Good luck avoiding that dragon.

2. No Man’s Sky

No Man’s Sky is an upcoming open-world survival space game that throws you into an infinite procedurally generated universe.

You can do whatever you want. Play as a fighter, a trader or an explorer. It’s up to you. There is no predefined goal in No Man’s Sky. You set your own objectives. Try and reach the center of the galaxy, hunt space pirates, find rare resources to sell for the highest price. You are not forced to do anything. Instead, the game gives you the freedom to make your own choices.

Crafting involves upgrading three things: your weapon, your ship and your suit. You can find different types of these items which have different layouts for slots. Slots can be used for upgrades or for storing items.  There are different types of ships, each suited for different play styles. A trader ship has a larger cargo capacity than other ships allowing for more items and resources to be carried, but they are slower than the explorer ship. Your weapon and suit, on the other hand, can only be upgraded. These two and the ship have their own “slots”. It’s like an inventory but instead of just using it to store items you also use it to place upgrades.

The weapon has four main areas of technology that can be upgraded: Grenade, Laser, Projectile and Scanning. For example, a Land Disruptor is a Grenade technology upgrade which you use as an excavation tool to create craters on the ground by throwing remotely charged plasma grenades. Your suit also has several technology categories that can be upgraded: Armor, Protection, Stamina and Utilities. You can, say, upgrade to a Jetpack which is a Utilities technology upgrade that is quite useful when trying to reach high places but it also helps in exploring underground tunnels because you don’t have to fear about getting stuck. Crafting these upgrades will involve finding a variety of materials found on various planets.

Plutonium, one of the many materials you will find in No Man’s Sky.

You will have to figure out what materials can be found on different planets. There are many different materials, such as Plutonium, Carbon, Silicon and much more.  There are various rules that dictate what kind of material you will find on a planet, things like the distance between the planet and the sun.

Upgrade your weapon or change its ammunition that uses many different kinds of materials.

No Man’s Sky releases on August 12, 2016.
