Hello, PlayStation.Blog! I’m Alex, from Hello Games. Hope you’re well! How’s your summer going? Ours? We’re kinda recovered from E3, where Sean showed off live No Man’s Sky gameplay for the first time. It has been a big relief that people seemed to like it. You can’t know just how scary it is to show a game as open-ended as No Man’s Sky live on a stage for an audience of millions.
Woo-hoo, PlayStation Experience! Our massive, two-day community event has wrapped up, but so many new games were announced that it’s easy to miss some choice trailers and videos. Check out this selection below — which were your favorites?
A year ago today we first revealed our game called No Man’s Sky. These twelve months have been life changing for all of us at our little studio. Your response to what we’re making has been inspiring, affirming, and only sometimes totally terrifying. But in the best way :)
We wanted to take you on a journey to demonstrate five ways you’ll travel through No Man’s Sky’s infinite worlds. From hearing a distress signal, we find ourselves spanning the galaxy. It’s just one story that you could find yourself writing as you play. There are so many more.
One of the undisputed highlights of our E3 2014 media briefing was the moment when Hello Games’ visibly nervous Sean Murray clambered on stage to show off No Man’s Sky, his team’s remarkable open-universe, science fiction epic which will debut on PS4. As you’ll hopefully have ascertained in the press coverage since (and in Sean’s blog post), there’s extraordinary ambition on display here, especially given the size of the Hello team, and it was no surprise that it was arguably the buzz game of the show.
With E3 in the rearview, we focus on the bold new future! Specifically, next week’s new releases for June 24th, and an interview with Hello Games on their stunning PS4 sky-fi adventure No Man’s Sky. Plus voicemails, a word from Bruce Straley and Neil Druckmann from Naughty Dog, assorted gags, and more!
My name is Sean Murray, and I’m part of an independent studio called Hello Games. You might know us from a game called Joe Danger. That’s the only time I’ve been on the blog before. Sony was incredibly supportive of us back then, when we were just starting out as four friends, making our first game.
