No Man’s Sky May Not Have VR Support On Day One
No Man’s Sky is up there with the most eagerly anticipated games of the moment. Brought to us by HelloGames studios, No Mans Sky offers players a chance to explore a unique, procedurally generated universe, consisting of 14 quintillion stars. It is also a title that has been the at the base of many discussions with regard to it being “perfectly suited for VR”.
In a recent interview with Funny Kinda Games, Sean Murray, lead programmer for No Man’s Sky explained that “I’m probably saying too much here, but, I think ‘No Man’s Sky’ would be a really exciting title for VR. I think it would be cool, but we’re a tiny team working on this game right now.” However there Sean suggested that we could see VR support in the future when he stated, “After the game comes out we’ll just have to see what people most want. When we launch, we want people to see what we have in mind, which is exploring.” So it doesn’t look like No Man’s Sky will be getting VR support off the bat, however we still have our fingers crossed for it.
For those of you that don’t know about No Man’s Sky, it is a unique title from Hello Games that aims to deliver a completely explorable universe in its entirety. All of which is procedurally generated from the ground up, including the music. The art style for the game looks vibrant and exciting, and will offer a platform for some diverse playing styles.
If you were interested in getting a copy of No Man’s Sky, regardless of the VR support announcements, you will be happy to know that it has recently been made available for pre-order on steam and will be released on 24th June, approximately 3 months, 2 weeks, 3 days and 4 hours from the time of this post.
