E3 Megahit "No Man's Sky" May Release on PS4 in 2015 - Other Consoles to Follow? [Video]
"No Man's Sky" has a lot of gamers excited. The game lets players explore an infinite, procedurally generated universe, with planets featuring different ecosystems, technology, and in some cases, giant aliens more than happy to take a bite from a player or two.
But the thing gamers are most curious about is when "No Man's Sky" will come out. Hello Games, the studio developing "No Man's Sky" haven't mentioned a thing about potential release dates, but according to PC Advisor, a 2015 release date makes the most sense. Hello Games dropped plenty of new info at this year's E3 expo, but the one thing they weren't telling was when the game would actually come out.
Right now, the game is only slated for a release on Playstation 4, but that might change very soon. Forbes recently published a new article on the game, and one of the big details they revealed is that there are no legal limits for where Hello Games can port "No Man's Sky." According to Forbes, the most likely pattern of release is to hit the PS4 first, and after a period of a few months, transition over to PC. As well, the addition of Oculus Rift technology on the PC would make a port extremely appealing.
Given how complex the game is, fans may be waiting quite a while for "No Man's Sky." A new piece in Gamespot delved into the algorithms behind the game, which allow the game to create new and different planets and environments on a whim, populating the universe as each player explores their own unique path.
According to Gamespot, the algorithms were developed to cut down on costs- otherwise, Hello Games would have had to spend undue time and money crafting each individual game world with their own hands.
