No Man's Sky confirms July release date on Xbox One, preorders snag Xbox suit

A few months ago, Xbox One owners were shocked when Hello Games announced that No Man's Sky was coming to the system with Xbox One X enhancements over the summer. However, the studio didn't reveal what perks those who preorder would receive on its July launch date.

Luckily, a GameStop (opens in new tab) listing revealed the existence of an "X.O. Suit", the "Artios-VI multi-tool", and "10,000 Units" to give you a head start. Out of all of these, the X.O. Suit is by far the one that stands out the most because it looks like you're wearing the Xbox logo! A lot of us would preorder just to try that on!

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 expanse, 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.

According to the developer, your journey will be charged with danger, encountering hostile creatures and fierce pirates. In order to survive, you will need to prepare, upgrading your ship, suit and weapons. Whether you choose to fight, trade or explore has consequences, shaping your journey as you travel across the stars.

No Man's Sky is currently available for preorder on Xbox One for $49.99. The game will launch on July 24, 2018 in the United States and July 27 in Europe alongside the new multiplayer update. Better yet, it also supports "4K Ultra HD" resolution on Xbox One X.

  • "*While Supplies Last." I don't see the asterisk referenced anywhere in the article of what supplies. If it refers to virtual gear then how the hell does that run out?
  • I called GameStop and they said they didn't know anything about supplies running out. From my understanding it just means you have to preorder before launch day.
  • The suit looks amazing though!
  • I want that suit for my (new) Avatar system!
  • And it still won't look anything like the pre-release footage.
  • Well, 4K resolution on Xbox One X will be a massive boost over the 1080p or 1440p on PlayStation 4 Pro. I guess that's a little something.
  • Pro is 4k(upscaled) buddy to which the XB1 will be as well.
  • I'm ready to jump on board this one. It's been the only PS exclusive I've ever had any interest in, I'm very happy Xbox is getting it.
  • It wasn't a PS4 exclusive. It launched on PC as well.
  • I just want to see some multi player footage... So glad it is coming to Xbox
  • Meanwhile PC & PS4 players who put up with the hate for 2 years get the middle finger.
