Does not offer in-game purchases, 'loot boxes' or 'battle/season passes'. After its initial release, No Man's Sky: Next and No Man's Sky: Beyond free updates substantially expanded the depth and features of the game.
Skill RatingThis game is enjoyed by 12-18 year-olds as it's a good match for their ability and maturity. The huge open world is the skill challenge here. You need to have the skill and maturity to explore and find your own fun. Along with this there is the management of resources, navigation and dealing with other players.
The option to manually save anytime isn't available to you until they can build a portable save point, before that you are only able to autosave by exiting your ship or activating a beacon.
