Explore. Fight. Trade. They are the easy parts in No Man’s Sky. The final trailer closing out this series from Hello Games puts the focus on what is clearly the most challenging piece of No Man’s Sky’s four elements: survival.
No peaceful lumbering dinosaurs or intergalactic commerce here. Every little thing in this trailer is out for blood, and it gives a transparent look into how brutal the game can be if a player lands on the wrong planet. Toxic rain, extreme temperatures, unhealthy radiation levels, violent drones, and of course, deadly organisms. If you thought it would be a straight-shot to the center of the universe, think again.
There are plenty of situations that you simply can’t shoot your way out of.
No Man’s Sky launches for the PlayStation 4 on Aug. 9. The PC version will be released on Aug. 12.
