Remember back in the day when everyone would get very excited when a game had “gone gold” because that meant it was heading off to mass production and would be in our hands soon?
Look at all those happy, tired faces!
No Man’s Sky was first revealed way back at E3 2014 and has captivated and frustrated fans ever since, with many rumoured release dates slipping past uneventfully. It was only in March this year the game received an official release date.
And even then, a month away from release, the game was delayed by another six weeks. So to see it finally ready to go out into the world is a distinct relief.
No Man’s Sky is an open galaxy exploration and adventure game, with players being free to travel between planets and star systems, collecting resources, encountering strange new lifeforms and with the vague goal of reaching the centre of the galaxy.
You know, if you even need a goal in a game with 18,446,744,073,709,551,616.
No Man’s Sky is scheduled for release on the 9th of August in the US and the 10th of August everywhere else.
