Product Details:

Inspired by classic science-fiction and its overwhelming sense of adventure and imagination, Hello Games presents a game of unprecedented scale and ambition. In No Man's Sky you explore an infinite universe where you will discover unique never-before-seen planets and lifeforms.

A mystery lies at the center of the galaxy, an irresistible pulse that draws you on an epic voyage to discover the true nature of the cosmos. Your journey will be charged with danger, encountering hostile creatures and fierce pirates; in order to survive, you will need to prepare, upgrading your ship, suit and weapons.

Whether you choose to fight, trade or explore, every decision you make has consequences, shaping your journey as you travel ever deeper into No Man's Sky.

No Man's Sky is an epic science fiction adventure set across an infinite universe, in which every star is the light of a distant sun, orbited by planets filled with life - each yours to visit. Explore never before seen worlds, discover unique lifeforms and trade, fight and survive on a galactic scale.

  • Explore a universe of possibilities - With over 18,446,744,073,709,551,616 (18 quintillion) possible planets, No Man's Sky's procedurally generated galaxy gives players an unparalleled opportunity to explore worlds that no one has ever visited before. Exploration is entirely seamless, with no loading screens, whether you're flying from space to a planet's surface or even warping between solar systems.
  • Forge your own path to the center of the galaxy - Whether you consider yourself a trader, an explorer or a fighter, there's no limit to how you play No Man's Sky. You may slip between play-styles freely, from pirate to miner, bounty hunter to surveyor, but know that any action can have lasting consequences.
  • Share your discoveries - Everyone starts No Man's Sky on the outer rim of the same unexplored galaxy. As you progress, you will come across countless undiscovered solar systems, planets, lifeforms and much more. You can choose to share your discoveries with other players, naming them and adding them to the Galactic Map, forever associated with your PSN ID. You may also share the amazing sights you encounter using the PlayStation 4 system's share functions.
  • Space combat on a grand scale - Make enemies and forge alliances by joining battles between the factions that occupy the galaxy. Take part in daring raids on trade convoys and audacious attacks on capital ships, claim bounties, and upgrade your weaponry. But be warned: helping one faction may make its enemies yours, too.
  • Trade your way through the galaxy - Violence is not the only route to success. Discovering rare resources and trading them where they are most valuable will help you amass a fortune you can exchange for upgrades and ships that can carry ever more cargo. The rewards will be great, but you'll run the risk of attracting the attention of ruthless space pirates.
  • Prepare yourself for exploration - By upgrading your engines, you can travel further and faster, pushing at the frontiers of the known galaxy. Upgrading your suit will help protect you from radiation and extreme environments that would kill the unprepared.
  • Discover a social galaxy - The galaxy is a living, breathing place, with trade convoys travelling between stars, pirates, police and military ships ever ready for action, and planets teeming with life. The same galaxy is also shared by every player of No Man's Sky. Perhaps you will see the results of their actions, as well as your own?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great for three hours! Then boring. I was looking forward to this game and then was excited to play it. The first three or so hours are awesome. After that you pretty much repeat forever, it gets boring so fast and feels like a waste of money. If they come out with a huge update making the experience better, then maybe consider it, otherwise RUN!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Complete trash In no way is this game worth $60. Every planet looks exactly the same, the only variation is weather. Every building on every planet is exactly the same, with the only difference being manned by one of 4 or 5 different alien lifeforms. Many creatures on the same planet look the same except maybe one has spikes and another has humps. Horrible combat system. Would not recommend to anyone, within 5 hours of gameplay you have done and seen everything in the game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An interesting concept This game has an interesting concept. I do see where people whom complained about it complaints come from. Overall with a few updates this game can come back from the gutter people put it in. All that matters is that I enjoy it though.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A lot of features, little depth While the tremendous hype for this game certainly hurt it's reputation in the long run, the game is not anywhere as bad as disappointed fans claim it to be. I bought this game only having heard it's name before, not following any of the press coverage for the game preceding it's release. It looked like a cool space exploration game, with some material gathering and upgrading to help me along. For the most part, that is exactly what it is. The game does exactly what is advertised on the box. Lots of reviewers talk about all the missing features, and how it's "nothing like what was advertised," and that is true to only a small degree. The features "missing" are ones that were mentioned 2 to 3 years ago that have since been taken out. If you aren't aware of these features, then there's nothing to be concerned about. That's not just No Man's Sky, that's every game in existence. While it is disappointing that some things got scrapped, everything shown on this GameStop site is in the game. Period. There is resource hunting, battles, upgrading and crafting, survival elements,discovering new plants, animals, rocks, planets, even a slight story-line to