We are lucky to be gamers at this time. Why? Well because we get to see technology develop and amazing new ideas hatch. Ok so exploration and sci-fi are not exactly new ideas, but No Man’s Sky takes it to a whole new level.
In Skyrim you could see that distant location and in most cases visit it. Climbing that distant mountain, visiting that far off city. In No Man’s Sky this is taken a little bit further, as you are able to explore the oceans, then surface and see that mountain miles away and go climb it. After you have finished with the mountain you can look up at the stars… not just to relax either. Pick one, because you can go there too.
That’s right – there is a universe waiting to be explored, in a procedurally generated environment.
I think the video can speak for itself from this point onwards, and expect us to be following No Man’s Sky with great interest.
