Game description

Inspired by the adventure and imagination that we love from classic science-fiction, No Man's Sky presents you with a galaxy to explore, filled with unique planets and lifeforms, and constant danger and action.

In No Man's Sky, every star is the light of a distant sun, each orbited by planets filled with life, and you can go to any of them you choose. Fly smoothly from deep space to planetary surfaces, with no loading screens, and no limits. In this infinite procedurally generated universe, you'll discover places and creatures that no other players have seen before - and perhaps never will again.

Embark on an Epic Voyage

At the centre of the galaxy lies a irresistible pulse which draws you on a journey towards it to learn the true nature of the cosmos. But, facing hostile creatures and fierce pirates, you'll know that death comes at a cost, and survival will be down to the choices you make over how you upgrade your ship, your weapon and suit.

Find Your Own Destiny

Your voyage through No Man's Sky is up to you. Will you be a fighter, preying on the weak and taking their riches, or taking out pirates for their bounties? Power is yours if you upgrade your ship for speed and weaponry.

Or a trader? Find rich resources on forgotten worlds and exploit them for the highest prices. Invest in more cargo space and you'll reap huge rewards.

Or perhaps an explorer? Go beyond the known frontier and discover places and things that no one has ever seen before. Upgrade your engines to jump ever farther, and strengthen your suit for survival in toxic environments that would kill the unwary.

Share Your Journey

The galaxy is a living, breathing place. Trade convoys travel between stars, factions vie for territory, pirates hunt the unwary, and the police are ever watching. Every other player lives in the same galaxy, and you can choose to share your discoveries with them on a map that spans known space. Perhaps you will see the results of their actions as well as your own...


Welcome to the Foundation Update. It adds the foundations of base building, and is a foundation for things to come. This is the first of many free updates.
Explorers can now decide to play with different rule sets, across three game modes:
-Normal mode is the original chilled exploration experience
-Creative mode allows players to explore the universe without limits, and build a huge base
-Survival mode really changes the game, creating a much more challenging endurance experience
-Claim your home planet by finding an uninhabited base and creating your own, fully bespoke outpost.
-Construct your homestead for shelter, using modular structures and decorations, replicated from resources gathered while exploring
-Recruit alien lifeforms to help research new technology. Farming, engineer, weapons and science specialists are hirable from Space Stations
-Use Terminus Teleporters in Space Stations to teleport to and from your base at will
-Expand your base with storage containers to stockpile precious resources and rare products
-Find an even more beautiful location and you can simply dismantle your previous homestead to refund all of the spent resources
-Cultivate biome dependent crops outdoors, or inside your base or Freighter using Hydroponic Labs
-Plants grow over time and offer a steady supply of resources to be harvested
-Hire a farming specialist to research and grow ten new plant types, and discover new resource elements
-Players can now build essential equipment in the field on-planet
-Place save points anywhere in the world, crucial for Survival mode
-Automated Harvesters gather resources from mineral deposits in your absence
-Waypoints can be placed and colour-coded to allow explorers to return to discoveries
-Communications Terminals allow explorers to leave sub-space messages for others to find
-Discover nearby mineral deposits, uninhabited bases or suit upgrades with the use of a Signal Scanner
-Purchase huge interstellar Freighters at great expense, and then summon them from anywhere in the galaxy
-Resources can be teleported to your Freighter while on-planet, ideal for stockpiling goods for trading
-Customise the inside of your Freighter within the Base Building section
-Create extended cargo holds to expand your vessel’s capacity, and grow crops of rare resources on board
-Transport your Freighter and its cargo to different, more economically favourable systems to maximise your earnings
-Use the new recruitment system to crew your Freighter with Engineer, Farmer, Weapons and Science specialists to help research new technologies
-Discover new biome and star specific resource types as you explore the universe
-Craft the new Advanced Mining Laser and Hazmat gauntlets through base building and use them to gather rare resources
-Research and discover dozens of new products, building components and technologies
-The user interface has been improved to accommodate the stress of Survival Mode where a small inconvenience can be the difference between life and death.
-The intelligent Quick Access Menu streamlines Inventory access.
-Products can be stacked up to five times per inventory slot, resulting in increased starship, base container and freighter storage capacity
-New arrow indicators have been added to emphasise shield and life support changes more clearly, to aid decision making
-Scanned Primary resource elements have been given specific symbols to allow for easier differentiation
-View your current objective at any time quickly by pressing left on the D-Pad, or H on your keyboard
-The UI has been visually improved by removing colour tint and other artifacts
-Early warning indicators have been added to starship cockpits to notify explorers of inbound Pirate activity
-Red cockpit warnings indicate more clearly when Pulse Drive is unavailable
-Motion blur has been added to accentuate the feeling of speed, particularly when in-flight. This can be switched on or off via the Options menu
-Temporal Anti Aliasing (TAA) removes jagged edges effectively and has been added as an option to improve visuals clarity
-Texture streaming can be enabled, allowing minimum spec PCs to run the game more smoothly (accessible from settings xml)
-Terrain generation and colourisation algorithms have been revised to produce more aesthetically interesting planets

Reviews for No Man's Sky

An enjoyable , though flawed game

This game lets you explore the vastness of the space. The art design is great and some of the procedurally generated worlds are stunning. Sadly , however there are flaws. The mechanics are all simplistic and overly repetitive. The endgame is a huge disappointment. Still there is some fun exploring and scavenging to be had here.

Semi Good Games but has a lot potensial

Amazing looking game and a wonderful atmosphere. The game definitely isn't what was promised before launch, but there's still hope for it. The new update has added some of what I imagined this game would be like, and think that Hello Games has definitely taken a step in the right direction. I've played No Man's Sky, however the one thing that prevents me from being able to play as much as I'd like is that i must play it on my friends' computers. The game does not launch on my computer unfortunately, It simply tells me my key is invalid and refuses to launch. However, a technical issue specific to my machine should not warrant a bad review. Devs, I hope you read these, because I know a lot of people hate you right now, but there are still a lot who would like to see you and your game succeed. You have been very helpful to me and trying to resolve the issues i am having with the game, and even though the problem is unresolved (the problem is probably actually with Steam), It is nice to know how much you care about the experiences your users are having with your creation.

Interesting survival game

Yes i know some people are spitting on this game and some of them are true, it would be nice for it to be a multiplayer but oh well, i played it like 50h and done everything in it and it was awesome but in some time it begins to be boring.

Could be better

I have a lot of respect for this team for not just packing up and running with whatever cash they've made. To put out a large update with all the negative energy thrown their way shows intengrity. I'm not here to change minds if you've made your decision about this game. I doubt it's even possible. I'd had my fill prior to this update as well. I had some fun but my efforts felt futile and aimless. The addition of being able to make a homestead and / or purchase a freighter has (for me) given the game instantly more structure. I feel as if I belong in the universe now rather than just hopping around for no apparent reason. Exploration has an immediate purpose and reward. I'm no longer focused on just finding the center of the universe. It feels like a game world now (not just a artsy proof of concept) which I feel is a huge step in the right direction. If they continue to flesh out these buidling systems and were to add more survival elements we'd be looking at a universe scale survival game with limitless exploration. I'm impressed. It's still not for everyone but it's changed my opinion about both the game and the team behind it.

A regular game

The truth expected much more, unfortunately I disappoint myself a lot, I thought it would be different something more surprising but in the end it is only a normal game
