No Man’s Sky, the unique space game developed by Hello Games, is finally getting released in less than two weeks on PC and PlayStation 4, but it seems like some lucky gamers have managed to get some early copies of the game. Some of these lucky gamers have been nice enough to share whatever they could on the highly anticipated game.

One of these gamers also managed to stream No Man’s Sky for a few minutes, but was unfortunately banned a short time after the stream started. NeoGAF user GribbleGrunger managed to read a report from another user who managed to check out the stream while it was live.

It was like six minutes and he went through his inventory, showed the controller layout, it was nighttime and windy didn’t see any combat or any other life forms…the planet was lush with vegetation and it had a lot of iron deposits…he had an objective on the lower right hand of the screen there were like mountain cliffs he was trying walk up…
I don’t remember the controls but I know what his objective was he had to find silicate to replenish his fuel tanks to get his ship working there was iron all over the place and he did the scan and a blue resource icon showed up in his fov that said resources and he was trying to get there but he barely did anything cause by the time he went through his inventory showing off that screen and his controls layout he didn’t play very much he got banned so quick

Another user going by the name of CAMPBLACKMAMBA24 also shared something new on the No Man’s Sky graphics. Apparently, the game features last-gen like graphics, which is definitely not surprising considering the huge scope of the game.

Graphics were Last-Gen like. Nothing like say The Witcher 3 or Uncharted 4. You will hear the complaints trust me.

Couldn’t tell as far as the fps.

No Man’s Sky launches on PlayStation 4 in North America on August 9th and in Europe on August 10th. The PC version has apparently been delayed a few days, but the game’s Steam page is still showing an August 10th release date for most regions. We will let you know more about the matter as soon as possible, so stay tuned for all the latest news.