follow. The problem is not that features are missing, but that nothing seems to have much depth. Materials gathered have very specific and limited use, making their collection often pointless (unless you're earning money or looking for said material for an upgrade). Battles are laughably easy. Ground battles consist of you standing still, and shooting a stationary drone, dog, or walker until one of you dies. You can't dodge, as all incoming laser beams auto hit you, and your bolts largely do the same. Space battles are better, but rely too heavily on upgrades instead of skill. My first battle was disastrous on my end, but after upgrading my guns and shields twice each, every battle since has been easily shaken off. Survival is there, but regardless of whether it' is extreme heat, cold, radiation, or toxicity, they all involve one constantly draining bar that is easily restored and forgotten. Upgrades are largely just for stat boosts, there are only a couple notable upgrades that add differing functions to your exosuit, ship, or multitool. In short, everything listed is indeed there, but to a limited degree. The game was extremely breath taking in it's first few hours, making me think of all the possibilities that it had to offer later in the game. However, after exploring 3 or 4 star systems, I realized that what I do in the beginning of the game is exactly what I will be doing the entire game. 25 planets after starting, I'm still mining carbon and iron for refueling and seeing lots of the same landmarks over and over, all of which have a single function. This makes their discovery mute unless you want said function, ruining a lot of that sense of mystery. Yet, I still go back to play it. The mining is fun, resource collecting itself is fun, seeing the various planets and types is fun, even the battles are a nice distraction from my current goal from time to time. The game is fun not because of it's complexity, but rather for it's vision and atmosphere. It's easily worth $30, $40 if you're just too impatient to wait any longer for the price to drop.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A major disappointment When someone brags about an algorithm generating 18 Quintilian planets, proceed with caution. That number of planets have only slight variations to the next planet. It's either hot, cold, toxic, or irradiated. Planets are populated with animals that are a mixed bag of body parts. Some alien species exist, but talking to them is equivalent to farming. The aliens are found in similar random outposts on every planet. With these points in mind, I can confidently say the game gets old very quickly. Plenty of bugs and errors exist. If you explore a planet from above, many objects and landscapes do not render fast enough. Besides the crashing/freezing, the "restore save" function can either permanently delete your data, or it will prevent you from saving your progress until your quit the application. If you purchase a spacecraft with cannons installed, they will be stuck at 0% charge and fire with minimum damage. The "ending" (or lack thereof) is also disappointing. No multiplayer functions as promised. The game was over-hyped, lacks promised features, and was not executed well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from So sad This game is very repetitive, and got way too much hype. I say it has potential, but you won't catch me buying a sequel to this game.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Intriguing, but not worth a purchase. There is no game out there like No Man's Sky. The universe is so incredibly expansive, and each planet offers new discoveries. However, all of this discovering gets boring after a few hours of gameplay. I came to realize that most of the time I have invested into this game, I spent shooting at rocks with a laser gun and zooming in on different variations of a basically similar four-legged critter. The only truly great thing about this game is its sheer size. Getting rich and buying a fancy starship or learning a secret alien language may seem like worthwhile objectives, but achieving them does not change the gameplay at all. Not once was I ever really compelled to reach the "center" of the No Man's Sky universe. Freezing to death in a much more boring automatically rendered version of Hoth was the only real exhilaration I can recall having while playing this prototype of a game. In all, don't purchase for anything more than $15 unless you have cash to throw at curiosities.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Okay It is a decent game but it was really hyped but then did not meet expectations and was missing a few promised details. If you like survival games then it is a game for you but for me it wasn't that good.I only played it for 2 days and haven't touched it since.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Infinite Gaming with User in Full Control I just got into the gaming world and bought my PS4 a few months ago. I was very intrigued by the concept of this game. I love that you aren't restricted in this game in any way; you can explore every inch of the planet without restriction. In some ways the game is relaxing. The planetary environments are very interesting and you encounter different elements and situations in each environment. You can literally play this game forever. I have been playing it for a month now and I want to keep going to see how the environment changes as I get progress thru the galaxy. I would say this is a good game for someone who doesn't have expectations and isn't expecting a win-or-lose concept; there is no win or lose - you just keep going. It is also good for someone who like to explore freely and on your own time. Another thing I really like is there are no cut scenes to deal with! After a while I can see why people say that it does become repetitive: you upgrade your suit, your ship, and your multi-tool as much as you can. There are also only a finite number of objectives for each planet. You mine and sell those items for units that you can use to buy other ships or items from the trade portal. I have encountered one bug where I got trapped on the "other side" of the gaming environment. I sent an email to support and never heard back, but I was able to get out of it. It took some time to figure it out, but luckily I did.