‘No Man’s Sky’: Game Can Be Completed in 30 Hours; Gameplay Leaked Online [VIDEO HERE]By Shunie Pearl C. Dela Cruz, UniversityHerald Reporter
Just a week before the release of the much anticipated video game 'No Man's Sky', the game copy was reported to be leaked online by anonymous. This caused a meltdown to a lot of fans when a member of an online discussion forum in Reddit claimed that he bought a copy of the game for $1,250.00 in an online auction website ahead of the release date and constantly publishing in-game footages.
As reported by Kotaku in their website, "Over the past few days, players with early copies of No Man's Sky have been posting streams and impressions of their experiences. As a result, fans of the game - really, fans of the game's marketing and hype - have started fretting about No Man's Sky's length, bugs, and lack of variety, among many other things."
The game creator Sean Murray advised the fans not to read spoilers to preserve the excitement and fun. As reported by BBC, Murray said on his Twitter, "We've spent years filling No Man's Sky with surprises. You've spent years waiting. Please don't spoil it yourself." He added, "Take a break from reading about it and picking vids apart. You can experience it for yourself soon."
After the leak, some fans would say that the game can be completed in 30 hours instead of hundreds of hours as claimed by the developers. According to a poster in Reddit who call himself Daymeeuhn, the players can fast track their way to the core. He said, "Contrary to what a lot of people think, I have done a lot of what the game has to offer. I actually intentionally took time out of my warp jumping...to break up the monotony of it." However, despite the warp speed woes, Murray insisted that the journey to the core of the universe will take the player hundreds of hours.
'No Man's Sky' is a game that revolves around a universe that is populated with 18.4 quintillion planets where players need to explore. The game will be released on August 12, 2016.
