Developer Hello Games is in the midst of releasing a 4-part video series for their upcoming game called No Man’s Sky, and they’ve just released the second part of it. While part one focused on the game’s exploration, part two shows off the game’s fighting mechanics.
The video’s description gives us an idea about what to expect with the game’s combat, saying “On a planet, players are equipped with a multi-tool to defend against deadly predator creatures and mine resources. Attacking creatures – aggressive or otherwise – or mining resources will call the attention of the Sentinels, a robotic force who seeks to keep each planet in a natural, undisturbed state,” explains the video’s blurb. “The more you fight back against the Sentinels, the higher your Wanted level, and the tougher they will become – from flying drones to quadrupedal machines, towering walkers and eventually dropships.”
There’s a lot more than just sentinels located on the planet that you need to watch out for, however, as space will also be patrolled by them and they’ll come after you if you attack traders or scavenge freighters. There will also be pirates that will swoop in unannounced, adding even more spontaneity to the combat.
Despite No Man’s Sky being delayed a couple of months, the game’s release date is now set in stone as the game officially went gold earlier this month. The game will launch on August 10th for PlayStation 4 and PC, and you can check out the new Fight trailer for the game below.
