All the Interesting Places You'll Go (and the Aliens You'll Blow Up) in No Man's Sky

We’ve been excited for No Man’s Sky, the space exploration video game that’s been dazzling gaming fans ever since it was first revealed, for ages. But with the game due in just a few weeks, you can now get a closer look at all the gorgeous unknown worlds you can explore... and then blow the living crap out of, should you so desire.


Yes, it’s the bit of “boldly going” that Captain Kirk always conveniently forgot to mention at the end of his stirring introduction, but this new look at No Man’s Sky is all about all the ways you can laser beam and missile the creatures and civilizations you meet during your journey to explore the 18 quintillion planets in the game’s universe.


That’s a lot of stuff to blow up. Check it out!

No Man’s Sky will finally release on Playstation 4 and PC on August 9th.
