Eagerly awaited No Man’s Sky finally gets PS4, PC release date

Gamers keeping track of low-key/indie titles are likely to have known about No Man's Sky for some time. First revealed in late 2013 by developer Hello Games, it's quite simply the most ambitious game we've seen in a very long time. Players are basically dropped into an open-world space exploration game that's procedurally-generated, meaning no two planets will ever be the same, and there's almost no limited to how many worlds there are. Well, actually there is: over 18 quintillion, to be exact.
