No Man's Sky coming to PlayStation 4

Platform: PlayStation 4

Release date: 2015

No indie game in recent memory has garnered as much praise, hype and anticipation as No Man's Sky. From British studio Hello Games, the title promises players a near-infinite universe to explore thanks to the clever use of so-called procedural generation -- in other words, algorithms that populate the game world using large strings of numbers.
All in all, there will be 18 quintillion -- with a Q -- worlds to explore that would take billions of real-world years to see, even if you spent just one second on each.

No Many's Sky will be a PlayStation 4 exclusive (with a PC release later on) thanks to a deal with Sony, which, in a rare break from tradition, went so far as to bring Hello Games co-founder Sean Murray onstage at its E3 press conference last year. Expect more details about No Man's Sky, which remains shrouded in mystery, next week.
