No Man’s Sky players are now being offered refunds by Steam, even if you have playtime on the game. The game has faced a lot of criticism since its launch on August 8, with many gamers realising that the game isn’t what was promised to them.
A lot of gamers ended up pre-ordering the game due to the hype around it, but soon realised that it was different than what they expected. The result? Steam now has thousands of users requesting refunds. The game has received mixed reviews on Steam’s website, with the top review giving the game a ‘Not Recommended’ tag that has been agreed upon by more than 7,000 people. Most of the remaining reviews for the game also carry the ‘Not Recommended’ mark.
Many users on Reddit have shared successful refund stories with the game, even after they have played the game. People who have ordered the game from Sony and Amazon US are also receiving refunds for the game, according to an NDTV report.
A report by Gamer Revolution has said that No Man’s Sky has already lost 85 per cent of its users since its launch.
No Man’s Sky promises a user unlimited space exploration, with a possibility to find over 18 quintillion planets. The ever expanding game is not an action packed one, doesn’t have a multiplayer mode or even a set of goals/ defined storyline. Many users have been left disappointed because the game is repetitive, and exploring planet-after-planet does not yield any particular achievements.
The game is designed for people who do not want set rules to define their gameplay, and can really enjoy an open world game. If you want your game progress to be fast, this game is not for you. Users playing the game have also reportedly been facing a lot of troubles with the game. The games developer, Hello Games, had recently announced that they were going to hire a quality assurance team to address the most critical issues with the game.
