No Man's Sky - pre-order and purchase info

Everything you need to know about the release of No Man's Sky.


PlayStation Store versions

There is one version of No Man’s Sky available from PlayStation Store. When you pre-order you also get bonus content:

  • Upgraded Alpha Vector Ship
  • 10,000 unit starting boost
  • PS4 Dynamic theme

See PlayStation Store for more details.

HDD space needed


Your PS4 needs twice as much HDD space as the size of the game. For example a 14GB game can only be downloaded to a PS4 with 28GB of free space on the hard disk drive.

If you have pre-ordered, make sure that you have enough free space three days before release date to ensure pre-load or auto-download works. If you have automatic download switched on your PlayStation 4 system will download the game during the first download window (04:00 – 06:00 AM) after pre-load is released. You can also manually start your pre-order download when the pre-load file becomes available. Pre-load isn’t always available but is usually made available between 48 and 12 hours before release.
