About

No Man's Sky is a space action-adventure survival game developed by Hello Games. The overall visual style of the game is inspired by various science fiction books. Demoscene also served as a source of inspiration for the developers. The main feature that the game revolves around is the procedural generation. Each planet you visit is generated from scratch. The information about the planets and their inhabitants is dynamically updated so every player can discover a new species or planet and give it a name. No Man's Sky gameplay implies the exploration of space and planets some of which are inhabited with extra-terrestrial life, gathering resources, space battles, maintaining and upgrading the player's ship and completing bounty hunting missions. The main objective is to reach the center of the galaxy. On release, it was stated that the game is in fact multiplayer, but the size of its world is so big that the probability of meeting another player is extremely small. It turned out that it is impossible to meet any other player due to the extremely limited multiplayer aspect. As of 2018, Hello Games released the fourth major update which included the full multiplayer experience.

No Man's Sky reviews and comments

Translated by

No Man's Sky NEXT-For me the Yes Man's Sky! No Man's Sky is now a Household name for almost every Player. A Term that has to do with and also recalls a very negative Side to the video game story. Advocally, the PR around this Title before and at the Time of the Day of Publication was more than irritating, not clearly defined and poorly executed. I've been with No Man's Sky since Day 1 (GOG.com) and I've been a Fan of it all since time immemorial. But Since THERE are a few Problems with the multiplayer part of NEXT at GOG, I decided to strike now in the Steam Sale. The Game is like an old Desire for children for me, a dream From Children's Days. A Traveller in unknown Space. Even if the Game left a lot to be desired in Depth, it was still an interesting and technically impressive Product. There was a lot to discover and visually the Style picked me up straight. Unfortunately at some point the Air was out for me and I turned to other Games. Respable is the Point Hello Games just hasn't given up and diligently expanded the Game the first Year after Release with impressive content updates like Foundation or Atlas Rises. Content Packages for which other developer firms would have loosely demanded typical DLC package prices. Hello Games continued to work almost in Silence to further expand its project out of Passion. Now the first Milestone has been reached ... ... 2 Years after the official Release. With NEXT, No Man's Sky is being reworked and expanded to such an extent that the Game could actually be classified as Part 2. There are not only impressive visual Upgrades, but also many new gameplay mechanics, quality of life features and heaps of new Variations to discover in Planets, Ships, Flora and Fauna. Thanks to the previously introduced Storyline, the Trip is of course even more Fun. A multiplayer mode is finally available (4-Player coop), a very extensive construction mode as well as an already quite extensive Adaptation of your own Alter ego. It feels like a Whole new, better, bigger gaming Experience even to me as a veteran. And it's damn fun again and looks great. How Long-term Fun Motivates, time will tell. But you quickly find-There's a lot of work to be done. Hello Games, Thank you for your hard Work. Thank you for not dropping the Project. Thank You for listening carefully to the Feedback from the Community and for putting many Suggestions into practice. Thank you for breathing new Life into the Game that triggers the childish explorer joy in me. I wish the Game and Hello Games a successful Future! No Man's Sky gets a clear Recommendation from me! (Hey I think this is real My first Steam Review!)

I didn't get to play the old version. It must have been terrible. Fortunately the developers took notice and the latest version is much better and meets most of the features said to be missing in the old version. Have another go.
The new NMS has several play modes. If you want to battle you can. If you want quests they are available. If you want to build lavish palaces you can do that too. If you want multiplayer you can switch that on. Audio or typed chat works.

«Underrated»
Promising and impressive at first, but soon (for me, after a playtime of about 5 hours) the man behind the curtain reveals himself: There's 18 quintillion planets - and they all feel the same. An impressive tech demo, for sure, but not much game is to be had here.

I *would* play the game they showed in that gameplay trailer that made me buy it on launch day. It's not this.
«Waste of time»
Soooo boring, gets super repetitive after 5 hours of story. Sucks that there is no multiplayer. I hate the game.
