Hello Games and Sony PlayStation revealed a new video and details this week for the highly anticipated upcoming PS4 exclusive title, No Man’s Sky. You can check out the new video focusing on the game’s combat system in the player below.
During No Man’s Sky, players are given a multi-tool to defend against deadly predator creatures and to mine resources. Attacking creatures or mining resources will call attention from Sentinels, a robotic force looking to keep each planet in a natural, undisturbed state. Fighting back against the Sentinels in the game will raise the wanted level for the player’s character. This will produce a stronger wave of Sentinels, changing them from flying drones to quadrupedal machines, towering walkers and eventually dropships.
The sentinels also patrol space throughout the game. Attacking traders for valuable goods or scavenging resources from freighters also draws the attention of the Sentinels and raises the Wanted level for a character. There are even Sentinel police ships patrolling space.
Another threat players will face in the game comes in the form of the Pirates. Pirates will require players to evade or escape or to fight back in order to defend their cargo.
No Man’s Sky finally hits the shelves on August 9. The game will be available exclusively for the PlayStation 4.
