    Murray went into further detail in a blog post on the No Man's Sky website, warning that the game may not be for some what they "imagined" the game to be based on its trailers.

    "If you hoped for things like pvp multiplayer or city building, piloting freighters, or building civilizations… that isn’t what [No Man's Sky] is. Over time it might become some of those things through updates," Murray wrote, explaining that owning freighters and the ability to build bases are on the way.

    Murray did go on to elaborate that, while No Man's Sky may not be those things, it is "an infinite procedural sci-fi-space-survival-sandbox... and it’s a very very chill game."

    That sounds good, but he's got it backwards.  By the time all that stuff arrives, everyone will have left, and then the environment, and the game, will be empty.

    He should've designed it with the community in mind in the first place.
    and why should anyone wait to build a base when they can do that now in space engineers is what I dont get and I have no doubt someone is going to say 'because its not procedurally generated' 'yes it is' 'well I mean to that scale and it doesnt have flowers'

    I cant wait for all this NMS to go away
    Why do you insist on going on and on about space engineers? Please just add that you like it to your sig and move on.

    For someone that is riding others about things, you seem to have quite a few items you bring up, over, and over, and over,  that get old as well. 

    I can't wait for you to stop mentioning space engineers in NMS threads....

    Wake me up when this is in the < $20 bin.

    Looks okay to play for a few hours a couple of times when I'm bored and that's about it. No Man's Sky has less content and less interesting NPCs than even your typical themepark MMO.

    Sean Murray said MP was part of the game in various interviews before it was released.  Was he just outright lying?  Because a game like this that promised MP and doesn't deliver - is going to crash and burn so hard when people find out they were straight up lied to.

    There is no conclusive proof at this point that you either can or can't.

    Someone claimed that they used a packet-sniffer to analyse NMS network traffic on the PS4 and found no evidence that the client even sends positional data to the server, making it impossible to meet with anyone. They claim that NMS does not currently support multiplayer functionality, because they couldn't find any sign of such support in the packet data.

    Shortly after that two game streamers claimed that they went to the same location ingame and couldn't see each other.

    But given that the game has only been out for two days, there is a remote possibility that console players haven't in fact discovered everything there is to know about NMS.

    All questions will be answered once the game launches on PC, because then the people with real brains will be playing the game ! :D :D :D

    Well Jim Sterling gave it a 5/10 because it was too chill. His website is being DDoS'd in response to the review but you can see it via https://www.reddit.com/r/NoMansSkyTheGame/comments/4x2a78/jim_sterling_gives_no_mans_sky_a_510/



    http://www.thejimquisition.com/no-mans-sky-review/ its up now.

    Jim didn't say it was too chill. He said it was just another average survival/crafting game that used randomization as a crutch to the point of losing all potential personality and that there wasn't enough to do.

    NMS is like a pretty looking interactive painting with no substance underneath.

    Wouldn't say chill, been watching summit1g play it for several hours over two days and he was just doing the same thing on every plant.

    Land > harvest > top up shit > repeat.

    There was nothing that stood out on the planets, can understand that every plant can't have something going on, but every planet seems dull :(. Needs more hostile creatures, hostile plants, planets that make you crap yourself, example a planet in complete darkness or something, but have rare shit on it. in-depth ship and player customization, just anything imaginative.

    From watching and how summit felt, the game felt like once you seen one planet, you've seen them all. Is there a really reason to explore?

    Well what ones claims in multiplayer is debatable. What does HE consider multiplayer?  Cause at the moment the game does not even have to connect / be online to play. And since the servers are constantly going up and down on the PS4 and you never even notice it unless you are going to upload some data on discoveries and it says unable to connect to server.

    There's zero chance this game has multiplayer in the sense that you can play with other players and see them move around and such.

    When a developer says that you won't even be able to tell if its a player or a npc that alone tells me that theres no realtime multiplayer.  Non realtime multiplayer does exist in the sense that I can upload my discoveries and you will see said discoveries in your game if you manage to find the same area, ect.

    There will never be a time where you can group up and get with a group of friends and build a base and fight ageanst other players. Cause at that point the game would be a MMO and the devs have said they have no desire to build a mmo.  How would that work out when all the info is stored in a central database and you want to play with your friends.. Who runs the server? Is NMS going to run the server? Is it just whoever is first in the area is the server? Also how is chat going to work when the game has no built in chat system at all..

    No.  You can't even see other players in the world.  They're supposed to be changing it so you can 'see' other player's phantom characters, but absolutely zero interaction.  There was an article on it, I'll post it if I can find it.

    Edited: there's the article.

    No it is not. Very simple answer... NO.

    This was absolutely clear a year ago when I first read about this game and therefor generated 0 interest with me. I don't understand why people are confused. Did the developer intentionally make this less clear closer to release? It was the lead developer who was interviewed that I read. It was clear zero multiplayer. And it was probably on this site that I read it.

    I appears many players have come to share my concerns. Unfortunately. Lets hope some patches, and Xpack or even mods can fill in some content and make for a less repetitive gameplay loop.

    Well no.  The developer muddied the water with his comments.  

    Also there is hope that they could develop this game in to so much more.  They have the baseline for something remarkable with another year or two dev time.
