cause.
