No Man's Sky & Its Potential Release Date

First off, can we all just bathe in the glory of this remarkably beautiful art work for No Man's Sky seen above? We've yet to see anything from the gameplay trailers that depict a world with such enormous landscapes. The ships are dwarfed by these astounding mountains and I sincerely hope that there are landscapes with such vertical height.

We're aware that there will be vast and extremely deep oceans in the game, some of which can serve as a tomb for an unwary player venturing into their chasms. Every single word that is uttered by Hello Games and Sean Murray surrounding this game is furthering its reputation in the industry and I sincerely don't think their will be a game quite like this for a long time. This could be the game we show our grandchildren.

They gave us some great insight and some awesome news concerning the upcoming PS4 and PC title. According to them, the universe will be populated with 18,446,744,073,709,551,616 planets....just try and wrap your head around such a number.
