The information comes way of No Man’s Sky’s PlayStation Store listing. In which the final download size looks to be a mere 3.4 GB. This may come as a shock, considering the colossal proposition of No Man’s Sky’s original pitch many years ago.
However, after some digging it can be realized that the comprehension behind the small volume of its download isn’t reflected at all for the boastful claims of the content. The humble founder of Hello Game’s Sean Murray in an interview–explained that the small file-size is due to the algorithms being compact with its randomly generated planets.
Ahead of the game’s release, if you want more of a taste of the rich atmosphere of No Man’s Sky give a listen to the slick soundtrack.
No Man’s Sky releases August 9th. You can pre-order it on Amazon here.
