The enormous house exploration sport No Man’s Sky might be obtainable on the Nintendo Switch on October 7th, developer Hello Games revealed Thursday. That’s a bit later than the summer time timeline announced in February, but it surely’s good to have a concrete date to look ahead to. Physical and digital editions might be launched on launch day.
In No Man’s Sky, you discover a universe that’s largely procedurally generated, and the sport has thus far been obtainable on extra highly effective platforms: PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S, and PC. We’ll have to attend and see precisely how effectively the sport performs on Nintendo’s comparatively much less highly effective console, however Hello Games’ years-long dedication to bettering the sport (one replace hit just last month) signifies the studio will work to iron out any potential points.
“No Man’s Sky on this tiny portable device feels both completely natural and also totally improbable at the same time,” Hello Games’ Sean Murray stated in a press release. “This has been a real moonshot for our small team. No Man’s Sky is built around procedural generation, which means the console generates everything you see. This makes it so much harder to bring our game to something like the Switch, but I think this team never seems happier than when they are trying to do near-impossible things.”
The identical day because the Switch launch, Hello Games can even be releasing a bodily version of the sport on PS5 that features all the updates launched thus far for the sport.
