That crazy, open galaxy space sim No Man’s Sky got a fresh look at The Game Awards

Hello Games’ latest trailer for No Man’s Sky, a procedurally generated, multiplayer outer space wonderland coming to PlayStation 4 at some point in 2015, is all about travel. Take a stroll around on a planet’s surface (hey, check out that nifty mech-thing). Zip through spaceways at warp speed in your own, personal spaceship. Or step through an alien portal on an unexplored world because hey, that’s totally something a smart person would do, right?

No Man’s Sky‘s “Portal” trailer debuted at The Game Awards on December 5. Hello founder Sean Murray took to the stage to introduce the trailer, then went on to share the news that instrumental electronic rock band 65daysofstatic (think Boards of Canada) will be providing the soundtrack.

The big remaining question is that elusive release date. The vast, completely random galaxy in No Man’s Sky is no doubt filled with secrets, but only Murray and his team have a sense of when we’ll get to dig them out.
