You saw the first of these with our Exocraft rework, with Abyss and with Visions. And so here we are, nearly a year later, with the results. The chance to truly experience an alien world, to be totally lost in these strange lands — it was an utterly perfect fit for the dream at the heart of our game. The chance was there to do something very special which could set a new benchmark for VR. Meanwhile, the multiplayer team had conceived of a whole new social hub — The Nexus — which enables you to meet up with friends VR and non-VR alike , explore together, build bases together, complete missions together and much much more. Every time we played together, we could feel how much it brought to the experience.
BEYOND: INTRODUCING UPDATE 2.0
No Man's Sky is an exploration survival game developed and published by the indie studio Hello Games. The game is built around four pillars: exploration, survival, combat, and trading. Players are free to perform within the entirety of a procedurally generated deterministic open world universe, which includes over 18 quintillion planets. Through the game's procedural generation system, planets have their own ecosystems with unique forms of flora and fauna , and various sentient alien species may engage the player in combat or trade within planetary systems. Players advance in the game by mining for resources to power and improve their equipment, buying and selling resources using credits earned by documenting flora and fauna, and otherwise seeking out the mystery around the Atlas, an entity at the center of the galaxy. The founder of Hello Games, Sean Murray, had wanted to create a game that captured the sense of exploration and optimism of science fiction writings and art of the s and s with No Man's Sky. The game was developed over three years by a small team at Hello Games with promotional and publishing help from Sony Interactive Entertainment.
