No Man's Sky on Steam

Postby Marz » Fri Mar 04, 2016 11:10 am

The big randomiser space/planet game is finally available for pre order on steam
R600 as per big games these days. Not much in the pre order incentive other than a slightly better ship to start.

The release dates are also now official, we will be able to play this game on June 22/24th (Euro and UK dates respectively)

I was under impression this game has some co-op / multiplayer.

Seems this will be a complete skip.

Oh Wait, there is multiplayer but there is a huge chance you will never be able to find your friends in game.

no multiplayer. There are echos. So if you go to planets visited by other players and they have named things, the names will appear in your game. - from what i can understand.

There is multiplayer but the odds of finding your friend are close to 0% according to the devs
If you see another player though, you can kill them if you wish which makes that aspect definitely a form of multiplayer

Game is aimed at exploration players. Its weakest point is its multiplayer in that there is very little of it.

Still a pickup for me because it hits all the other check boxes for an on off game for me when everyone else is busy

Well thats half correct then
The devs have confirmed it several times and theres a massive reddit thread complaining about how people cant call it single player

It's multiplayer like journey was multiplayer. You are connected to it and it "might" happen. But you don't have a menu option where you can go and select to play online.

No way I'm playing that game on PC. PS4 is the only place that thing can be enjoyed. A 65" tv with a 7.2 surround sound system and a comfy couch!
