No Man’s Sky has generated immense hype since its announcement. Now that we’re only a few weeks away from launch, developer Hello Games has begun releasing a series of trailers highlighting the core aspects of the game. The first one shows off exploration, so hit the jump for more in T-minus 5, 4, 3, 2, 1…

Besides teasing the sweet soundtrack, the trailer also showcases the sheer scale and variety of the game. It promises “18 quintillion planets”, (which is the number 18 followed by 30 zeroes) and prompts players to explore to the centre of the universe. Nothing else by way of story is revealed, but we do get a look at more weird planets and alien lifeforms.

No Man’s Sky is set to launch on 9 August for PC and PS4.
