Ps4 and PC gamers will have to wait until August to try the highly-expected game No Man’s Sky. Hello Games, the company that develops the video game, has announced a reschedule on the premiering of the game, announced on 2013.

Hello Games Managing Director and founder, Sean Murray, revealed on Friday the delay of the game through a blog post. He assured that No Man’s Sky will be delayed to offer a premium quality product to their fan base.

The game was originally scheduled to launch on June 21 in North America, June 22 in Europe and June 24 in the UK. The game already had pre-order options but since March, fans have been rumoring the delay of the game.

Rumors of the delay began when GameStop employees received publicity products of the video game but were told to advertise it as a “coming soon” product rather than using the June date that was originally announced.

Murray has assured the team behind the game is working to enhance quality and key features of the No Man’s Sky universe.

“We realized that some key moments needed extra polish to bring them up to our standards. I had to make the tough choice to delay the game for a few weeks to allow us to deliver something special,” said Murray in the press release.

Murray continued to explain the challenge of creating a game with such a vast universe, especially with a small team and with a lot of fan expectation. However, he confirmed the significant advances the team is making to provide an excellent product.

No Man’s Sky universe

No Man’s Sky features a first open and survival game to explore the multiple planets and galaxies the game generates, all with the ability to fly spacecrafts. The player will feature a multi-tool jetpack to explore the game’s universe.

The game is being developed by the developer Hello Games based in England. The studio has created games such as the Joe Danger series and the highly expected universe of No Man’s Sky.

No Man’s Sky gamers will endure in four actions, including exploration, survival, combat and trading. The innovative aspect of the game is that users will be provided with the liberty of performing and enduring in different actions of their preferences.

The game has been highly expected thanks to its procedurally generated open universe that features 18 quintillion planets with different environments, flora, and fauna. Gamers can explore galaxies and planets before any other player, and the options of exploring and discovery are infinite.

Players of the game can collect information about the different species and planets found across the game’s universe and generate a massive database for its own use and everyone else’s. When discovering a planet for the first time, other players will be informed who discovered the area.

The game currency will be gained by players every time they find a new planet, allowing them to obtain and purchase exploring materials and gadgets. Another main appeal of the game is its visuals, which are surreal and colorful.

No Man’s Sky universe allows players to exchange planet coordinates with other players to find each other in the same universe, with the same characteristics thanks to the procedural generation system.

There has been a massive response to the game’s announcement, and a great fan base has been created, even though it hasn’t been released yet.

No Man’s Sky will be released on August 9 in North America, on August 10 in Europe and on August 12 in the UK.
