No Man’s Sky is certainly one of 2016’s most exciting titles, and although we’ve seen a good few details on the title, fans are still yearning to learn more. We know it’s a space exploration title, a building experience and a procedurally generated universe, but what else do we need to know? Here, you can see a little more of its gameplay and hear more about it. Continue reading No Man’s Sky in-depth gameplay footage
No Man’s Sky developer Sean Murray just posted a big announcement on PlayStation’s blog – No Man’s Sky will be released on June 21st!
In his post, Murray described No Man’s Sky as a game in which you can “trade, fight, explore, and survive in a boundless, computer-generated universe.”
The young developer seemed most excited to announce that a retail version of the game will be available in stores worldwide, and posted a picture of the impeccably designed box-art.
This week on the PlayStation Blog’s store updates, a listing of No Man’s Sky appeared briefly in the Pre-Order section, which was soon removed by Sony. It was dated for ‘3/3’, obviously meaning the 3rd of March, this Thursday. Will fans have an opportunity to pre-order the title, or was this just a mistake? Continue reading No Man’s Sky pre-orders to go live this week?
Having looked back over a pretty packed 2015 it’s time to cast our gaze forward to what 2016 has in store for us. Last year’s E3 teased a lot and left many feeling excited for what is coming our way. Continue reading Looking forward – The games of 2016

There are all sorts of rumours floating around the internet of Sony planning a ‘stealth release’ of Hello Games’ No Man’s Sky. With the release of Halo 5 on the Xbox One tomorrow, could Sony potentially draw some of the attention away from their competition, or would an out-of-nowhere release damage the game’s potential?
Sean Murray, lead designer of Hello Games with his title No Man’s Sky recently spoke to Official PlayStation Magazine, and discussed the feature of discovering and naming planets, animals and tech. Of course, the studio are aware of the dangers of giving players control of the naming process, but there’s only so much filtering they can do.
Since the first reveal of No Man’s Sky, many of us are asking questions. What is it? How big is it? What can I do? What can I not do? Can I spend money on ships or weapons? Can I get killed? Can I make friends? Well, some of these questions get answered in IGN’s IGN First for July, where Ryan McCaffrey talks to fellow Irishman Sean Murray, Lead developer at Hello Games.
So far I have given predictions for Bethesda, Microsoft, EA and Ubisoft, and Kat has done her predictions for Nintendo (because I don’t know them as well as she does). All are linked there, so if you want to check them out, do. Sony is the next conference on the list taking place on Monday the 15th of June at 6pm PT, with Square Enix and the PC Gaming Show predictions coming over the next few days.
Despite Sony’s PlayStation 4 being the fastest selling console of all time, people haven’t been too impressed with their exclusive lineup thus far. Sony Computer Entertainment Andrew House called 2015 “a year of investment”, and admitted that Sony’s first-party lineup is “a little sparse”. However, the release of Bloodborne definitely did help stave off the starvation, as it was a masterpiece of a game, and no doubt Sony have a few surprises lined up for E3. While 2015 may be a “little sparse”, I do feel that 2016 will be fantastic for PlayStation owners, as they seem to have a lot of titles planned over the course of the year.
To start off, none of these games have a set date. They either have a general timezone they are aiming for or are just expected sometime in 2015, and some will likely get pushed back to 2016. Either way, they are something to look out for. Continue reading 2015 in Gaming – Part 3
