Earlier, there were reports that a copy of No Man’s Sky had landed in the hands of an individual who further sold it to another guy for a whopping $2000. The guy who bought the game has been leaking information about it on Reddit.
According to the comments posted by daymeeuhn on Reddit, the center of the galaxy in No Man’s Sky can be reached in around 20-30 hours after exploiting a resource farming method.
Here are some of his comments:
“Around 25-30 hours. I’m about halfway there. 30% of the 100% distance has been just from the last few hours alone. With a YouTube video explaining how to do this I think someone could reach the center in no time, 20-30 hours easy.
“They have implemented some questionable design choices that allow you to essentially “farm” Warp Fuel in an endless pattern and just continuously warp at will almost nonstop, if you so desire to take advantage of it. I dunno if this was intentional, or if they just didn’t care, or if HG doesn’t actually have min/max gamers on their testing team to identify this stuff or what but I figured it out rather quickly and I’ve managed to jump pretty far in just a few hours of doing it.”
You can find the exact method of the process he has followed in this Reddit thread. Remember, this thread contains plenty of game spoilers.
There would certainly be some quicker ways to progress in the game which will be unveiled after its release. No Man’s Sky is a game which is based on exploration and discovery, which will definitely be time consuming.
However, many people thought it would take a lot of time to reach the game’s centre, but they might be a bit disappointed hearing this piece of news.
No Man’s Sky is scheduled to release for PC and PlayStation 4 on August 9.
