Spoiler Alert, Hello Games’ upcoming space exploration survival game, No Man’s Sky will have zero spoilers due to the sheer insane size of the game’s procedurally generated universe.
We’ve already written about how No Man’s Sky would take players around five billion years to explore the entire universe and see the same planet twice. But as it turns out, because of the nature of the game’s procedural generation, no matter how much No Man’s Sky you watch, you’ll never see a spoiler.
As it turns out every game will be unique to the player despite the universe itself being populated by different players. It’s very much possible that you’ll be discovering new planets each time you play, and there’s a chance you’ll never meet another player, ever.
In this era in which footage of every game is recorded and uploaded to YouTube, we wanted a game where, even if you watched every video, it still wouldn’t be spoiled for you.
And we wanted those discoveries to be meaningful in the sense that they could be shared with other players, all of whom existed in the exact same universe, rather than inside their own random dimension.
That being said, all of the footage we’ve seen so far may not represent the game you experience, as for each person it’ll be unique, and nobody can predict what you’ll see out there.
No Man’s Sky launches on PlayStation 4 and Windows PC some time this year, hopefully.
