What is No Man's Sky about?

It's a cosmic adventure giving a taste of exploring uncharted worlds. Procedurally generated universe and its planets will take us to different corners of the cosmos each time. On your way, you're bound to meet various creatures, and sometimes representatives of alien races. No Man's Sky also features crafting, traders and missions to complete. The game places a strong emphasis on exploration and survival, allowing you to almost endlessly play as a space farer.

What makes it worth playing?

Recommending this game a few years ago was risky – you either came across as silly or uninformed. No Man's Sky was launched in terrible technical condition, offering just a fraction of the content promised by the creators. Fortunately, the studio didn't abandon the game and diligently fixed all the shortcomings, slowly but surely adding the missing content. Today it's a completely different production, which should provide a lot of fun to fans of single-player gameplay. And if anyone was discouraged during the release period, it's definitely worth giving the game a second chance now – especially when it's available in a Game Pass package.
