No Man’s Sky PC and PS4 Versions Announced
Sony also today announced an $80 Limited Edition PS4 version for retail, while iam8bit and developer Hello Games have partnered to make a $150 “Explorer’s Edition” for the PC edition.
The Limited Edition comes with the game in a steelbook case, as well as the following content:
- Adventures in No Man’s Sky Comic – Featuring two stories set in the No Man’s Sky universe, with contributions from Watchmen co-creator Dave Gibbons, Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Star Trek: Titan writer James Swallow, and sci-fi illustrator Angus McKie

- TRADER CHARISMA – Receive a bonus set of valuable resources to gain an advantage in selling and trading.
- BOLTCASTER SM – Secure access to a powerful weapon blueprint, perfect for defending against hostile lifeforms and Sentinels.
The $150 Explorer’s Edition is described as a “lovingly crafted package, designed to evoke a sense of space nostalgia via the inclusion of a tin toy-style ship replica.”
Its centerpiece is a metal cast ship replica. iam8bit said it’s “spared no expense” to achieve “hyper-detail” for this ship, which is hand-painted. The bundle also comes with some decals you can apply to the ship’s body, while it also features a removable background display.
The Explorer’s Edition is limited to 10,000 units, so if you’re interested, you may want to preorder soon.
No Man’s Sky launches on June 21 across PS4 and PC.
