The final teaser trailer for Hello Games' highly anticipated space exploration survival adventure No Man's Sky has been released, which focuses on the deadly, hostile environments players can explore and survive in the game's near-infinite universe. According to the indie developer, the sci-fi game can be broken down into four basic aspects – Explore, Fight, Trade and Survive.
Giving gamers a glimpse of some of the varied obstacles they will face whilst exploring the game's quintillion worlds, the new trailer shows off different hazardous conditions players will need to protect themselves from, including high radiation levels and brutally harsh weather. Players will also have to combat against other hostile lifeforms, wildlife and aliens lurking on different planets as well.
While much has been discussed about the game's stunning massive universe and the gorgeous terrains of its procedurally-generated worlds, the new trailer does showcase a different, edgier side of the game where not every planet is gorgeous and tranquil.
"While some planets are beautiful and serene, many have extreme conditions that make survival difficult," the trailer's description reads. "Some planets will have extreme temperatures – from freezing lows to scorching highs – while others are drenched in toxic rain, heavily irradiated or completely submerged."
"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 highlighted in the game's previous Trade trailer, players will also be able to upgrade their equipment and ship using material they find or have purchased in the game. The Survive trailer briefly shows how players can upgrade their ExoSuits using zinc and later iron to survive the treacherous conditions of a new dangerous planet.
"For the unprepared, surviving on planets with extremes will be a challenge," the description continues. "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."
No Man's Sky is slated to release on 10 August in the UK and Europe and 9 August in North American for PS4. The PC version of the sci-fi game has been slightly pushed back and will release on 12 August.
