No Man's Sky PS4 DLC
In No Man's Sky for the PS4; Each world has its own ecosystem with potentially unforgiving conditions, such as desert worlds with large carnivorous worms. Players are initially given an uncharted universe to explore, where information about any planet's characteristics and life forms may be shared and updated with others. No Man's Sky does have a larger goal, to reach the center of the galaxy, driven by the availability of resources to the player, which improve as the player moves towards the center of the galaxy. Players need to collect, sell, and trade resources to acquire better ships and more fuel that lets them explore the more-centralized areas of the galaxy.
Hello Games' co-founder Sean Murray stated that a player could reach the center of the galaxy with between forty to one hundred hours of gameplay without focusing on any additional exploration, but will hope players instead find themselves involved in other activities enabled by the open nature of the game, such as managing a trade route or studying all the possible flora in the universe. The concept of No Man's Sky arose from Hello Games' co-founder Sean Murray sometime during the development of Joe Danger 2. Murray, a former developer at Criterion Games for the Burnout series, worried the studio would be falling into a rut of producing sequel after sequel as was the case at Criterion.
Most of the universe in No Man's Sky is procedurally-generated, including solar systems, planets, flora and fauna on these planets, and artificial structures like buildings and spacecraft. The development team developed a procedural generation system where they would first hand-create core structures and the art associated with those - such as a basic skeleton and skin for a creature - and then allow the algorithm to make randomized changes to that, as to make a wide variety of creatures, mimicking the diversity of species resulting from evolution on Earth. They made sure the elements of this generation process reflected the setting - creatures and plants inhabiting a planet that contained blue-colored minerals would be tinted blue as well.
