We all saw the pre-release footage of massive space fights and epic battles against massive battlecruisers. But so far, most people have just fought off the odd bandit and mined a few space rocks.
But if this latest video is anything to go by, sentinel fleets are awesome and I want to fight one right now.
YouTuber Explorer Of The 4th Reich, who’s only uploaded two No Man’s Sky videos despite the name, showed what happens when you get the “Sentinel Starships incoming” prompt instead of the usual nonsense about hostile scans.
It basically turns No Man’s Sky into something out of Battlestar Galactica, with your lone ship pitched against waves of Sentinel fighters and a massive battlecruiser decked to the halls with turrets.
The video also neatly highlights one of the bigger issues with the game — the tedium of having to constantly recharge your deflector shield. Given the way you can recharge your shield with different resources, I’m not entirely sure people would want their shields to automatically recharge all the time.
But hopefully a mod will fix that soon enough. In the meantime … damn. I just want to dogfight all the time now.
