Calling No Man’s Sky a huge sandbox game is an understatement. Just how huge are we talking about? The game’s universe is scaled to 64-bit number. In layman terms for us non-math genius, the universe consists of 18,446,744,073,709,551,616 planets. Try to wrap your head around those figures. That’s 18 quintillion of unique planets with its own near infinite flora & fauna that varies from planet to planet.
While on a planet, players can gather resources for crafting elements that will be used to upgrade or repair equipment or ship. Players can also trade gathered resources at trading post or space station where player’s equipment & ship can be further enhanced by purchasing upgrades.
