Hello Games’ No Man’s Sky has been receiving quite a bit of hype ever since it was announced due to its unique gameplay and visuals. In the game you have the ability to explore the near-infinite bounds of space, with each planet being unique from the last.
Every game has to have a limit, right? Well, sort of. In an interview with IGN, Hello Studios’ co-founder Sean Murray said that it would take approximately 5 billion years to see everything in the game.
Yup, that’s a pretty long time.
No Man’s Sky is being developed for the PlayStation 4 and PC and is set to be released sometime next year.
Last week we were all teased with a Sierra logo that hinted that the company may be coming back from the dead, and now we have the confirmation that it is all true.
The original founder of the company, Ken Williams, said the following:
“We’re very proud of what we created all those years ago with Sierra Online, and today’s news about carrying Sierra forward as an indie-specific brand is very encouraging.”
He goes on to mention their immediate game plans:
“We look forward to seeing Sierra’s independent spirit live on, and are especially excited to see what The Odd Gentlemen will do with King’s Quest.”
Sierra was a classic gaming company in the late 80’s and early 90’s, so seeing that kind of retro spirit back in the current gaming world will be great. I love the fact that they are focusing on indie developers to bring more attention to those more unique titles, while also re-imagining some of their past classics with current hardware.
Dead Island has a reputation for featuring an impressive assortment of ways to brutally kill zombies, and if this new gameplay trailer for Dead Island 2 is anything to go by then that fact is only going to be amplified in the game’s sequel.
The game takes place in California immediately after the events of Dead Island and Escape Dead Island as the state is put under quarantine due to this viscous zombie outbreak. It’s up to you to stay alive and mutilate as many zombies as you can in as many ways as you can come up with, so you better bring plenty of weapons.
The fantastic Resident Evil GameCube remake that came out in 2002 is getting the remaster treatment. Capcom has announced that they will be remastered the game for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC.
As for what this remaster will be doing for the 2002 game, the game is being upgraded to 1080p on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, will have enhanced 3D models and textures, and will contain 5.1 surround sound. The game will also allow you to switch between the game’s original 4:3 aspect ratio to 16:9.
Deepsilver has revealed all of the games that they will be displaying at this years Gamescom convention, with over 150 stations being available for attendees to play them on.
Some of the games that they are set to display that are most prominent are Metro Redux, Risen 3: Titan Lords, Sacred 3, Dead Island 2 and Emergency 5.
All of these games definitely have different kinds of appeal, although Dead Island 2 is certainly the most popular game they have set to display. Their original Dead Island was a very successful survival horror role-playing game, and the sequel is currently targeting a Spring 2015 release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
No Man’s Sky is shaping up to be one of the most intriguing games of the year, with all gameplay we have seen being space travel through a world that is infinite.
This game was shown at PlayStation’s E3 press conference earlier this year, but it has now been confirmed by the developers that the game will also be coming to the PC at a later date.
Developer Hello Games’ Sean Murray said the following in an interview with Edge Magazine:
I actually got in a bit of trouble for saying that we wanted the game to feel really ‘console-y,. We’ve always had PC in mind but in my head [console-y] means solid framerate and immediate controls. I think a PC game can be ‘console-y’ and it’s intended as a compliment, but I get in trouble for saying it.”
No Man’s Sky does not currently have a release date.
