Players Can Change Entire Locations In No Man’s Sky
This year’s VGX Awards were a hard disappointment but one of its silver linings was No Man’s Sky – an incredible looking indie game developed by four people. It’s all about exploring and discovering new worlds, new locations with space travel to get you from one location to the next.
Developer Hello Games has provided some interesting new details regarding the game.

The premise is that you start at the outset of the universe and are working your way towards the centre. This, however, is a task that requires “intelligence, imagination and co-operation,” Hello Games’ Sean Murray told Polygon.
Players will search space, discovering new worlds, stars and planets are created procedurally as they are discovered with unique environments and complete ecosystems to match them. The game has a persistent online universe so once discovered, the world becomes available to other players. “The act of discovery is also an act of creation,” explains the report.
Players will be able to make “significant changes” to locations – changes which will remain in affect for other players who follow.
In the trailer we caught a glimpse of space battles but Hello Games has also confirmed that there will be lad battles.
While specific platforms are yet to be confirmed, Murray says Hello Games aims to push the capabilities of “the new consoles” with “next-gen gameplay”, and not just pretty visuals.
