Despite a very turbulent development process and multiple delays, the anticipated No Man’s Sky is being released on PC and PS4 next month on August 9. Reports are out that some people have managed to get their hands on the game even earlier than that when the street date was broken.
One of those lucky people who managed to get an early copy actually proceeded to stream No Man’s Sky for a few minutes, but was swiftly banned after just a few minutes. NeoGAF user GribbleGrunger managed to read a report as someone who managed to check out the stream before it was taken down:
It was like six minutes and he went through his inventory, showed the controller layout, it was nighttime and windy didn’t see any combat or any other life forms…the planet was lush with vegetation and it had a lot of iron deposits…he had an objective on the lower right hand of the screen there were like mountain cliffs he was trying walk up…
I don’t remember the controls but I know what his objective was he had to find silicate to replenish his fuel tanks to get his ship working there was iron all over the place and he did the scan and a blue resource icon showed up in his fov that said resources and he was trying to get there but he barely did anything cause by the time he went through his inventory showing off that screen and his controls layout he didn’t play very much he got banned so quick
Another user on the same site, CAMPBLACKMAMBA24 also shared his insight on the graphics of No Man’s Sky. According to the user, the game features “last-gen like graphics”
Graphics were Last-Gen like. Nothing like say The Witcher 3 or Uncharted 4. You will hear the complaints trust me.
Couldn’t tell as far as the fps.
Note: These are very early reports from a game that’s been streamed before its official release date. Therefore, it must be noted that this could be because of poor stream quality and/or the lack of a day one patch.
