YOUR UNIVERSE AWAITS
Explore a universe of possibilities
With over 18,446,744,073,709,551,616 (18 quintillion) possible planets, No Man’s Sky's procedurally generated galaxy gives players an unparalleled opportunity to explore worlds that no one has ever visited before. Exploration is entirely seamless, with no loading screens, whether you're flying from space to a planet's surface or even warping between solar systems.
Share your discoveries
Everyone starts No Man’s Sky on the outer rim of the same unexplored galaxy. As you progress, you will come across countless undiscovered solar systems, planets, lifeforms and much more. You can choose to share your discoveries with other players, naming them and adding them to the Galactic Map, forever associated with your PSN ID. You may also share the amazing sights you encounter using the PlayStation 4 system’s share functions.
Space combat on a grand scale
Make enemies and forge alliances by joining battles between the factions that occupy the galaxy. Take part in daring raids on trade convoys and audacious attacks on capital ships, claim bounties, and upgrade your weaponry. But be warned: helping one faction may make its enemies yours, too.
EMBARK ON AN EPIC JOURNEY ACROSS AN INFINITE UNIVERSE
Trade your way through the galaxy
Violence is not the only route to success. Discovering rare resources and trading them where they are most valuable will help you amass a fortune you can exchange for upgrades and ships that can carry ever more cargo. The rewards will be great, but you'll run the risk of attracting the attention of ruthless space pirates.
Prepare yourself for exploration
By upgrading your engines, you can travel further and faster, pushing at the frontiers of the known galaxy. Upgrading your suit will help protect you from radiation and extreme environments that would kill the unprepared.
Discover a social galaxy
The galaxy is a living, breathing place, with trade convoys travelling between stars, pirates, police and military ships ever ready for action, and planets teeming with life. The same galaxy is also shared by every player of No Man's Sky. Perhaps you will see the results of their actions, as well as your own?
A mystery lies at the center of the galaxy, an irresistible pulse that draws you on an epic voyage to discover the true nature of the cosmos. Your journey will be charged with danger, encountering hostile creatures and fierce pirates; in order to survive, you will need to prepare, upgrading your ship, suit and weapons.
Whether you choose to fight, trade or explore, every decision you make has consequences, shaping your journey as you travel ever deeper into No Mans Sky. No Man’s Sky is an epic science fiction adventure set across an infinite universe, in which every star is the light of a distant sun, orbited by planets filled with life – each yours to visit. Explore never before seen worlds and trade, fight and survive on a galactic scale.

This was delivered on zero levels... I cringe when the term "procedurally generated" is used in the description of any game. Why? Because that means instead of taking the time to hand-craft a world with life and purpose and intrigue, you've decided to craft thousands of lines of code and let the cold/lifeless/emotionless/unimaginative machine figure out the rest. This is ever present in No Man's Sky. It's a game where you see an odd game mechanic and instantly realize the only reason it exists is so no developer had to actually DO something. It's a Choose Your Own Adventure book with no plot or consequence. It's a game about nothing in a universe where nothing happens. If you're still on the fence, continue reading. If you're preparing to flame me in the comments, I'm glad that you like the game specifically, but I couldn't care less about your counter-arguments.
So, the game about exploration. The spirit of exploration, the very crux of the practice itself, is finding something new and unique.Read more ›
+Endless exploration: Literally endless. If you enjoy just walking around alien planets taking in the sights like I do, naming animals and discovering what's over that next hill, you could play this game forever.
+Awesome, stylistic graphics: Sure, with this big of a sandbox things like pop-in are an issue, but there have been a ton of stunning, "wow" visual moments for me. Being on a planet and looking up into the sky at its moons, or other planets yet to be discovered, still leaves me in awe.
+"Choose your own path" play style: I like to wander and explore planets so I have upgraded my character's items accordingly, but if you want to work towards a ship and weapon built for dealing damage you can do that. Are there limitations? Yes, but in my opinion there's enough variety in tasks and customization to keep me busy for a long, long time (about 20-25 hours before I even felt I hit a variety "wall" that was noticeable). I feel concerns over the amount of content/variety are highly up to preference, and I dig into that more below.
+/- It's more of a video game-based "experience" than a traditional "game." I don't even know what genre I would call it. It's part Minecraft-like sandbox and part exploration-centric "walking simulator," but with a huge emphasis on discovery.Read more ›
-Art Style is very aestetically pleasing
-Flying feels slightly similar to Elite Dangerous except it's more simplified (which means mistakes make you die less often).
-18 Quintillion Planets (well that's what it advertises at least)
-Will maybe, possibly be a good game once they finish it (because there's no way I can see them abandoning their first game in this state)
-I'll start with the biggest con: The game isn't finished. It feels very much like Destiny when it first came out in that you're forced to collect materials/grind by doing the same things over and over again. Only difference is I thought the minute-to-minute gameplay of Destiny was fun so I kept playing; No Man's Sky's minute-to-minute is "land on planet, look for rock, hold trigger while aiming at rock, pick up resources, refuel life support/ammo/space ship, take off, go to next planet, repeat.
-Flying feels slight similar to Elite Dangerous except it's more simplified (Yes this is the game bullet as the one in 'Pros'. It is in the Cons because the simplified flying means that you can't fly all around the solar system, you can't maneuver on the planets, it's basically just flying straight left or right on the planet to get to your destination, very boring)
-Solar systems aren't solar systems. They're sky boxes with planets almost always close to being aligned and the sun is the border of the skybox (meaning you can't fly close to it).
-So far the 30+ planets I visited are almost all reskins of each other.Read more ›
