'No Man's Sky' - The Matrix Is Almost Ready
No Man's Sky is an algorithmically created infinite universe, created for you as you explore it. It cannot be fully described by the authors, because it has not been explored yet.
(No Man's Sky video)
A TRULY OPEN UNIVERSE If you can see it, you can go there. You can fly seamlessly from the surface of a planet to another, and every star in the sky is a sun that you can visit.
EXPLORATION IS SEEING THINGS THAT NO-ONE ELSE HAS EVER SEEN BEFORE Every creature, geological formation, plant and spaceship is unique.
SURVIVE ON A DANGEROUS FRONTIER You are alone and vulnerable, and will face threat everywhere, from deep space to thick forests, barren deserts to dark oceans.
BUILD FOR AN EPIC JOURNEY Collect precious materials and trade them for better spacecraft and upgrades for your suit and equipment.
PARALLEL UNIVERSES Choose to share your discoveries with other players, or not. You will never see another player, but you could make your mark on their worlds as well as your own.
Is No Man's Sky a beta release for The Matrix? Only time will tell.
(Red pill, blue pill ... the choice is yours...)
