No Man’s Sky is Only 6GB on Disc

Crazy huh!?

Sean Murray has revealed on Twitter that No Man’s Sky is only a 6GB file on disc, that’s right, the entire universe only took 6GB of space. Furthermore, the majority of that space is audio. It makes you wonder what kind of magic the team over at Hello Games has access to.

Recently No Man’s Sky went gold, which is also shown in the tweet, meaning no more delays and one can assume a rock solid release for August 10th in the UK. The game had been hit by chronic delays which got many worried as to whether Hello Games had bitten off more than they could chew but judging by the faces in the picture they’ve achieved what they set out to accomplish.

No Man’s Skys gameplay is built on four key pillars (exploration, survival, combat and trading) and players are free to play within the entirety of a procedurally generated open universe, consisting of over 18 quintillion planets, all with their own eco-system. By exploring, players gain information about the planets that they can submit to The Atlas, a universal database that can be shared with other players of the game. Players get compensated in currency every time new information is uploaded to The Atlas. Players also gain materials and blueprints to upgrade their character’s equipment and purchase a variety of starships, allowing them to travel deeper into the center of the galaxy, survive on planets with hostile environments, interact in friendly or hostile manners to computer-controlled space-faring factions, or trade with other ships. There is plenty for the player to do but all gameplay is open ended, allowing the player to be a part of their own journey.

No Man’s Sky is coming to PC and PS4.
