No Man’s Sky launches June 21, $59.99 base, $149.99 limited-edition CE

Hello Games has announced that procedurally generated sci-fi sandbox No Man’s Sky is officially launching on June 21st on PS4 and on PC through Steam and GOG

This announcement arrives after a mistakenly published and hastily retracted PlayStation blog post this week suggested the date “3/3” and a $59.99 price point, which led gamers to suspect preorders might open today. Instead, it appears the announcement was planned for 3/3, but the price is right on: Steam’s price is $59.99, but if you want to shell out more, you can pick up the $149.99 explorer’s pack.

No Man’s Sky will launch as a complete game in June,” writes Managing Director Sean Murray, “but there’s a lot we’d like to add post-launch, if we can.” A “full-blown Blu-ray retail version” is also planned.

There is no real multiplayer anyway, let alone MMO features. Check your facts please:

Nyphur  You should spear head a little forum called “Operation Crack the Sky” where a number of us try to figure out how to meet in game and then take over systems :) 

I absolutely pre-ordered this game for me and my son.

voydd To be fair, all indications are that hardly anyone on PC bought battlefront. And, the vast majority of the Massively readership falls under the PC-first (with a side console or two) gaming, what with it being the de facto platform for MMOs…so while I get the jib of your post, its jibe is decidedly…lacking.

Silverlock Nyphur Good question! If I draw a certain rude pictograph in a planet’s surface with a bigass laser and someone else comes near, will they see me and my phallus-shaped crater? And if I am not around when that player visits the location, will they still see my giant space dong cut into the landscape? The game is officially listed as Singleplayer, and various interviews on the topic have given vague and contradictory answers to this question.
I guess there are still a lot of questions regarding persistence, and the developers are probably hoping that nobody will meet each other so it won’t be a big deal/ And yet the first thing a lot of people (myself included) will be attempting to do is to locate and travel to the location of a friend and see if they’re actually there. I’m happy to pre-order just to support Hello Games at this stage as I know how hard it is being an indie dev and this is their big break, but the game still looks amazing.

Nyphur Persistent for you or for everyone? If a bunch of players all went to Alpha Centauri would they see each other or not?

Smiggins From what I understand there are 18 Quintillion Stars in the game galaxy so even if every man woman and child on Earth played you’d probably never see anyone else even if you played for your entire life. Now whether or not if you said everyone within 1,000 light year of Alpha centauri meetup their if you would actually see each other I don’t know. It would be cool if you could.
