  • Summary: 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 byInspired 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...

    An astounding achievement. Hello Games deserve credit for creating one of the best games of this console generation - even if it did take a couple of years longer than planned.

    No Man’s Sky has reached a point where not only does it meet initial promises, it now exceeds them.

    No Man’s Sky is a vastly different game compared to its 2016 release. A range of updates, big and small, have culminated in transforming a disappointing space affair into an intergalactic journey that, frustrations aside, is well worth taking.

    Thanks to several major updates No Man's Sky is in many ways a very different experience today than it was in 2016, even though the main gameplay loop is still intact. If you want an exciting story or thrilling space combat, this is not for you. However, if you want a Minecraft-oozing space adventure filled with endless exploration, it fits perfectly. It may not be Star Wars or Mass Effect, but it's your very own space adventure.

    As before No Man’s Sky is a game that I enjoyed the most when I was moving under my own steam, plodding along as a leisurely place. The NEXT update brings a lot of great new features to the game and as a result it now feels more complete than it ever has. It is also the perfect time to release the game on Xbox to a new audience that may not have yet had the chance to play it. Sure, there is still a lot of fine tuning that needs to happen and I may still have the odd bone to pick, but this update proves that Hello Games are 100% committed to making No Man’s Sky the best game they possibly can.

    Two years after its initial release, No Man’s Sky have developed into a whole different game. Tons of new content, several updates and patches for the online section, more features for crafting system, new missions, and many, many more added features have made NMS a valuable title.

    Technically, No Man’s Sky delivers the idea Hello Games promised — a massive sci-fi playground for you to explore. However, once you’ve spent some time poking around, it’s hard not to notice that the playground feels fairly empty, even two years later and after massive content additions.

    Beware of reviews from the old version of the game!!

    The game on launch 2 years ago was rocky, to say the least. It a put of people of people off from trying the game since.

    Which is a shame, as the subsequent updates added a lot to the game, and refined much of the gameplay.

    Now the 'NEXT' update has landed, the biggest one yet, it overhauls a lot of gameplay that people weren't happy with, and adds a ton of new and awesome content.

    One of the best games I've played!

    I almost bought a PS4 when NMS was announced. But I managed to hold out, and when the game's launch went as roughly as it did, I feltI almost bought a PS4 when NMS was announced. But I managed to hold out, and when the game's launch went as roughly as it did, I felt vindicated keeping my gaming to my Xbox. But with the way the game has been updated and patched over the last two years, including the amazing new Next update, there couldn't be a better time for this game to come to Xbox.

    If you like a more directed, intense experience, you won't find that here. It's fairly chill, with a lot of find-your-own-fun elements and resource grinding. But no other game offers you a sense of discovery and wonder with this much breadth.

    This is the game it was meant to be… So much to explore, it's simply jaw-dropping.

They addedAfter a disappointing release on PC / PS4, Hello Games has stuck to their game and continually updated the game with new features. They added base building, vehicles, quests with a story line and now full-on multiplayer. This game is incredibly fun to play with friends. Think Minecraft in space.

    Also, Hello Games has devoted themselves to updating the game in the future. So more cool new features are sure to come.

    What a boring game. Trillions of planets but all the same...empty! NO civilizations, no point in exploring the same thing over and over andWhat a boring game. Trillions of planets but all the same...empty! NO civilizations, no point in exploring the same thing over and over and mining the same resources over and over...this game is crazy overpriced and boring. Tell me how out of trillions of planets are there not any cities and a bunch of empty planets with some boring wildlife here and there...LAME. Expand
