One of the most highly anticipated games of 2016 now has a firm release date. Hello Games' space-based exploration game No Man's Sky will be released for the PC and PlayStation 4 on June 21, and pre-orders for the $59.99 game are currently being taking on Steam and GOG for the PC version and Amazon for the PlayStation 4 version.
Just in case you are unfamiliar with No Man's Sky, here's the basic premise:
"In No Man's Sky, every star is the light of a distant sun, each orbited by planets filled with life, and you can go to any of them you choose. Fly smoothly from deep space to planetary surfaces, with no loading screens, and no limits. In this infinite procedurally generated universe, you'll discover places and creatures that no other players have seen before - and perhaps never will again."
All pre-orders for the game will enable access to an extra ship, the Horizon Omega, which has a better hyperdrive and weapons than the standard ship. In addition to the standard game, iam8bit.com is selling a limited "Explorer's Edition" of No Man's Sky for $149.99 with only 10,000 copies available to purchase. In addition to either a Steam or GOG code for the game, it comes with a Traveller Pin, a diorama display backdrop and a big hand-painted replica of one of the ships in the game, along with decals for extra customization. There's also a ''mystery" extra in the box.
