No Man's Sky is a sci-fi survival adventure set in procedurally generated universe shared between all players online. The player character begins their journey on a randomly generated planet and is free to explore their world and even the cosmos aboard their spacecraft at their leisure.
While the in-game universe is designed to be persistent, No Man's Sky is not intended to be a multiplayer experience where players can join up one another; indeed, the game is playable offline singleplayer as well. While it may indeed be possible for players to eventually run into one another, the game designers largely expect players to impact their surroundings for others to witness in different ways.
One key example is the Atlas, an in-game knowledge database that catalogues player findings across the galaxy that can contain well over billions of star systems with their own planets and ecosystems. Players are encouraged to seek out materials and blueprints to craft equipment and even spacecraft necessary to traverse the planets they wish to explore.
Gamers had high expectations of No Man's Sky - perhaps a little too high. As the first procedural-based videogame ever to be published, it would've been better if the game was less hyped. No Man's Sky is a robust videogame, but it may become a little monotonous for some after playing for several days.
