Goals for No Man’s Sky

No Man’s Sky is a game with no linear structure or story,  it’s gameplay is built on four pillars—exploration, survival, combat and trading. I am going list some of the goals I have when playing.

My priorities

  1. Survival — My first task will be surviving the planet I originally start on. If the planet is harsh and I have the resources to move to another planet in the solar system, I’ll try to do that.
  2. Exploration — Next, I will explore my surroundings, cataloguing the local flora and fauna. I will also be on the look out for structures built by intelligent life. I would very much like to learn an alien language, which will help with my next goal.
  3. Trading — While I hope to spend most of my time exploring planets, I would also like to interact with other species.
  4. Combat — I plan on doing as little combat as possible. This will probably change.
