What is No Man's Sky?

Lose yourself in a vast sci-fi odyssey as you explore a near-infinite, procedurally generated universe.

Set out from the edge of the Euclid galaxy and carve out your own interstellar existence in a vast universe teeming with life, danger and near-endless mystery.

No Man's Sky is a hugely-ambitious, heavily-stylised, sci-fi adventure that spans entire galaxies all brought to life with procedural generation. Travel through an endless array of increasingly diverse and dangerous star systems, prospecting for rare materials, trading with alien life, populate planets and searching for clues to the meaning of the universe's mysterious existence.

How you survive is up to you. Assemble entire fleets of dreadnought-class freighters and tear across the universe; build sprawling habitable bases across planet surfaces, beneath the ground or under the ocean; buy and upgrade your own weapons and star ships and do battle with outlaw space pirates, hostile alien fauna or the mysterious sentinel fleets.  

The universe is yours to explore - trillions upon trillions of planets, waiting to be discovered.

No Man's Sky key features

Explore without bounds

On foot, on two, four or eight wheels, aboard your interstellar freighter or from the cockpit of your fighter-class starship, the universe is yours to explore. Soar amongst the clouds, burrow beneath the ground, explore vast caves systems or ancient ruins.

Trade, craft and upgrade

Build and upgrade your technologies, buying blueprints to add new components and additional modules to your starship, exosuit, exocraft and multitool. The more powerful your tech the more hostile environments you'll be able to explore and prosper from.

Connect with the universe

Follow the distant voices of the cosmos on wild adventures that will answer the deepest mysteries about the universe. Hunt the mysterious Atlas, search out the centre of the galaxy, help a stranded traveller or seek wisdom from the first of your kind.

Put down roots

Build your own habitable bases anywhere on any planet you choose. Mine local resources, farm rare plant species, build landing pads and trade hubs, land-roving vehicles, race tracks and specialist terminals to develop new weapons and technology.
