If you’re still baffled by the title, when a game “goes gold” that means it’s done. It’s ready to slapped onto disks and prepped for digital downloads. No Man’s Sky is happening! It’s finally happening! Despite the delay earlier this year in May, the game was then set to release in June but it was further delayed. But now it looks like we’ll finally be able to get our hands on No Man’s Sky come August. Sean Murray broke the news via Twitter saying, “It’s happened. No man’s Sky just went gold. I’m so incredibly proud of this tiny team. 4 years of emotions.” The tweet was accompanied by a photo of the tiny team celebrating their accomplishment. Which is no small feat, especially for a team that started out with just 4 members. It has grown since, but not much, with the grand total now being 13.
No Man’s Sky promises players new planets to explore along with resources to find and gather for trade or equipment upgrades. Each planet has its own unique local wildlife which could or couldn’t be hostile, and players have to find the means to deal with them as well. Players also have to take care not to disrupt the ecosystems of local planets lest they find themselves on the wrong side of the law. There’s quite a lot to do and a colossal universe to do it in.
No Man’s Sky going gold is big news as it comes with a lot of big promises. There has even been mention of a multiplayer aspect, but the developers have been quiet about that so far. The fact that we’re getting such an overly ambitious title in the first place is a big deal. No Man’s Sky is arguably the most anticipated title of 2016 and for obvious reason as we just mentioned above. Hopefully developer Hello Games will not disappoint. We’re definitely looking forward to getting our mitts on this one!
