No Man’s Sky announced for PlayStation VR2 with a trailer at the State of Play

A new version of the No Man’s Sky designed exclusively for PlayStation VR2, Sony’s virtual reality headset. The announcement was accompanied by a trailer which you can view in the player above. At the moment this re-edition does not yet have an official release period and therefore for more details we will have to wait for the news arriving in the coming months.

The trailer does not offer particular details on the PlayStation VR2 version of No Man’s Sky, but we assume that all the contents introduced with the substantial updates published by Hello Games from launch to today will be present.

Except for surprises, there will therefore also be the innovations introduced with Outlaw, the outlaw-themed update 3.85 published last month, as well as all future content, given that for Hello Games the works on the game are not even remotely complete.

We’ve rebuilt spaceships and land vehicle cockpits and control systems, overhauled menus and interfaces, teleport controls, terrain manipulation, and warp effects to enhance the dynamism, strategic depth and thrills of your adventure. We have left nothing to chance in order to offer maximum involvement“says Hello Games’ Sean Murray with a post on the PlayStation Blog.

In the years that followed, watching a newly dropped planet disappear from view, watching your own spaceship teleport above us, or setting up a towering base in VR, alone or with friends, were unforgettable experiences. Seen with a VR headset, the creatures seem closer and more familiar, the space battles more ferocious and frenetic, the planetary panoramas wider and more evocative.

Being able to play No Man’s Sky with PS VR was a small miracle, given the technical challenge we faced to bring an infinite and cohesive universe into the futuristic headset. Many years later, technology has taken further steps forward and offers us the possibility to engage the players much deeper.

The power of PlayStation 5 and the new PlayStation VR2 hardware, including new Sense controllers, greatly amplify the feeling of involvement and credibility of the experience. “
