One of the most impressive indie games to come out of last year’s E3 was Hello Games’ No Man Sky – and it delivered on its promise of a space sim on a truly epic scale when it returned to LA this year.
From the variety in gameplay – combat, trading and exploration both on the ground and up in space – to the genuinely mind-boggling size of the universe players will inhabit, No Man’s Sky seems set to offer an incredibly deep and long-lasting space adventure.
The aim of the game is to reach the centre of the galaxy, and players who work their way towards it will uncover all manners of new lifeforms and planets. First to discover it? Upload your findings and enjoy letting the next explorer know when he touches down. Seamlessly transitioning from space flight to planet surface, this is a title that wants you to pick a star and see what’s out there.
