No Man’s Sky, the highly anticipated space exploration game, launches in a few days and despite dozens of leaks from streamers buying the game early, people are still confused about the game’s activities. Part of the mystery can be blamed on No Man’s Sky itself, which as it turns out, is incomplete on the retail disc. People that snapped up the game being sold at outlets before it was officially supposed to be on shelves have been playing without the benefit of an extensive day one patch. Beyond that, the lingering question of “What is it all about?” has plagued the game since its initial reveal. Is it an aimless pastel-colored space vacation? An interstellar combat survival-thon? According to Hello Games’ studio head, Sean Murray, it’s probably not what most people think it’s going to be.
It’s a weird game, it’s a niche game and it’s a very very chill game.
No Man’s Sky and chill.
