British developershowed more of No Man's Sky this week at the Sony E3 conference, which included a tantalising glimpse at the stupendously vast galaxy map where each star can be explored.
There was a ruckus between two factions as fleets battled, which we could choose to get involved with, and we visited a new alien world that has since been dubbed 'Planet E3'. There's still no release date yet.
A procedurally generated open galaxy awaits us in No Man's Sky as it would be impossible to populate such a vast expanse otherwise. In fact the game is never likely to be fully charted. We are a space explorer who can navigate the stars and enter planetary atmospheres and touchdown to document what we find and share our discoveries.
No Man's Sky is in development for PC and PlayStation 4.
