No Man's Sky Is Out Now On PC

No Man’s Sky is out now. You can now get the procedural galaxy-’em-up from Steam and Humble. There was no pre-loading for the game available though, so expect Steam’s servers to be slow while everyone starts downloading those 18 quintillion planets.

Yes, I know that the game being procedural means that you are not literally downloading the planets. No Man’s Sky’s total filesize is considerably smaller than many of its peers; just 6GB on PS4.

The game’s release on PlayStation earlier this week has allowed John some time to play it ahead of its arrival on PC. You can read his No Man’s Sky impressions if you want some sense of the reality of the game after all the trailers and excitement these past few years.

John will now be playing the game on PC, with the aim to prepare a proper PC review to go up on the site sometime on Monday. We didn’t receive advanced review code so this is the best we can do.

Disclosure: Our Alec did some last-minute writing for No Man’s Sky. He won’t write about the game for us any more.
