No Man’s Sky is a game that has come a long way to where it is today. After an excessive marketing campaign that led both critics and the public to have their expectations disappointed by what the game offered, No Man’s Sky has provided a prime example of what a redemption story should be. Improving with each patch, offering free content, and growing exponentially over time, it has become even more than what was originally promised. Especially because today it arrives on a new platform. No Man’s Sky arrives on Mac.
Originally released on August 9, 2016, by Hello Games, No Man’s Sky is an adventure and survival game. In this game, players travel through space, exploring different planets in an almost infinite universe. They gather resources, investigate the ecosystems of each planet, and try to uncover the mysteries behind the enigmatic entity known as The Atlas.
The problem with No Man’s Sky at its launch was that, despite promising a universe of possibilities, it only offered a universe filled with repetitive content. The game could generate nearly nineteen quintillion planets, but they all felt similar, and although the universe was shared with other players and traces of their presence could be found, it was so vast that encountering other players was nearly impossible, even for cooperative play. However, through subsequent updates, the game introduced simple ways to play cooperatively, expanded ways to interact with the worlds, added more content, and overall provided more ways to create a natural progression through which players could explore the universe in search of answers about Atlas and what each planet has to offer.
Now, as it arrives on Mac today, June 1st, we have another opportunity to explore the vast and beautiful universe of No Man’s Sky, inspired by the surreal science fiction of the 60s and 70s. All of this is accompanied by the spectacular soundtrack by 65daysofstatic, reminding us that there is not only life out there but also that it is tremendously fun to go out and discover it.