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from First 2 hours? Fantastic. Next 30-40? Terrible. The game has a fantastic start and its first few hours are amazing, leaving you in a sense of sheer wonder and amazement of the world around you. Only to find out after jumping the first few star systems all you're doing is the same stuff over and over: mine, sell, buy a new ship or multi-tool, build a warp cell, move on, lather rinse repeat; that's all you do. Also the galactic core? Y'know this supposedly amazing thing that you spent the whole time trying to get to? Yeah you don't see anything of it, right as you warp there it does a short cutscene of you just going back further and further through stars then it just starts you all over in a new galaxy. Nothing new other than you restart having to fix your ship and warp around all over again. Just with the knowledge and materials you had. The hype was through the roof but the execution? Hate to say it but it was absolute garbage.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pure bad This should have been a $14.99-19.99 game and even that may still be too much to pay. Repetitive and the game drives me insane with every other second air low, shielding low or some other notification that grows soooo old fast. Flying is bad and fighting is soooo stiff in this game. This game isn't meant to fly well and fight in the air or run on the ground to fight with no, it's about running around looking for stuff and grows so old so fast. If you have trouble sleeping at night play this game and it will help you to get to sleep faster! Not a bad game but lacks in sooooooo many areas it's crazy I tell you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing in every way. I wish I could give this game 18 Quintilian stars! The thing is, you have to be into space and science fiction. I'm a space nerd and love the idea of exploring planets and galaxies. If you look up at the night sky and get goose bumps, this game is for you. If you aren't really into that kind of thing, you may not enjoy it very much.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A Complete Farce I'd been excited about this title since I first saw the trailer back in 2014. Now that I've finished it I could not possibly be more disappointed. There's no real crafting beyond a handful of small components. Trade is tedious and repetitive, especially due to the game constantly recycling the same NPCs. You can still be talking to one and have that same NPC show up not 10 seconds later. New ships are prohibitively expensive, even if salvaged, with no benefit aside from appearance and maybe one or two more slots. You cannot upgrade the slots of your own vessel and have to sacrifice storage for functionality very often. Procedural generation of creatures is repetitive and benign. After a long period of time the game starts to turn into a very sad sort of spectator mode for Spore as there's no reward for hunting them down or interacting with creatures. This is an exploration game that is completely and utterly devoid of any lore. Monoliths will repeat the same ten-fifteen snippets for the three races in the game and it amounts to a whole lot of nothing. The Atlas Path is a massive waste of time with no reward at the end, same for trying to reach the center of the Universe. There is are no cut scenes, there's no metaphorical apotheosis; nothing. The most interaction you are likely to have with other people is finding systems that have already been explored by other players-a task made far less revelatory with the ability to search for Discoveries having been included. Graphics are generally fine unless you're moving quickly across the planet surface, at which point the environment tends to break up into quadrants-it's mostly noticeable on planets with water; the clear surfaces break up into squares. Supposedly, the game has a decent soundtrack, but most of the background noise is almost inaudible and tends to default between three tracks-the most prominent being one with strange, booming interference. What I expected from this game was not at all what was delivered; a massive, immersive universe to explore with no boundaries, in depth space combat, and a lush experience. The only thing massive about this game is the procedurally generated disappointment. It becomes an endless slog of gathering resources for money to buy additional suit upgrades to carry more resources and repeat the cycle. Other than opening this otherwise empty sandbox to the modding community, there's nothing salvageable here.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A great game... For the first 20 hours maximum. No Man's Sky has a vast amount of unique ecology, zoology, and geography on its planets. the game also offers a universal trade center, space combat, mining resources, astounding exploration, and paths to either reach the center of the galaxy, or take guidance from an omniscient being. Unfortunately, after (for me) about 15 sittings of playing the game, it get very stale. The storyline is mediocre, and all of the games song suits become underwhelming as well. It is a good game, but it gets boring fast.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from only thing this game got is hype after playing the game for a few hours I realized how much more the game had to offer... absolutely nothing. I am glad that this game was not a launch title for PS4 or any system for that matter. to make this review short this is the first game I have ever bought from gamestop that I will attempt to return for a full refund. I'm 32 and have countless hours of gaming... I've never seen a game like this and one to bring so much hype but fail so bad.