No Man's Sky PC will have no preload

But it is still coming tomorrow at 1 p.m. ET / 10 a.m. PT.


If you have been anxiously waiting the PC build of No Man's Sky while your PS4 pals are already scouring the universe, have no fear. You will still get the game tomorrow, but you just won't be able to preload it before it goes live at 1 p.m. ET / 10 a.m. PT via Steam.

That word comes from the official site, which added in the detail earlier today (via Wario64). Developer Hello Games also said it is working on a patch for a couple of known issues, such as PS4 pre-order items: "People who have pre-ordered the game and want to redeem their special items may not be seeing them because they are named differently in the game. The Alpha Vector ship is named Domanish S84 in-game, and (in the US) the Rezosu AZ65 is named Final Shadow XIV in game."

You can still pre-order the game on Steam and get the Horizon Omega ship "equipped with an upgraded hyperdrive and increased firepower to help you travel faster and survive longer on your interstellar journey." Of course, the faster travel may just allow you to catch up with your friends who are already light years ahead of you after a three-day head start.

Once you get started tomorrow, be sure to get a handle on some of the things you can do in game early on, and tleanr the ins and outs of ship repair and refueling.
