About No Man's Sky

About this game

NOTE: This game can only be used with the Oculus Quest/Quest 2 when the headset is connected to a VR compatible Windows PC via an Oculus Link compatible cable

No Man's Sky is an ambitious first or third-person adventure set in a vast, procedurally generated universe.

Procedurally Generated Galaxies

Every star is the light of a distant sun, each orbited by planets filled with life — and you can visit any of them. The game features a nearly infinite number of unique planets to explore, each with its own set of flora and fauna. You can travel across the galaxy using your ship's onboard Hyperdrive engine, or take to a planet's surface on foot or in one of several vehicles mining for materials.

Discover New Flora And Fauna

There are many different types of aliens across the galaxy. Some are friendly and some are not. You will have to explore the universe to find out which ones you can do business with, and which ones just want your ship’s precious cargo.

Explore And Create Together

There are no set objectives in No Man's Sky; instead, players are free to create their own goals, whether it’s with friends, random people, or just on your own. Find a planet that suits your fancy, then create a place to call home whether it’s a simple shack or a sprawling futuristic complex.

It's The Game That Never Ends!

Exciting, Relaxing, And Ever-Changing
Verified purchase
I recently picked up No Man's Sky and am hooked! The open-world aspect of it and having so much I can do has kept me entertained for 52 hours so far, with no end in sight. Feeling like I can do whatever I want, however I want, at my own pace and that is very attractive to me. I love the graphics, sounds, music, and bright colors. I know I've barely scratched the surface of all this game has for me and am anticipating every minute. Now if you'll excuse me, it's time to boot up the game again.

I bought this game when I was going through a rough patch in life. It helped me relax and enjoy space exploration without the huge demands compare to other similar genres. Devs continuously improve and update the game that is very much community driven. Come be part of a community and I'll see you all in your favorite ships!

The sheer amount of high quality content within this game is staggering, and the consistent updates further improving upon and adding upon it make this game a marvel at all angles. I've owned the game on my own for a couple years and just bought a copy for my friend, and between both of us the experience is mirrored; the game is extremely fun and enthralling, with just enough depth to each of its mechanics to allow you to focus on whatever aspect of the space adventure you prefer. It is important to note though that if you take a long enough break with this game, you might find the state of the game has changed wildly or that you don't really know what you were last doing, so taking notes as you play might be necessary if you drop games for months at a time.

The game is really cool when you start out, though it quickly loses its luster after the first few hours. Still, playing with friends adds a lot more value to the game, and we ended up having a blast.

It's decent, but slow. I think the start of this game has too much walking and the UI's pretty trash to navigate. However, it's definitely better than it used to be at launch by far. Also, coops is pretty seamless to get going so that's great.

Very immersive in VR, a little repetitive, really fun overall

Fanatical User

I'm very early in the game, but so far am really enjoying it! I'm playing it in VR via SteamVR over to Meta Quest 2 and it's incredibly immersive and fun, especially once you get your ship and base up and running! I worry the gameplay loop of harvesting/building/refining/unrefining/harvesting again will get stale, but I know there's a lot of the game I haven't seen yet (just built my first base), and so far the sense of discovery is really incredible.

Love the game! So much to do and Learn I have 40-50 hours in it already and I have to say it’s one of my favorite sandbox games!
