No Man's Sky Brings A New Realm To Gaming: INFINITY

No Man’s Sky is a game about exploration and survival in an infinite procedurally generated galaxy.
The most amazing part about No Man's Sky is that it is truly an open universe. There are 18,446,744,073,709,551,616 planets in this universe. To bring things in perspective, if you visit each one for a single second, it will take you 585 billion years to see them all!

Another interesting fact is that the universe isn’t just randomly created. Everything exists for a reason, and is governed by math functions. Every detail is always consistent and makes sense. Its the result of hundreds of rules No Man's Sky team created.

What's more? The universe isn’t stored on your hard disk or on server somewhere. The world around you is generated by your PS4 at the point you visit it. Leave and it’s all gone, but if you return it is generated again exactly as it was. This also means the game will be completely playable offline.

The system is so vast that the development No Man's Sky development team sent a set of bots out into the void to send back gifs of planets. They can quickly review the gifs, lots at a time, to see what kinds of things are out there, and ensure it’s varied and interesting.
