Did a quick check and didn't see a thread so I figured I'd make one.

Am I the only one excited for this game? Here are some of the more informative videos I've come across:

Videos

E3 2015


Infinite worlds trailer


IGN first 18 minutes of gameplay


IGN first how the economy works


Sean Murray on the Stephen Colbert show


Paris game show trailer with June 2016 release date


There are many many more, but start with these to get your feet wet.

Images
coming soon!!

There is no release date as of yet but a lot of folks are anticipating an announcement soon due to the press coming up and the recent Colbert show appearance ( I know I know we heard that before with this game, but this time....)

Here is a pretty informative fan site someone made: http://www.galacticobserver.com/
And of course reddit is always there: https://www.reddit.com/r/NoMansSkyTheGame/

    I remember this from E3. Definitely intriguing, but it'll sink or swim based on how different the worlds continue to be over time.

    Overall, I'm cautiously interested.

    that first video makes it look like you're exploring the galaxy's planets in search of some gameplay

    the second video paints a better picture

    Sounds to good to be true, probably just randomly generated worlds that get boring after a while, does look fun and neat so far though.

    I think the community is the key here. If there are things like geocaching, the ability to have like your own online database and the ability to kind of script your own story for like crashed ships and old relics found on planets, I can see a lot of utility here. I'm curious as to post launch support. With a team of only 10 people I can imagine the workload being overwhelming.

    The math used is essentially fractals. It's how nature creates variation actually, though I don't presume the game to be quite as efficient. Nothing is really "random" though. You start with distance from the star a planet is, how big etc, which determines atmosphere which then in turn determines flora/fauna and any life.

    I've been following this game a long time now, shit's gonna be bananas even if people don't realize it yet.

    Game looks GDLK at first glance, but when you think about it it's like awesome all these cool vibrantly colored planets.....soo what happens when you land on them? What is there to actually do game play wise besides finding new planets? Is there combat? Puzzles? A story?

    There is a "story" in the sense that you are working to get to the center of the universe. Also your experience will depend on your play style. There are things called sentinels that act like space cops that go after you for killing local flora and fauna on certain planets. There is combat, both in space and with a etool that shoots.

    They have been purposely vague with how the game will play because they truly want you to do what you want.

    There are trading post and a whole economy that changes with the amount of material you discover. I think there will be a main narrative pushing you towards whatever is at the center of the universe but I really feel the community will make the story.

    Damn that was sort of a bummer, June 2016 is quite a bit away.... but here is the new trailer with a narrative which is new (I don't recall seeing one in any of the other trailers for the past 2 years)

    Sean Murray spoke about how things that were discussed but weren't a possibility at launch will now be possible. I'm guessing Sony really seen the need for a more fleshed out multiplayer experience

    Yea sony pretty much did all the early funding and paid for its marketing. They've been keynotes at e3 for the past 2 years. I think this game would be dope in VR.

    I was really interested in this while listening to stories over on GiantBomb, but the more they talked about it the less I got interested.
    Basically, it's not very likely that you'll ever encounter anyone else. I think it would be a lot more interesting if you would.. See if you can collaborate with someone on starting up a civilization.
    That's just my opinion though... Who knows. I am still very interested in seeing how this plays out.

    I'm waiting to see what people think of the game a month or so after release, it it's just 5 planets palette swapped xN then I'll leave it be. Hope it's good for those that are hype for it though.

    This seems like a cool concept, but I don't see how it can stay engaging. There really has to be multiplayer or some team or rival factions to fight with or territories to control. Boundless exploration seems like it won't keep my interest for long.

    It's not simply boundless exploration, there is plenty to do. The gameplay loop reminds me of Borderlands, because while on planets there are both indigenous animals and story related enemies to fight in a given area. And when you go to space there are plenty of opportunities for combat. This game is just such where you don't really HAVE to engage in a lot of combat if you don't want to. A game like this is really what you make it.

    Well that's better than I initially thought. I think they should add a system like this to the next star wars game. It would be HOT FIYAH!!!!

    The main talking point about NMS has been "okay each the art style is GDLK and the sense of scale is(Trump voice) huuuuuuge, but what else is there to do besides walk around?"

    The footage proves there's a lot to do like crafting, trading, deciphering alien language, FPS combat, space combat, exploring randomly generated everything, encounter stuff like black holes, and ultimately the goal is to upgrade your ship enough to reach the center of the universe for some unknown reason.

    So I get NMS has content and isn't simply just a walking simulator like many think it is, but it doesn't really grab me and make me go wow that looks amazing I need it ASAP! It's more like...looks pretty cool ill pick it up on sale sometime this summer or more likely Christmas.

    Go play EVE that's pretty much the entire point, although it's pretty realistic so it will take a lot of time and string commitment to said looting and blowing up ships to make it happen.

    Maybe they can install some kind of AI that constantly berates you and curses you out for not meeting your objectives, that might get your masochist rocks off.

    There is still the npc's which you can attack and steal from.
    There are also space pirates that you can fight or side with.
