No Man's Sky
is coming to North America on June 21st and elsewhere on
June 24th, and preorders for the Windows edition of the procedural space game
are now underway on
and on Steam
Word is: "The pre-order incentive for No Man's Sky includes the Horizon Omega
ship — faster engines, better guns, all to kickstart your trip and help you
survive longer on the interstellar journey." And for the truly fanatical,
offers a $149.99 No Man's Sky "Explorer's Edition" (thanks

distant worlds, dilating lifetimes, blending generations. A round-trip may find
your world aged and unrecognizable, separated from your loved ones, irrevocably
alien. In an intergalactic society, only the few set off towards the stars —
explorers, those unafraid and with nothing to lose. They set off never to come

No Man's Sky promises discovery of an infinite, uncharted universe. Its billions
of stars, planets, unknown living creatures, breathtaking sights and lonely
wastelands — all seamlessly connected — populated with explorers drawn to the
distant mysteries of the horizon, eager to leave a permanent mark in their wake.
The frontier is merciless and dangerous. Exposed to a universe of extremities in
your fragile suit and ship, you'll need resources and upgrades to get far — as
well as the means stand your ground in fight.
Whether you journey to the center of it all or seek out the farthest reaches of
existence, the trip will not be simple or dull. You'll catalogue things unseen,
discover alien artifacts and reveal mysteries of the universe. If you survive.
