After years in development and several delays, UK-based indie studio Hello Games has finally finished building its highly anticipated survival and exploration title, No Man’s Sky.That means the company will most likely be able to stick with its latest release date of August 9 for North America on PS4 and PC. It will become available in Europe the next day and in the UK on August 12.
The game is ready to be put on disc and be prepared for digital release, more commonly known by the term “gone gold”.No Man’s Sky director and head of Hello Games, Sean Murray recently confirmed that the game has officially went Gold today. This means that the full game is now feature complete and in a shape to be sent to the publisher for the purpose of manufacturing discs,the final game might end up being less than 25 GB in size.On the PS4, the game will set you back by Rs. 3,499 digitally and Rs. 3,999 if you’re buying a physical copy.
The Limited Edition is for $80 (around Rs. 5,371) and considering that other Sony titles like Uncharted 4 aren’t seeing special variants hit India, it’s safe to say that the No Man’s Sky Limited Edition will skip the country as well.And if the PS4 isn’t your gaming machine of choice, there’s an elaborate PC version as well. Dubbed the No Man’s Sky Explorer’s Edition comes with a replica ship, decals, pins, and well, a code for redeeming the game instead of a disc. It’s being made and sold by UK boutique creative outfit iam8bit and costs $149.99 (roughly Rs. 10,000).
