If you want to see No Man's Sky in action before it releases tomorrow, you're in luck! The courier just handed us a copy, and we will be streaming the game from about 1545 (AET) until we get bored or sleepy.
You can watch on Twitch, via the embed below, or on your PS4 by searching for user mjm5000, or browsing the No Man's Sky category. There are a few other scrubs on there, so look for a stream called "No! Man's Sky!". That's right, we're claiming the sky back from the womenfolk... or something.
According to Hello Games' Sean Murray, here is what No Man's Sky definitely is:
◆ Exploring a universe of pretty procedurally generated worlds, with beautiful creatures
◆ Trading with NPCs
◆ Combat against robots/mechs and cool space battles
◆ Survival/crafting in a universe sized sandbox
◆ An awesome procedural soundtrack from my genuine favourite band (check the NMS album out here)
◆ For one small moment, you might feel like you’ve stepped into a sci-fi book cover
"That means this maybe isn’t the game you *imagined* from those trailers. If you hoped for things like pvp multiplayer or city building, piloting freighters, or building civilisations… that isn’t what NMS is," wrote Murray this morning.
"Over time it might become some of those things through updates. For instance, freighters and building bases *are* coming!"
"At launch though, it’s an infinite procedural sci-fi-space-survival-sandbox unlike anything you have ever played before," he added.
"If you decide to play it, you’ll see just how closely it plays to those trailers, and to our original vision. It’s a weird game, it’s a niche game and it’s a very very chill game."
So, our place, PS4 and chill?
