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

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



The release date is 10 August 2016. You can pre-order (before release date only) or purchase No Man’s Sky from:

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.
