No Man's Sky



At the recent VGX awards, one of the real standout announcements (in my view, at least) was for Hello Games' upcoming No Man's Sky; a quite ambitious ground, sea, and space exploration game with a massive procedurally-generated universe to play around in.

I find it interesting to see a game with such a strong Elite vibe off of it show up like this, not least since Elite: Dangerous is also in the works. How might the two games compare and contrast in their respective visions of what lies beyond?

EDIT: The official teaser website.

Looks amazing, too bad it didn't make it out already so it would have made a better best indie game instead of boring Gone Home...

Looks promising since there isn't any game out there that seamlessly connect sea - land - space. Definitely keeping my eye out for this game purely out of curiosity for the tech they are using to do this.

Looks amazing, but procedurally generated content is always a hit-or-miss. It's extremely easy to mess it up.

Even if some of the actual places are similar, the concept of just being able to explore all the worlds / places in such a connected way seems really exciting. The trailer obviously took a lot from Star Wars which also helped peak my interest cause it made it seem like awesome space exploration and Star Wars world style.

People who love to explore will love this game. For a specific amount of time I will add. Eventually you'll be seeing the same thing unless somehow they continuously add new planets/systems every day or so.

It's generated procedurally, that means technically it's always adding new planets and stuff. But you're right in that eventually, you'll start to see repeats in the variations. We can only hope they have like a thousand times a thousands possibilities or something But at the same time, we'll probably see some very messed up Alien combinations.

The new gameplay showed space combat, which really makes this the long lost other half of what Destiny could have been.

More than just space combat, they showed off their creature generator which is probably a lot more complicated to program. Still look impressive, hopefully they ll get it done eventually. I think the biggest challenge to this is probably creating a gameplay around the exploration.
