No Man’s Sky Records: How many species have been discovered?

This is a seriously impressive achievement, showcasing just how vast and ambitious the world Hello Games has created truly is.

While players have already started bumping into each other, the potentially endless variety of wildlife strewn across the galaxy is certainly keeping us busy.

Games Editor Brett Phipps has already discovered a bunch of weird and wonderful things which you can check out below:
