Bethesda’s Starfield Boosts Popularity of No Man’s Sky
Bethesda’s highly anticipated RPG, Starfield, has been generating a lot of buzz online. However, it seems that the excitement surrounding this space adventure game has had a positive impact on another popular title in the genre.
Hello Games, the developer behind No Man’s Sky, recently announced that the game is experiencing its “biggest month” in the past few years. This is a significant achievement considering the game has been available for seven years. Sean Murray, the founder of Hello Games, shared this news on social media, highlighting the game’s success across all platforms, including PC, Xbox, Gamepass, Switch, PlayStation, Mac, and VR.
No Man’s Sky is available on more platforms than Starfield, including the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation. Despite a rocky start, the game has undergone significant improvements over time. In fact, Hello Games released a Nintendo Switch version of the game in October of last year, expanding its reach to a wider audience.
If you’re looking for an alternative to Starfield, No Man’s Sky is definitely worth considering. In our review of the Nintendo Switch version, we praised the game as a fantastic port. With all the previous updates and content included, along with the massive Waypoint update and a plethora of customization options, No Man’s Sky offers a compelling experience for survival fans. It’s also one of the most impressive ports we’ve seen on the Switch to date.
“With all of the game’s previous updates and content included — barring multiplayer at this point — and a plethora of customization options courtesy of the massive Waypoint update, this is an easy recommendation for survival fans and one of the most impressive ports we’ve seen on Switch to date.”
In addition to the Nintendo Switch version, No Man’s Sky received an ‘Echoes’ update last month. This update introduced a new robotic race, improved visuals, and even new anti-aliasing options specifically for Switch players. These continuous updates and improvements have contributed to the game’s ongoing success and popularity.
As Starfield continues to capture the attention of gamers worldwide, it’s fascinating to see the positive impact it has had on No Man’s Sky. The renewed interest in space exploration and adventure has undoubtedly benefited Hello Games and their ambitious title. Whether you’re a fan of Starfield or simply looking for an immersive space experience, No Man’s Sky offers a vast and ever-expanding universe to explore.
