No Man’s Sky is a space exploration game by Hello Games, it was debuted during the Sony Press Conference at E3 2014. It will be coming to both PS4 and PC at some point in the (hopefully) not too distant future, with no word on a XBox One release as of yet.
The wonderful people over at IGN will be revealing information about No Man’s Sky over the course of this month. But here’s what we’ve seen so far…
18 minutes of moment-to-moment gameplay of No Man’s Sky
We’ve been told much about the scope of this game, but this video really encapsulates everything that we’ve been told and puts it into one stellar 18 minute video clip. I could attempt to summarise it here, but I would not do it justice. This is going to be a phenomenal game, I still have my doubts as to just how gripping it will be, but so far everything they have shown boasts a uniqueness that no other game can claim thus far. I know you’re busy, but do yourself a favour and just watch it.
An explanation on the economy
The economy of a video game is something that I, personally have a lot of fun with. The final 6 or so months of my World of Warcraft career was spent as little more than a gold tycoon (much to the joy of my guild mates [Sky Golems for all] and eventually the hackers who managed to get into my account and pinch the near gold capped amount I had on my Paladin *sigh*) and this section of the game really appeals to me, without even playing it yet I can see myself fitting into the resource gatherer playerbase and it really pleases me to see the guys from Hello Games supporting this sort of thing for the players like me, who are not entirely set on being a space pirate, nor an explorer. I know what you’re thinking, and the answer is yes, I do sit in the corner on my phone at parties. Regardless of that, this video gives a great insight into how the trading system will work in No Man’s Sky.
That is all we’ve been given for now! You can see the videos over on IGN’s YouTube page or we here at OKHQ will be wrapping the videos up each week with our own personal takes on each video.
Until next time, friends.
Keep watching the skies!
