It looks like Hello Games’ upcoming sci-fi experience, No Man’s Sky, could be compatible with virtual reality (VR) headsets. Studio founder Sean Murray recently revealed that he had planned to show a ‘VR demo’ for the title at the Game Developers Conference 2014 in San Francisco, which is running this week.
“First time in years I’ve not been at GDC,” Murray wrote on Twitter. “So Jelly. Working on something big so had to pull out. Cancelled my talk and a NMS VR demo :(”
Murray is yet to clarify his tweet or confirm if No Man’s Sky will indeed feature support for VR. That said, Hello Games hasn’t even announcement which platforms it will launch the title on yet, other than saying it could launch on consoles. If it does indeed include VR features, then it could be looking to launch on PC with the Oculus Rift headset or perhaps on PlayStation 4 with the newly-announced Project Morpheus.
No Man’s Sky was announced at the end of 2013. It’s a first-person experience in which players explore planets. Little is known about the title, though it certainly gained attention for its stunning visuals and ambitious goals. VRFocus will continue to follow the rumoured VR support and confirm its inclusion as soon as possible.
