Over the past couple of weeks we have been getting new videos from Hello Games detailing the different aspects of their highly-anticipated No Man’s Sky, and now today we have received the final part. This time we’re focusing on survival, dealing with all of the different things present on each of the game’s nearly-limitless amount of planets that could potential kill us.
“While some planets are beautiful and serene, many have extreme conditions that make survival difficult. Some planets will have extreme temperatures – from freezing lows to scorching highs – while others are drenched in toxic rain, heavily irradiated or completely submerged.”
“For the unprepared, surviving on planets with extremes will be a challenge. Every second spent exposed in the elements will chip away at your protective shielding, which can be restored by taking shelter or expending resources to recharge it. By upgrading your suit’s technologies, you can survive harsh climates for longer, run faster, jump higher and explore for longer.”
“Whether you die under the claws of a creature, by the lasers of a space pirate or just succumb to the elements, death will have a real impact on your progress. Resources will be lost and technology damaged as your body is regenerated at your last save point, so make sure to put up a fight!”
No Man’s Sky will launch for PlayStation 4 on August 9th and PC on August 12th. Check out the survival trailer for the game below.
