It doesn't look like it was supposed to be released quite yet, but the power of the internet has made sure it'll stay up regardless. So to cap off the afternoon, here's a quick look at what fighting in No Man's Sky will be like.
The trailer was uploaded and hastily removed, but some quick-thinking folk managed to save it and reupload it to YouTube nevertheless. I'd expect Sony and Hello Games to officially republish the trailer tomorrow morning in a higher quality.
But for now, you get a 720p look into some more of the fighting elements in No Man's Sky. There's a couple of sidearms I don't remember seeing before, although my main concern about the space combat still remains. But let's watch the trailer first.
So my main worry with the space combat is that while it's advertising "EPIC SPACE BATTLES", there never seems to be a great deal of units or enemies flying around the screen at any one time.
Take the segment from 18 seconds onwards. There's plenty of ships, but hardly any of them are moving. Nothing seems to be responding to the player's cannon fire. The action on the ground looks a lot more lively, though. Those laser spitting robots look like they'll be fun to fight.
Anyway, three weeks. That's how long until NMS launches in Australia. Just three weeks.
