No Man’s Sky AMA Talks PC Release And FOV Options

No Man's Sky is out today in some territories for PlayStation 4, but us PC bods have to wait till Friday. There's probably contractual reasons for that, but Hello Games are apparently also "racing to get all the extra options and stuff" into the PC version. That's from a Reddit AMA that developer Sean Murray did late last night, which has information about PC release…

Choo choooo! All aboard the Hype Express, next stop Trailersville. No Man’s Sky [official site] has been blowing its own fanfare for the past few days with a bunch of trailers giving sneak peeks of what you’ll actually be doing in space and on the surface of all those lovely-looking, potentially hazardous planets.

When Is No Man’s Sky Coming Out?

I'm loath to write another No Man's Sky [official site] release date story because those discussions have led to or fed into some particularly damaging and extreme responses. But I'm also part of a community which is curious to play the finished version (and part of the professional community who need to know timings for reviews) and see what the game is like. As such,…

New No Man’s Sky Trailer Explores Trading

No Man's Sky [official site] is a big game set in a massive universe. As release approaches, we're learning about all of the things we can do in that universe, and they're all of the things we've been doing in big space games since Elite arrived in 1984. Exploring, fighting and trading. The latter is covered in the video below, which shows the actual swapsies…

Dutch Company’s Questions To No Man’s Sky About ‘Superformula’ Used To Generate Planets

Upcoming exploration sim No Man's Sky [official site] could be using a "superformula" which already belongs to a company in the Netherlands to generate its alien worlds, according to a Dutch newspaper. While the claim is still being looked into, it comes as the developers enter the final stretch before its release on August 12th.

Surface To Air Laser Fights: No Man’s Sky

When I first heard about No Man's Sky [official site], I wanted to jump straight into a spaceship and explore infinite procedural planets. I wanted to look at all of the creatures in their infinite variety and I wanted to spend an infinite amount of time doing...well, what exactly? Observing? Collecting? Discovering? No Man's Sky looked like a game in need of some verbs. What…

Rumour: No Man’s Sky Delayed

"Psst. Psst!" Oh lord, here is again, Ian Video Games come to disturb your quiet afternoon pint. He shoots you a wink and sidles up. "No Man's Sky?" he asks, leaning in to tapping his nose conspiratorially. "NOT Man's Sky more like! Wait... NO Man's Sky more like! Wait. I mean... NONE Man's Sky? LATER Man's Sky! If you catch my drift." The latest juicy…

Flash Bang Wallop! Nvidia Ansel’s Screenshot Tools

Nvidia have unveiled their next top-end GPU, the GeForce GTX 1080, which they say can draw lots of really nice pictures really fast. Look, I'm sure Jeremy and his Week in Tech will have more to say about that soon, but what's interesting to me is the software they announced alongside it. Nvidia Ansel will let people take fancier screenshots, pausing the action to rearrange…

Explore The Universe In Norman’s Sky

That Norman's Sky game you're always telling me about - you do know it's out now, don't you? The one with a procedurally-generated universe to explore in a dinky spaceship, taking off from planets to point at the stars and leaping into hyperspace to see where you end up? Yeah, it's out mate. For free. I thought you'd be a bit more excited about it.…

No Man’s Sky Soundtrack Details And Taster Track

We don't often cover game music news on RPS, because there's always the terrifying risk that it opens the door to more people sending us press releases about their chiptune albums inspired by Zelda. But I'm flexing the informal rule today, partly because No Man's Sky remains so much of an unknown quantity even just two and half months from release, and partly because I…

No Man’s Sky Blasting Off On June 21st, Priced At £40

When our Pip recently explored a corner of the procedurally-generated universe of No Man's Sky [official site], almost dying of cold then getting in trouble with the space-National Trust, developers Hello Games had a fifty-metre thing in the middle of the room. Covered with a shimmering velvet curtain and guarded by a 32-piece marching band, the cloaked object hummed, buzzed, roared, and occasionally released bees.…

No Man’s Sky Leak Hints $60 Pre-Orders Start Tomorrow

Graham: Adam! Adam! Yesterday a listing on the US PlayStation blog appeared suggesting that No Man's Sky [official site] pre-orders are due to start tomorrow, the 3rd of March, and that on PlayStation at least the game would cost $60. That seems like the price of a videogame to me, but other people are upset. How much would you pay for a functionally infinite galaxy…

No Man’s Survival: The Solus Project’s Looking Good

It's probably not fair to either game to invoke No Man's Sky when talking about upcoming sci-fi survival offering The Solus Project [official site], but both the reddish-pink colour palette and the heavy use of tricorders (let's not kid ourselves, eh?) does put me in mind of Hello Games' newbie. The Solus Project is billed as a survival game, but more in the classical sense…

No Man’s Sky Set For June 2016, Contains Rutger Hauer

Yesterday, in front of a packed crowd of Sony PlayPeople, an exciting new space video announced that No Man's Sky [official site] would be launching in June 2016. A quick calendar consultation will confirm that June 2016 is not as near as you might have hoped but, despite the PS4 focus of the event, there's no reason to believe that the confirmation of a same-day…

Not Man’s Sky: A Quartet Of Procedural Planety Things

Look, I know what we said about No Man's Sky and hype and all that, but this isn't about that. Stop pointing hissing "Hypocriiite" at me and howling like Donald Sutherland at the end of Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Give over. I'm trying to show you nice things. Sheesh. Today I bring you a quartet of things showing pleasing procedurally-generated spacebits, two directly inspired…
