Sean Murray, the founder of the No Man’s Sky game has this week worked with PlayStation to release new gameplay footage for the game, ahead of its launch.
No Man’s Sky will provide players with the ability to explore a range of planets around the No Man’s Sky universe, players will be able to jump between galaxies, mine for resources, trade, gain gear, weaponry, ships and a lot more.
No Man’s Sky’s gameplay is built on four pillars—exploration, survival, combat and trading—in which players are free to perform within the entirety of a procedurally generated deterministic open universe, which includes over 18 quintillion (1.8×1019) planets,[a] many with their own set of flora and fauna.
By exploring, players gain information about the planets that they can submit to The Atlas, a universal database that can be shared with other players of the game. Players get compensated in currency every time new information is uploaded to The Atlas. Players also gain materials and blueprints to upgrade their character’s equipment and purchase a variety of starships, allowing them to travel deeper into the center of the galaxy, survive on planets with hostile environments, interact in friendly or hostile manners to computer-controlled space-faring factions, or trade with other ships.
It will be officially launched on June 21st, 2016 for the PS4 and PC by Hello Games.
In the meantime you can check out the new gameplay footage below.
