Hello Games: “We Don’t Know” How Social No Man’s Sky Will Be
Too big perhaps?
Generally when a developer talks about their game to a major publication like say, The Guardian for example, they normally know how to answer each question whilst building hype for their game. Well that’s not quite what happened when Hello Games Sean Murry was interviewed by The Guardians Keith Stuart.
When quizzed on how social No Man’s Sky would be and how localised the millions of players would be in the billions of planet-wide universe, he answered “We don’t know”. Well… at least he’s honest. He continues on to say, “We don’t know if people will spread evenly out across the universe, or whether they’re going to corral into areas that have already been explored, whether they will form little trade routes, little strips of familiar worlds, going from the outside edge like the spokes of a wheel toward the centre of the galaxy – or whether it will be totally random.”
Frankly, as interested as I am in the upcoming game, this is a little off putting. But just a little.