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nice Idea, poor implementation No Man's Sky seems to have a lot of hype, but no lasting appeal. Gameplay is repetitive, and many features that were promised are missing or not working.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fun at First, but doesn't last long No Man's Sky is easily one of the most hyped up games to have been announced in the last few years, simply because we knew hardly anything about it. Being able to explore a vast, infinite universe and discover things? Sounds awesome, right? Unfortunately the game can be very short, lasting only 2 hours, if you decide to cut to the chase and go straight for the center of the universe. But if you don't you'll be treated to a good looking game with lots of things to discover and things to find. Or at least, to a point. Eventually, everything that you find just becomes the same looking base with the same few alien species inside or a crash site with a ship better than the one you bought for a few million but irreparable unless you leave to get the materials needed to fit in to your incredibly small inventory and then attempt to find it again, which may be nigh impossible. Many small frustrations at once keep this game from being a fully laid back, enjoyable experience, and the texture loading issues coupled with the same repetitive game play and discoveries will tire you out quick. It's a game you can put down and pick up very easily, even after a few months, so I can't really recommend it to anyone who wouldn't want a game they could just leave for a long time and come back to to maybe wind down from stress. If the constant barrage of sentinels, poorly executed space battles, and repetitiveness don't drive you away.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing If you like repetitive resource gathering then you would like it. This game lacks depth. It is pretty boring in the long run. It is fun for about an hour. Makes me wish I bought it on psn then I would have been able to ask for a refund.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This game has potential but not worth the $59.99 The game gets repetitive and boring very quickly. The game is very incomplete and Gamestop should offer a full refund no matter if the product has been opened or not. The game would be better if it had the features advertised in the trailer

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lack of Quality and Content First let me say this game has all the right elements but all the wrong execution. The game starts with a very lacking tutorial and/or story. You wonder from one solar system to the other with very little to no guidance. The planets look highly similar to each other for the most part with some having gorgeous landscape which are rare to find!. The creatures and characters look very poorly designed to say the least for a game of 2016 and the hassle of even trying to learn their native language never seems to even begin to assist you. I would not recommend you buying this game, it will gets boring very fast. Your money is best spent somewhere else.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money. If you want to pay $60 for an (at best) $15 Indie game, by all means... go for it. This game is far from what was advertised. It's incredibly boring, frustrating, and unfinished. Don't do it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from One man's Lie So many things were promised in this game that were never included. The ending to this game is just a huge slap in the face. I'm not one for spoilers but your better off knowing that there is nothing in the center of the universe and when you get there it warps you back to the beginning of the game on a new planet to do it all over again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Could Have Been Great I was anticipating this game since it was announced at E3 and preordered it. This game literally throws you in to the game with a wrecked space ship on a random planet and was probably one of the exciting games I have played in a long time........for the first 5-6 hours. The exploration and vastness of space is great, learning a language is great, visiting other planets is great and then you realize that you will be doing this exact same thing over and over and over and over again because that is literally all there is to the game. it quickly became a boring game that's only saving grace is the vastness of space and randomness of the next planet. With as HUGE as this game is it should have been a multiplayer game.... As a stress reliever I would say its the best game I own but as something exciting the lack of content becomes apparent.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not As Expected This game began as an adventurous world; that I could see new creatures and the different types of plants. It's hard for me to fully recommend this game fully due to the price and the actually gameplay. Not saying the gameplay is ultimately bad, but more of it becomes the a repeating thing. Seeing a plant that I saw in another solar system but it's named something else isn't a new discovery in my book. The majority of the animals I've seen are small with only a few big animals. So like I said the similarly. In which this constant similarly can become boring and you spent 60 dollars on a game that repeats. Also. the MMO in which I thought it would be. It's not fun without seeing other players. Being alone, and rarely if never going to planets that's been discovered already. But overall the game is a mind exploration. It's up to you to venture out and explore. That the way to make the game fun.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great at first then dies off When I first started this game I loved it. I loved the concept of the game but then it got old fast. All you do is survive and thats it. There are no real quests or real point to the game. You can follow a couple of different quests but it got real boring real fast.
