No Man's Sky Summary
Poor Hello Games. The developers behind the upcoming, infinite procedural galaxy-explorer, No Man’s Sky just can’t catch a break. The game was the subject of a years-long trademark dispute with broadcasting company Sky, and a month-long delay on the hotly anticipated title saw its creators showered with hate mail and death threats. It seemed things were finally going to be peaceful when they announced the game had gone gold two weeks ago, but it seems they’ve got one last problem to deal with.
It happened! It actually happened! Hello Games have completed their work on No Man’s Sky – the game is complete and has gone gold (when a final master copy has been produced at the developer and sent off for replication, packing and shipment).
No Man’s Sky, developed by UK-based team Hello Games, promises to create an infinite amount of worlds for players to explore. Each planet in the game is supposed to have unique fauna and flora. As you can expect, there have been delays to No Man’s Sky but when you consider the amount of content in the game, it’s not too surprising.
Sean Murray, founder of Hello Games, has given fans an update on the highly anticipated No Man’s Sky. If you genuinely have no idea about No Man’s Sky, we’ll give you a brief overview of the game. No Man’s Sky is an open-world survival adventure game. Open-world may not be the right way to describe the game, as Hello Games claim you can travel a universe filled with eight quintillion planets.
Here is Murray’s full message:
People from Europe will have heard of Sky before, the satellite broadcasting company. Sky in the UK deals with its satellite TV service, phone lines, broadband, and the company has trademarked the word ‘Sky’. Hello Games recently settled a three year long legal despite with Sky over the name of its game – No Man’s Sky, according to Hello Games founder Sean Murray.
Murray chose not to disclose any of the details surrounding the settlement on Twitter, but he let everyone know that there was a legal dispute. Here’s what he had to say about the settlement: "Yay! We finally settled with Sky (they own the word "Sky"). We can call our game No Man's Sky. 3 years of secret stupid legal nonsense over. This is the same folks who made Microsoft change Skydrive to Onedrive... so it was pretty serious. On the plus side perhaps this is the real reason Skynet never happened..."
The sci-fi interplanetary first-person survival game No Man’s Sky may be delayed until either July or August, according to reports. No Man’s Sky release date was scheduled for June 21st for PC and PlayStation 4, but judging by an image posted by a GameStop worker, a confirmation of the delay may be imminent.
No Man’s Sky, developed by UK-based team Hello Games, promises to create an infinite amount of worlds for players to explore. Each planet in the game is supposed to have unique fauna and flora, but most hands on impressions from other websites have all been set planets. The developers haven’t given a lot of critics the ability to explore the game for a length of time without having created a level for them beforehand, almost defeating the purpose of the game.
