No Man’s Sky is possibly the most hyped game of this year. The news about No Man’s Sky is literally all over the place. But still, for those who don’t know, No Man’s Sky is an action adventure game developed by Hello Games. The game is diverse, with over 18 quintillion planets to explore. The plants, animals, and planets in the game are procedurally generated, meaning that the game is full of surprises about which even the developers don’t know about. No Man’s Sky also features great action in the form of space dogfights. You can watch No Man’s Sky’s dogfight gameplay here, by the way.
No Man’s Sky is in development since 2010. The man behind No Man’s Sky, Sean Murray, sold his house to start a studio called Hello Games. Their first game was Joe Danger. And now, their second game, No Man’s Sky, is coming today.
No Man’s Sky PC and PS4 Universes Won’t be Linked, Confirms Sean Murray
Recently, in his Reddit AMA, Sean Murray was asked: “Will PS4 and PC Universes be linked in any way?”. He replied:
“PS4 and PC players are using two different servers. We are running a control experiment to see who names things the most juvenile things… Let the games begin!”
As you can read, Sean Murray has confirmed that No Man’s Sky PC and PS4 universes won’t be linked. Both games use different servers. If both platforms run the game from different servers, this means that if you name a planet in the console universe, it won’t be named on PC too.
Sean Murray also cracked a funny joke. Well, most people will give planets strange names. With all this hype, it seems like No Man’s Sky is going to be a stunner. The game launches on the PlayStation 4 today. On August 12, No Man’s Sky releases on the PC.
