No Man's Sky Trailer

A new "Infinite Worlds" trailer from No Man's Sky shows off gameplay from Hello Game's upcoming space combat game. The clip title also says PS4, but presumably it is visually representative of the PC edition as well. The clip does not come with any details or description. Thanks DSOGaming.

Procedurally generated "art"?

Ever looked at procedurally generated graphics or music?

Good luck with that!

Your logic is flawed, because even though it may be true that some things in the world don't lend well to being procedurally generated, but what applies to those things doesn't mean it applies to others. Look at Minecraft, the quintessential definition of what procedural generation can do and do extremely well. If you remove Minecraft's ability to allow for player creativity the only thing left would be the procedurally generated world(s).

It also depends greatly on how well written the algorithms are that determine what gets generated. Minecraft's alpha version worlds were pretty bland and didn't offer much variation, but over time, it has been tweaked to produce some incredibly stunning and interesting scenery. In the big picture, procedural generation is only just getting started, and after decades of the same small, constricted, uninspired, human-made bullshit, I say bring on No Man's Sky and any other game that utilizes procedurally generated content!

Ad-hominem attacks now? Really? It does look and play better than Starcitizen IMO too. In fact Super Mario looks and plays better than Starcitizen since we havent even seen any gameplay or anything of the PU of Starcitizen. Are you gonna slur my parents now too?

This is soo true. Think of every MMO you have ever played and count the number of times you discoverd something no one else had ever seen in the game. This game might work as a single player game like Skyrim, but as an MMO, it will be all immature potty joke names, and griefing.

Another comment tucks this in along with Star Citizen, another single player game that by choosing to go multiplayer persistent notches up the complexity and geometrically jacks up the development time to the point that a finished quality product looks less and less possible.

Wow. A lot of Debbie downers on this forum. This is a game trying to be creative and do somthing different and with a small development team. Nothing wrong with that. Better than 50 sequels and rehash of same games. I'm all for exploring .

Yeah its a bunch of whiners who expect every game to give them 10000 unique hours of replay value. I don't care if I see everything the game has to offer in a week, that's pretty good value and as long as its fun why should people give a shit? Some of you are spoiled fucking brats who act like every other game on the market is even half as ambitious.

I've always wanted a game where you could seamlessly go from space to ground and get out of your ship.

Evochron Mercenary has had that for years and you can try it in the demo right now if you want, but as cutter points out it really does get old pretty fast, and I expect this game to be the same. Not expecting much from this one I'm afraid, but I'll keep an aye out for lets plays when it comes out.

With every "trailer" this thing is looking less and less interesting. Every star system is simply small variations on a basic model.

Yeah and after you've done it a few times and the thrill has worn off then what? It appears that all the actual "game" is is just exploring variations on themes. Ok, this world has a pink ocean with blue fish, and this one has a red ocean with grey fish. It doesn't look like there's anything to actually do. No NPCs, active questing, crafting, economy, etc. just flying around and looking at stuff. I'll grant you that'd be neat for all of about 3 hours but then it's all over.

Geez do some research people. While the concept is great, the developers ability to program such is not.

Another obvious loser.

Hopefully it doesn't turn into a borefest like Spore did for me. Perhaps futzing around in a spaceship might help. It might go a lot further if the game is moddable, because inevitably someone would find a way to have true multiplayer in it.

Also they forgot to take the Windows mouse pointer out of the video at 1:02 lol.

It's like a Chris Foss painting come to life. Hours after this is released someone will figure out a way to jump to the center of the universe.
