Did No Man's Sky have online play removed at the last minute?

14 August, 2016, 00:25 | Author: Lula Armstrong

According to Daily Star, Hello Games exec Sean Murray mentioned that the powerful PS4 might provide an entirely new No Man's Sky experience with better graphics than other platforms.

Digital Foundry has released a video created to test the performance of the PS4 version of No Man's Sky.

The game is more closely related to Minecraft in terms of the exploration experience.

As to what No Man's Sky's online mode is now remains a mystery.

Murray also reminds players that "No Man's Sky" is a single-player game in a post on Twitter.

Developer Hello Games seemed to imply this was because of a temporary glitch or server overload, but perhaps this sticker is evidence they knew it wouldn't work ahead of time.

Limited Edition versions of No Man's Sky in Europe come with a sticker covering the original PEGI rating and a logo denoting online play. Hello Games' highly-anticipated title is out today on Sony's console, but those on PC will have to wait until August 12 to play it.

The game has caused a stir in the industry because of the unique artificial intelligence that powers it, enabling its universe to hold more than 18 quintillion planets, making it, in theory, infinite.

The game's developers have repeatedly said that new features can be added to it with updates through time.

The game might sound pointless, but Murray said that players looking for an end can get one by travelling to the center of the universe. But it turned out to be a disappointment when they found out that they couldn't see each other.

Subnautica is, conversely, one-percent of No Man's Sky.

"It's a very simple concept actually", Murray says.

The Hello Games managing editor also hinted that they want to be the "Johnny Depp of studios", in a way that allows them to mix various styles from contemporary and indie games. However, you could land on a different planet, since every player starts out from a different spot.
