New Blood Interactive Studio Leader Dave Oshry on my microblog noticed that the share of positive reviews of the space adventure No Man’s Sky on Steam has finally exceeded 70%.
Breaking the 70% barrier to play on Valve’s digital store means a shift from the average rating of reviews from “mixed” to “mostly positive,” a milestone that Hello Games has been building since release.
Recall that at the launch in August 2016, No Man’s Sky was met with hostility (the game missed several promised functions at once) and in April 2017 her reviews on Steam were “mostly negative.”
The developers, however, did not give up and continued to improve No Man’s Sky. Since the release, the game has received 17 content updates – the last of which was released as recently as September 1.
The mentioned patch – Frontiers – added to No Man’s Sky the ability to become the caretaker of a procedurally generated alien settlement and much more. Full changelog is available on the project website…
No Man’s Sky is out on PC (Steam), PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S. On PC and Sony consoles, the game is also available in a version for VR headsets.
