    Hello folks! I've been reading those last pages and after the last trailer i kinda want to try this game.

    Plan is to play on ps4. Any perfomace issues there?

    Been playing Elite Dangerous for a very long time, but since i achieved everything in that game (and since Frontier doesn't know what they're doing anymore) i want a space game where i can chill out and explore a little bit.

    Not that I'm aware of although I use a Pro these days. The flight physics are 4dof and nowhere near as good as ED.

    It's in a sale at the moment and is great value for discovery and exploration players but check some recent YouTube videos to show you what to expect.

    Anyone revisiting the game due to the new mega update v3.00? "Origins"

    XB1X, Had a little play earlier, saw a sandworm & a lightning storm (which looked good). Weather cycles seem more frequent to the point that every time I landed on a planet it was either during or incoming.

    I just hope we can play his on PS5 with some performance improvements. Reducing pop up and frame drops would be sweet. I’d love to go back to it but I have an original ps4 and on my 4K tv it doesn’t look that good, especially with all the pop in, frame issues and texture lag.

    It's a great game but I can't see myself as an adult putting countless hours on this sim.

    I bought the game 2 days ago and had no idea there was a big update coming yesterday! I'm really enjoying it so far, just cataloguing the various flora and fauna is interesting and while there are some things I'd change to make the experience better I think they've done an amazing job at improving the game since launch. That said the performance and pop-in on base PS4 is pretty terrible, it would be great to be able to play it on PS5 with improvements.

    On PC they quietly increased system requirements with every update. Ultra/1080p used to be fine for GPUs with 4GB VRAM, today it's 8GB. Medium today is the old Ultra. Not surprised it's running worse on a base PS4. (or Xbox). Some folks on PC can't even run the game anymore after they updated to Vulkan.

    Update v3.10 'Next Generation' announced:

    https://www.nomanssky.com/next-generation-update/

    Essentially a graphics overhaul for PS5 and Xbox One Series X|S. PC will get updated graphics too (at the expense of FPS for older systems no doubt)

    And yet more updates! :cheers: https://www.nomanssky.com/prisms-update/

    I have to say that almost five years after the release this is (still) a very enjoyable game. Sucks on PC if you don't have a fancy GPU though, as the system requirements have crept up along with the eye candy.

    @NLxAROSA I'm waiting for them to finish with the updates before I go back to it (I tried and failed to start a game maybe a couple of years ago), knowing me I'd play it, eventually get bored and never work up enough enthusiasm to go back and check out what's changed, or I would go back and end up confused by all the changes.

    It does look really good now from what I've seen, but... Yeah, the longer I wait, the more game I get so I'm not planning on playing this anytime soon, even though I want to. That might sound dumb but I've lost count of how many early access games I've bought, played to death and haven't played since they hit 1.0. In fact Wreckfest and Subnautica are the only two I can think of that I *have* gone back to after playing in early access.

    @neema_t : I don't think they'll stop with updates any time soon to be honest, they've just made the game look nice on next gen and I'm pretty sure there are content updates coming too. :lol:
