No Man's Sky Will Let Us Explore The Universe On June 21

It's one of the most anticipated games of 2016 and it now has a release date.

The PlayStation 4 exclusive title No Man's Sky is set to launch on June 21 in North America, and on June 24 in the UK. Developer Hello Games confirmed the date at a recent press event.

The ambitious space adventure was first unveiled back in 2013 and since then, it has accumulated a serious amount of hype. The strange part is that many still aren't quite sure what to expect, as the gameplay remains a bit of a mystery. We know the premise is exploration and at one point, the developers said there are "18 quintillion procedurally generated planets" to find, which means two players will never see the same things at the same time. If you want more info, check out a recent GameSpot feature that sheds more light on the experience.

You can upgrade your suit, spaceship and weapons, and finding alien races and leaving your mark on uncharted territories sounds intoxicating. Let's just hope is wildly immersive and endlessly interesting, as opposed to empty and boring. We'd love to see how those "quiet moments of discovery" come to fruition in the final product, and the trailers we've seen (like this one) have been awfully promising.

I get the procedure and all that but it just doesn't look like a full price game. Pass until cheap.

I had the same thought. Not sure where I got it from, but I always thought of this as an indie game for $15 (bad assumption, I know). Regardless, I never expected this as a full $60. I'm curious as to whether they upped the price due to all the hype or if that was the initial target.

Empty and boring? You realize you just described space/space travel in the real world. EVE online seems to do just fine and i'm willing to bet quite a few of those players will test this one out. Approach the game with the mindset of an explorer and you will most likely find some enjoyment in it. Will it be a game that consumes every free moment of ones time? Doubtful, but it should be a good game to play to break up other gaming sessions or just to decompress. Games like this require a certain mindset to enjoy.

EVE Online is insanely deep. Based on what I've heard of No Man's Sky, EVE Online has about a thousand times more depth. Really not a good comparison at ALL.

I am not referring to the depth in any way. What i mean is minus out the large scale warfare and you have a similar game. Most of the time in EVE is spent scouting locations or mining, which to most gamers is boring, but someone like me finds enjoyable.

And EVE isn't as in depth as you might think. It is simply setup as a slow paced leveling system where most games allow you to level up extremely fast, it can take months or even years to get the skills one wants in EVE. The depth is more in the economy than anything which almost no games include.

The 2 games are far more similar than you think. And if you don't think so go chat with some EVE players as many of them have used the term EVElite when referring to No Mans Sky.

Edit:
Also if you want a better comparison than go dust off your Dreamcast and play Armada it is nearly identical other than NMS is 3D where Armada was top down. I used EVE because it is a game people would be aware of whereas Armada is a cult classic from the past which i'm betting very few people here played.

I still respect the idea for being like an updated NES game where we can explore space even if it isn't exciting.
