A few months ago, Hello Games surprised Xbox One owners by announcing No Man's Sky for Microsoft's platform. Better yet, the studio said that the title would feature Xbox One X enhancements and run at "4K Ultra HD" on the system.
Physical preorders went up on Amazon months ago, but today Hello Games listed the game for digital preorder on the Microsoft Store. The game is scheduled to launch on July 24, 2018. 505 Games is only publishing the physical version for Xbox One and Hello Games is going through the ID@Xbox program to launch the digital edition. Luckily, the preorder bonuses are the same for both versions.
No Man's Sky is currently listed as 7.83 GB on the system so it might be worth it to go digital given its size. Nowadays, a lot of patches are larger than that entire game. However, more space might be required one the files are installed on your console.
No Man's Sky is a science fiction adventure set across an infinite universe, in which 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. In this procedurally-generated universe, you'll discover places and creatures that no other player has seen before. However, a mystery lies at the center of the galaxy, an irresistible pulse that draws you on a voyage to discover the true nature of the universe.
