What Hello Games is trying to do with No Man’s Sky is pretty impressive and goes beyond what now seems like a simple emulation of a city with Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto, as you will be able to explore the very edges of an infinite procedurally generated galaxy (via PlayStation BLOG).

Today comes the official announcement from the studio and the folks at PlayStation as well, that No Man’s Sky is launching June 21st exclusively on PS4 (and PC). Judging by the quote below too, the studio seems pretty passionate about this game (via No-Mans-Sky.com):

“No Man’s Sky has been in our heads for a very long time. In fact, it has its roots in Sean Murray’s experiences growing up on a ranch in the Australian outback. It was the true middle of nowhere, where if something went wrong you were told to just stay where you were and light a fire at an exact time every day, and hope that someone would find you. The night sky was filled with more stars than you’ve ever seen, and we’ve all thought that this is exactly where videogames would go, videogames that contained the whole universe, and you’d be able to visit it all. No Man’s Sky takes that jump – it’s the game we’ve always wanted to make.”

Will No Man’s Sky live up to expectations? Who knows, but I love the swagger behind just the epic scope of this game. By the trailer alone it looks and feels huge. To make this critical grumpy pants gamer feel that impressed well… that in and of itself is an accomplishment.

No Man’s Sky will be released exclusively on PS4 and PC on June 21st.

So Nation what do you think of No Man’s Sky? Will you give it try? Or is it promising more than it can deliver? Keep it locked here to GeekNation for all your video game news.
