The final trailer outlining what exactly you can do in No Man’s Sky is out, and it’s all about surviving.
The video shows off many of the game’s dangers, which appear to be toxicity, radiation, deadly lifeforms, and more.
“For the unprepared, surviving on planets with extremes will be a challenge,” the video’s description reads. “Every second spent exposed in the elements will chip away at your protective shielding, which can be restored by taking shelter or expending resources to recharge it. By upgrading your suit’s technologies, you can survive harsh climates for longer, run faster, jump higher and explore for longer.”
“Whether you die under the claws of a creature, by the lasers of a space pirate or just succumb to the elements, death will have a real impact on your progress. Resources will be lost and technology damaged as your body is regenerated at your last save point, so make sure to put up a fight!”
As the fourth and final video in the series, survival is just one of the things you’ll be doing in No Man’s Sky, in addition to exploring the vast galaxies, engaging in some space combat, and trading every kind of loot that you find.
No Man’s Sky launches on PlayStation 4 on August 9th and on PC on August 12th.
