No Man’s Sky could one day have VR support
Hello Games are considering Oculus Rift or Project Morpheus support for No Man’s Sky.
“It’s something we’re thinking about” said Hello Games on the idea of bringing Oculus Rift and Project Morpheus support to their ambitious new title.
Many have dreamt of exploring the endless realms of space through virtual reality, and with No Man’s Sky, this could be coming sooner than you think.
In the latest issue of Edge (via Gamesradar), Hello Games’ Sean Murray was asked about the possibility of VR support for the upcoming game.
“I don’t know what I’m allowed to say,” Murray said, hinting at the possibility that VR support may be in the works, but he simply can’t acknowledge it yet.
Although Murray couldn’t confirm anything, he did give us a glimpse on how his studio views the concept of virtual reality.
“It’s something we’re thinking about,” he said. “Morpheus, Oculus… There’s nothing more cool and sci-fi than VR and a big procedural universe. I think that, for the people who want to just explore, and even for the space combat and things like that, it would be a good fit. Let’s put it that way”.

We have to agree with him there, we’d love to explore a cohesive universe through the world of VR, so long as there isn’t any giant space spiders.
Oculus Rift and Project Morpheus do not have an exact release date, with the former set to launch in early 2016 at an unspecified price point. Sony has confirmed that Morpheus will be coming next year, but it is far too early to talk about a price.
The sheer scale, scope and ambition of No Man’s Sky has an abundance of potential when it comes to VR, and would be the killer app Sony’s Headset sorely needs to push the product forward.
No Man’s Sky does not have a confirmed release date as of yet, but the galaxy-spanning title will be coming to PS4 and PC.
