No Man's Sky for Xbox One now available for preorder [updated]

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 support over the summer. However, no further details were provided regarding preorder information and price. Luckily, that changed today.

Updated July 5, 2018: 505 Games officially announced preorders for the physical version which comes with a variety of bonuses like the "X.O. Suit" which looks like you're wearing an Xbox logo on your head.

No Man's Sky for Xbox One is now available for preorder on Amazon and other retailers. It features 4K and HDR support on Xbox One X. The physical release is being distributed by 505 Games and costs $49.99. The title is expected to launch on July 24, 2018.

The game was previously only available on PC and PlayStation 4. Since Sony published No Man's Sky on its system, it was unclear if the title would come to any other 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.

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.

  • That looks really good.
  • It's quite polarising. I've got it for PS4 and quite enjoyed it. But it failed to meet the expectations of many. Although i do think it could have, it was severely over hyped.
  • Yeah, I know about the release fluke. But still, it's a fine looking game. Otherwise I think I could enjoy it. I like that Spore space phase vibe.
  • Yeah it's definitely worth playing as long as you set your expectations. As I say, I enjoyed it. Price seems a bit much though tbh... I got mine used but like new from eBay shortly after launch for £15. I think they should ask $30 for it rather than $50, especially given how long it's been advisor for PC and PS4.
  • Very tempted, for this on Xbox One, but the PS4 version is soo cheap atm
  • It doesn't really run that well on PS4 from my experience, hopefully the Xbox One X version will be much better. I imagine it will be.
  • You should consider 2 things.
    1) Yes price. Is it really worth paying around 4-5 times the price?
    2) Waiting. Are you willing to wait till almost august to play it? Also if you have a mid range PC consider the PC version. It has quite a mods.
  • All the multi-plat console games run the best on Xbox One X.
  • I dunno, I'd say at this point in time it runs better on the PS4 systems. You know, considering availability.
  • 🤔😆😆😆😆
  • No thanks
  • I enjoyed it alot on the PS4. I like the exploration the game offers. They have also added things and improved it since its release.
  • Came out in 2016. The price should be steeply discounted for the XBOX fan-base.
  • When can I pre order form the store on xbox?
  • That's pretty pricey for a two year old indie game that got so much hate on release. I realise they have improved it since then but it doesn't help their image giving it such a hefty price tag, $30 would have made much more sense.
