No Man's Sky VR

No Man’s Sky VR is the virtual reality port of the game No Man’s Sky launched in 2016 on PS4 and PC. Find out everything you need to know about this title which promises to be one of the most ambitious VR games to date…

Originally launched in 2016 on PS4, No Man’s Sky was a particularly promising and ambitious game. This space simulator stands out by offering the player the freedom to explore a vast galaxy where each planet is procedurally generated. Understand that each place you discover will be unique, and that the experience will be different for each player.

When it was released, the game was unfortunately disappointing. Many features expected were not at the rendezvous, like the multi-player mode. However, the independent developer Hello Games did not throw in the towel and relied on player feedback to improve its title.

Over time, the experience has been refined to finally deliver on these promises. A total of six major updates have been deployed (Foundation, Path Finder, Atlas Rises, NEXT, Abyss and Visions). Now, the upcoming arrival of the No Man’s Sky update: Beyond represents a major milestone for the project as No Man’s Sky will now be playable in virtual reality…

What is No Man’s Sky VR?

No Man’s Sky VR is the full port of No Man’s Sky virtual reality. It will be proposed from August 14, 2019, with the update Beyond of the game for PS4 and PC. It will be possible to play VR games on PSVR, Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Valve Index and other Steam VR headsets.

You can choose to play with a controller, as for the original game, or with PS Move and motion detection controllers for PC headsets. Knowing that the game was already played in a first-person view, porting leaves the experience virtually unchanged.

It will even be possible to load your old backup to play directly in virtual reality. In addition, you can play with non-VR players since both modes will be hosted on the same server. The only difference is that you are now immersed in this universe of all possibilities

You will be able to freely conquer unknown planets, collect resources, pilot your spaceship, meet other players, terraform worlds, build structures and embark on epic space battles. All through the screen of your virtual reality headset…

In other words, this VR game promises to be the most ambitious of 2019 and perhaps even since the launch of the first VR headphones for the general public. For many fans, this game is cut for virtual reality and will take full scope on this new medium.

Price and release date

No Man’s Sky is already available on PS4 and PC. However, the Beyond Update will be deployed starting August 14, 2019. It will be possible to play VR from this date on PSVR and major PC headsets such as HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, Valve Index or Pimax 5K.

The game is available for €49.99 on PS4 and €54.99 on Steam. However, until August 21, 2019, you will enjoy a 50% discount on Steam and PlayStation Store. This is the perfect time to embark on this adventure…
