Since its launch last week, No Man’s Sky has been trending on all Social Media Platforms. The early trailers and development news of this space exploration game has got people going bananas over it.
The team at Hello Games and Sony have created a space so big that it would take 10 years to discover every single planet if everyone on earth discovered 500 planets per minute. That won’t paint the whole picture? Okay, there are Eighteen Quintillion (18 Billion Billion) planets waiting to be discovered, 18,446,744,073,709,551,616 to be exact. It is so freakishly large that the development team built Virtual Probes to explore the cosmos and search for problems.

So what is No Man’s Sky all about?
In a nutshell, It’s an impossibly huge universe game with planets to be explored and mysteries to uncover. Each player starts off on a unique planet and has to scavenge for tools to repair his spaceship. Note that No Man’s Sky is not a multiplayer, the chances of minuscule.
Your primary goal is to get to the center of the universe whilst scrambling for resources, battling the Sentinel forces, facing off space pirates. Each world is filled with mysterious flora and fauna, which you can name once discovered. So dive under water through the deepest trenches and hike across the highest mountains to be the very best like no one ever was, Wait, that sounds familiar. Each planet has its own unique wildlife and varied landscapes and weather. While few are warm and welcoming, most are lonely, hostile and unforgiving. Talking about landscapes, it is drop dead gorgeous.
The core of No Man’s Sky is survival, and as most of the games, the inventory slot annoyance is no exception here. However, the gameplay does get monotonous after first few hours. Infinite Space is truly indeed a lonely place. The basic gameplay becomes repetitive, the planets start looking little familiar, of course, it is impossible to handcraft a quintillion planets. The game is stupendously wide but isn’t very deep.
However, No Man’s Sky does live up to its hype to an extent. It seems to be ahead of its time just like Bethesda were with Arena and Daggerfall. No Man’s Sky is my escape when LoL gets too toxic with 12-year-olds. This game has a lot of potentials and can be a game changer for the Next gen games.
