With the release date for No Man’s Sky looming, the ESRB has now officially rated the game. It also gives you a small rundown on what you can do in the full game.
The game has been rated T for Teen on PS4 and PC. The only content descriptor is for “Fantasy Violence”. The game was rated PG over in Australia.
Here’s the rating summary: “This is a space-exploration adventure game in which players assume the role of a planetary explorer on a quest to reach the center of the universe. From a first-person perspective, players travel between planetary systems to explore alien worlds for resources, upgrade equipment, and discover unique life forms.
As players pilot spacecrafts to different planets, they can engage in space combat against enemy ships and space pirates; combat is accompanied by laser fire and large explosions. While on the planet surface, players can use a variety of gun-like weapons and melee attacks to defeat both aggressive and non-aggressive alien creatures. Ground battles can be frenetic at times with frequent laser blasts, screen-shaking effects, and large explosions.”
No Man’s Sky will be released on August 9th, 2016 for the PC and PS4. The file size is only 6GB which is surprising as the game has billions of planets for you to explore.
