One of the highlights of a very positive Sony press conference last night was a stunning trailer by a small, UK based development team called Hello Games. It’s called No Man’s Sky and it’s a stunning, procedurally generated space / world exploration title coming to the PS4 and PC.

Last nights’s trailer was preceded by an introduction by founder of Hello Games, Sean Murray. He described the team’s desire to create a boundless universe where players can join each other in procedurally generated universes and where every player will receive their own, completely unique home planet. The trailer is majestic, beginning as a wander through a planet’s surface admiring vegetation and wildlife before whisking the viewer into the heavens to explore the galaxy. Impressive stuff.

Although last night was all about the PS4, No Man’s Sky started life as a PC game and a few months ago, the team tweeted themselves receiving and playing with an Oculus Rift HD Development Kit. The team had previously stated they’re interest at the possibility of support for the VR Headset but as of yet have yet to officially confirm that it’s in development.

We’ll try to find out more on the game and likelihood of Oculus Rift support at E3 this week. In the mean time, cop a look at these screenshots and the 2014 E3 trailer above.

    It’s not often a game blows my mind like this. It’s now happened TWICE! When I saw the first trailer and now when I saw this one…

    It would be a crime for VR NOT to support the Rift. I can’t wait for Star Citizen to explore the stars in VR, but in this I would be exploring the planets.
