No Man's Sky 0908
"No Man's Sky" Day zero patch is out. Hello Games

Hello Games’ “No Man’s Sky” has received some positive response following the hype. But it seems that Sony’s newest console, the PS4 Neo, will provide an entirely different experience.

Speaking to Daily Star, Sean Murray hinted that a more powerful PS4 console may actually result in changes to the overall experience of “No Man’s Sky”—far beyond just better graphics, compared to other games.

“For our game, it’s procedurally generated. So more powerful hardware doesn’t just mean upgraded textures or a higher framerate. It means we can fundamentally change the experience,” said Murray to Daily Star. “You can have—and you’ll see this from our patch notes—we’re able to change huge things in the universe, because we have complete control.”

Indeed, the changes for the day zero patch of “No Man’s Sky” is not the average change that most first-day patches will do to games.

Murray suggested the change in experience, from something as small as denser design of flora and fauna to as big as changes in the types of worlds that could exist in “No Man’s Sky.”

The good thing about this is that fans may not have to wait for too long to see how this will all play out on the PS4 Neo. Sony has finally announced that the PS4 Neo will be showcased in an event on Sept. 7.

According to CNet, the invitations to the media were sent a day after rumour broke of the possible September event for Sony’s more powerful console. The only reason why this kind of event will be held is to announce the new console, as the speculations go.

The PS4 Neo, which is an upgraded version of the PS4, has already been in the pipeline. It’s looking to offer a higher experience in gaming thanks to its Ultra HD 4K graphics.

There’s also the possibility of announcements made related to the PlayStation VR. A September event does give Sony the advantage of whetting PS4 players’ appetite for the incoming holiday season in a few months’ time.
