No Man's Sky gameplay footage shows galactic exploration

No Mans Sky

Sean Murray of Hello Games showed off a little gameplay from the upcoming No Man's Sky at Sony's E3 conference on Sunday. After demonstrating a little combat, he piloted his ship a random planet he'd never visited before. After scanning for alien life, he demonstrated the destructible environment by blasting some rocks, at which point sentinels, the planet's protectors, chased him off.

After spotting some fish in a lake, also showed how players will be able to discover and report new lifeforms.

Chris started playing PC games in the 1980s, started writing about them in the early 2000s, and (finally) started getting paid to write about them in the late 2000s. Following a few years as a regular freelancer, PC Gamer hired him in 2014, probably so he'd stop emailing them asking for more work. Chris has a love-hate relationship with survival games and an unhealthy fascination with the inner lives of NPCs. He's also a fan of offbeat simulation games, mods, and ignoring storylines in RPGs so he can make up his own.
