The upcoming 'No Man's Sky' will will be released in PS4 this coming June. The upcoming indie (?) game from Hello Games will have a total of 18 quintillion worlds, that if you spend your whole life playing the game, you will still not be able to explore all of its worlds. Since the deal between PlayStation and Hello Games is just for a year, can we expect No Man's Sky in Xbox, PC, and VR head gears?
Here's the latest on 'No Man's Sky' release date, news, and updates.
No Man's Sky Platforms
According to Game Rant, Chris Charla (Xbox Director) hinted of a possible 'No Man's Sky' released on Xbox One. According to the article;
Chris Charla, the director of ID@Xbox, has recently said the he "would love to see" No Man's Sky on the Xbox One. Charla was speaking on The Inner Circle podcast, and revealed that a workaround for the launch parity clause could be found if Hello Games wanted to discuss a Xbox One release.
Previously, Kenny Mc Donnell of Movie Pilot suggested that maybe the reason for the 'delays' is because Sony is prepping for 'No Man's Sky' to be released alongside their upcoming VR headgear, the Project Morpheus. While this is a very tantalizing prospect, it would mean that fans of 'No Man's Sky' would have to wait longer before they can start discovering planets at the comfort of their homes.
The article also revealed that Sean Murray (Hello Games Founder and Programmer for 'No Man's Sky') sold his house to fund his company-now that's dedication. The good news is; it seems like Sean Murray's efforts will be paid soon, as tons of people are anticipating the upcoming 'No Man's Sky'.
Most recently, Gamesradar had an interview with Sean Murray. In the interview, they asked Sean Murray if 'No Man's Sky' will be available in the upcoming VR headsets and his indirect answers seems to point out to "yes". The reply he has given was, "I don't know what I'm allowed to say, it's something we're thinking about. Morpheus, Oculus... There's nothing more cool and sci-fi than VR and a big procedural universe. I think that, for the people who want to just explore, and even for the space combat and things like that, it would be a good fit. Let's put it that way."
Just the fact that he says, "I don't know what I'm allowed to say", already screams "yes".
No Man's Sky Gameplay
When it comes to the new information about the gameplay of 'No Man's Sky'; it is revealed by Sean Murray back in E3 2015, that only few of the planets might be discovered since there a ton of them. He added that some planets might actually be left undiscovered.
PlayStationLifeStyle added that there are a total of 5 planets are featured in the latest video of 'No Man's Sky'. These planets are called; Kushimasho, Imilyanovor-Kai, Habik-Ogan, Notogertasi and Iiamchiame.
In the video, the planet Kushimasho is a planet with heavy rains and exotic wildlife which is quite dangerous. However it is planets like these that can be a source of high-valued discoveries.
According to Hello Games, the harsher the environment, the more profitable the quest; however it is advisable to gear up with a space suit first before going out to these planets in order to keep yourself safe.
The second planet is called, Imilyanovor-Kai, is very water-based; whilst there's land it is advisable to explore the oceans instead.
The third planet is called, Habik-Ogan which is a planet that is rich with resources where you can mine minerals and crystals.
The fourth planet is called, Nogotertasi this planet is where explorers can trade.
And last, but not the least the planet called Iiamchiame, which is a rocky planet
