No Man's Sky is available today on the PS4, but many of those (including myself) that pre-ordered on Steam are having to wait an additional 3 days to strap in and blast off. To make the wait more grueling, there has been no mention when pre-loading will be available on Steam. As a game-developer, I applaud Hello Game's decision to hold the game until it is ready, gamer-rage and all. (Yes, there were even death threats.) As a gamer, I am impatiently checking Steam for an option to download to no avail. :(
According to Hello Game's Sean Murray, they were/are working on a last minute patch that completely updates the game before it even releases. Some players, that paid up to $1300, to get the game early aren't even playing the same game, because the game has actually changed that much. Talk about karma-to-the-face. If you're a PC gamer, it's probably best to stay away from game sites for the next few days. Me? I JUST WANNA BLAST SOME F*%&ING ELLIENS.
