No Man’s Sky for PC? Here’s when you’ll be able to download it on Steam

If you’ve been patiently waiting to play No Man’s Sky on PC, it’s launching on Steam later tonight at 6PM, Hello Games has announced.

Unfortunately for PC players, the game does not support any kind of pre-loading, so you’ll have to commence the 2.6 GB download once the game unlocks.

This shouldn’t take too long, and might give you time to make a cup of coffee before setting out to discover over 18 quintillion planets.

No Man’s Sky launched earlier this week for PS4, and it has already captured the imagination of gamers everywhere.

Players have discovered over 10 million different species throughout the game’s procedural universe, which is an incredible achievement no matter how you slice it.
