An endless exploration

The biggest game to land this fall is "No Man's Sky." And we mean literally the biggest. This sci-fi survival adventure title features an estimated 18 quintillion planets! The massive game is procedurally generated, meaning that data algorithms randomly create the universe, its planets, the alien inhabitants and ecosystems. The result is a huge number of unique gameplaying experiences.

In "No Man's Sky," players explore the universe, collect resources and fend off inhospitable inhabitants. There are also interstellar dogfights (again, the alien spacecraft are also procedurally generated) as players go from planet to planet. The universe is hostile, so players must be careful if they want to survive. The fact that it's impossible to visit every single corner of "No Man's Sky" illustrates how limitless the potential is for the future of video games.
