After multiple delays and four years of development, No Man’s Sky has officially gone gold. The most recent delay pushed the game out of releasing on June 21, to a new date of August 9. Many people were hesitant to accept this new date as a solid release, but it looks like we all have nothing to fear now. Sean Murray, the founder of Hello Games and creator of the game, tweeted a celebration photo of himself and the rest of the small development team today.

No Man’s Sky is a game about exploration and discovery, giving players a seemingly limitless universe to traverse. Players that find new planets or species of animals will have the option to name them, and according to Hello Games it’s very possible that a player could discover a planet that no one else will ever find. There’s still a fair amount of mystery surrounding multiple aspects of the game, but you can catch yourself up on everything that we know here.
No Man’s Sky launches on August 9, for PlayStation 4 and PC. It was recently announced that the game would also be receiving a concert tour showing off its soundtrack, you can also hear a brand new song from that soundtrack here. Hello Games also took some time to talk about some of the stories and lore behind No Man’s Sky with a new trailer.
