This week’s Top Downloads list kicks off with Hello Games’ ambitious exploration opus, No Man’s Sky, which tops PlayStation Store’s PS4 chart. Just behind it is this year’s installment of EA’s seminal sports series, Madden NFL 17. Battlefield hype is high, with BF4 surging to the number 3 spot just ahead of Battlefield 1’s release next month. Read on for the rest of the PS4, PS3 and PS Vita charts, and let us know in the comments what you think will take top honors this month.
“What do you do in No Man’s Sky?” is a question that’s followed Hello Games’ ambitious space opus around ever since it was unveiled back in 2014. Truth is, it’s never been an easy proposition to explain; when there’s an entire galaxy to explore, how do you tell someone where to start?
You might already know that the goal is to make your way to the center of a galaxy full of unique, procedurally-generated planets, but it’s what happens on the way there that’s a mystery. Now, with about five hours game time behind me, it’s becoming clear that there’s a lot to do. As millions of travelers prepare to make their way into this vast, unknown universe, here are a few things that will help get your journey underway…
The crunch of alien snow beneath your boots. The howl of a towering beast in the air. And the pools of color that decorate the space of a nearly infinite universe. These are the experiences of a solitary explorer embarking on the ultimate journey across the stars. Ladies and gentlemen, the wait is almost over: No Man’s Sky launches this week on PS4.
Hi everyone! So we’re starting the countdown to the launch of No Man’s Sky on August 9. With just a few short weeks until you can get your hands on the game, we wanted to tackle one of the questions we’ve seen crop up a few times: what do you get to do in No Man’s Sky?
I’m Sean Murray from Hello Games, the indie team behind No Man’s Sky. It’s a science-fiction game set in an infinite procedural universe, coming to PS4 on June 21.
