Your Universe Awaits…
No Man’s Sky was first announced by Hello Games, a small team headquartered in England, way back in 2013. Ever since then, fans have been fervently awaiting the chance to explore the universe in the procedurally-generated space sim. Well, it’s finally time for lift-off as Hello Games added No Man’s Sky to the PlayStation Store yesterday.
Also available to download for the PS4 this week is Indigo Prophecy, one of the first games from Quantic Dreams. Originally released for the PS2 in 2005, the PS4 re-release includes 1080p visuals and full Trophy support. And speaking of PS4 re-releases, Activision and High Moon Studios have brought 2012’s Transformers: Fall of Cybertron to the PS4. This new-generation re-release also includes improved visuals and all three downloadable expansions.
Finally, Sony’s “PSN Play” pick this week is Brutal, a “3D re-imagining of the classic 2D ASCII dungeon crawler.”
