About No Man’s Sky
No Man’s Sky is an upcoming science fiction video game developed and published by Hello Games. It will feature a procedurally generated open world.
Announced at VGX 2013 alongside a trailer, the game is seen to feature planetary exploration, deep oceans, space-based battles, and potential predators on the various procedurally-generated worlds. Each world has its own ecosystem with potentially unforgiving conditions, such as desert worlds with large carnivorous worms.
Players are initially given a totally uncharted universe to explore, where information about any planet’s characteristics and lifeforms may be shared and updated with others.
