No Man's Sky and Ready Player One Oasis

MowTinMowTin Posts: 1,916 Valuable Player
No Man's Sky will be the closest thing to the Oasis in VR.

1. Not just an open world but an open universe in VR. 

2. You can build in the universe. 

3. Multiplayer. You're in this open universe with friends

It all sounds just too good to be true. I'm sure there will be optimization problems and glitches at first. But I'm very very excited for this.

    The game launching for PSVR too gives me the most hope that performance will be great in PCVR. 
    Intel i7 7700K (4.5 GHz); MSI GeForce GTX 1080 8GB Gaming X (oc 2100 MHz gpu boost, 11 GHz mem speed); 16GB Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3200 MHz; MSI Z270I Gaming Pro Carbon AC (VR-Ready) mainboard; Samsung 960 Evo M.2 SSD + Toshiba P300 HD; Windows 10 OS; Valve Index and Oculus Rift CV1 - the latter nearly always using super sampling 2.0.

    That's my main concern--performance. Not just graphical but what happens when you try and meet up with friends. 

    But I think they're also adding a Vulkan update to Beyond. 

    Imagine exploring the oceans of a new world with a friend in VR. Skyrim VR is great but it's nowhere near this scale.

    Yeah,he says he tried it again this time on the index but he also has a Rift-S in the background. :)

    What I like is around 2:30 he mentions that they adapted some (all?) of the UIs for VR. You grab to and drag an interface towards you instead of the lazy pointer to a 2D interface that most devs do.

    He said he visited Hello Games (the devs) and got to play the game at their place - looks like he shot the video (where he's talking) at his own place.

    Wow, listen to the first 3 minutes where he talks about VR. Why can't all dev be like this? They just added the VR because they wanted to and they did far more than the bare minimum. They just thought it would be cool in VR. Then they reworked a lot of things so they work better in VR because they thought it was so awesome.

    That's the great mystery of VR - seems like everybody loves it, still less than 1% of Steam users have it, sigh. $399 are peanuts, most gamers have at least GTX 1060.

    If the VR release turns out worthwhile, I think we need to create a community clan!

    This looks kinda exciting, do you think you can just buy it outside of the steam and oculus environment's then wait for the update? I read it described as a 'pancake' game. cheers

    I've learnt to lower my expectations. That way I'm really happy when something turns out to be good.
  • snowdogsnowdog Posts: 7,587 Valuable Player
    Yup, I'm pretty hyped up too. Can't wait to start milking and riding these animals :D

    I'm just hoping that they're going to have a first person option for riding these things but I don't think that's very likely cos people will be revisiting their lunch lol :D

    I agree. Day 1 will be full of bugs and outages and angry complaining people. But Hello Games will get everything fixed eventually. 

    But it's really hard to lower your expectations for a full VR universe.

    Bugger. No update yet, will probably be tomorrow tomorrow rather than today tomorrow.

    Well I know what I'm talking about anyway :D

    My thoughts too. I'll probably end up walking around not knowing what to do in the game. I'll then get frustrated and curse the many in-game sub-menus, and then I notice that motion smoothing often kicks in and destroys presence - and that the devs use the wrong button for grabbing stuff, lol. But next year everything is perfect or I have completely habituated to the game :)

    I wonder when the update will be available, 10 am est?
