Hello Games, the developers behind the incredibly ambitious No Man’s Sky seemed to have caused some confusion with their presentation back at E3. The game was shown off during Sony’s press conference and therefore led to a lot of people thinking the game was a PS4 exclusive title. Some media have also reported it in the same way, as exclusive to the PS4, but at no point have Hello Games ever actually made that statement.
Yesterday a concerned fan questioned the exclusivity over Twitter, referring specifically to a PC version. Hello Games responded by pointing out their original statement from E3, that made no mention of an exclusive, which read – ‘No Man’s Sky is having its console debut on PS4.’ Lets not forget that Hello Games is a very small team of just 10 developers so making multiple versions of the game is a lengthy process, but it seems likely that once the PS4 version is released, the team could well move on to other versions such as PC or even Xbox One. For such an enormous, ambitious game, it would be strange to see it confined to a single console and I personally always assumed that it would be coming at least to the PC in the future.
Though we’ve seen a decent amount of No Man’s Sky in action, its still not all that clear what the general gameplay will be like, and that’s because Hello Games haven’t really revealed too much so far. For a game that will be all about exploration and sharing your unique experiences with other players, its no surprise that Hello Games are fairly cautious about revealing too much. The main thing worth pointing out though, that Hello Games have talked about in an interview with Eurogamer, is that the game will indeed feature a lot of combat. You will very rarely find other players in such a huge universe so survival will be key and there are plenty of threats out in the game. There will also be NPC factions to meet which may be hostile or friendly and can even provide allies to fight alongside, as we saw in the E3 trailer.
The fact that every single person playing the game will have a different experience is something that could be truly revolutionary and exciting, providing Hello Games can pull it off. There’s still no word on a release date but hopefully over upcoming months, we’ll get to hear a few more details about what to expect from the game and we will of course bring you all the latest news.
