Default No Man's Sky




"A science-fiction game set in an infinite procedurally generated universe."

Quote:
No Man's Sky is an upcoming science fiction video game developed and published by Hello Games. It will feature a procedurally generated open world.

Announced at VGX 2013 alongside a trailer, the game is seen to feature planetary exploration, deep oceans, space-based battles, and potential predators on the various procedurally-generated worlds. Each world has its own ecosystem with potentially unforgiving conditions, such as desert worlds with large carnivorous worms.

Players are initially given a totally uncharted universe to explore, where information about any planet's characteristics and lifeforms may be shared and updated with others.

^ I think it is. I wouldn't really mind though, why would you want to have a whole universe to yourself?

This. I would just like to get into a spaceship and fly...

Even though the trailer and concept blew me away, I just hope they can make the gameplay interesting enough. In theory these "infinite" universes sound spectacular, but it's quite easy for the game to become boring after the first hour or so. They need a way to provide lots of surprises for the player, and thinks to do. Cities, caves, interplanetary colonies, intragalactic colonies, wars between colonies, treasure hunts... They need to work hard to get to that point where you load the game and there's always something new and exciting for the player to discover.

But what we've seen so far looks fantastic. The visuals are simply stunning! Can't wait to get my hands on it!

So I'm guessing it's online only, which ties into this

might be a dumb question, but is the game generating new planets on its own, or is the development team always going to be adding more stuff into the game?

Apparently random planets and species will appear based on a set of random characteristics, and when a player discovers them they'll be archived for the rest of the players to find. Or so I've read.
