A screenshot from No Man's Sky
The centre of No Man's Sky's near-infinite universe can be reached in 20-30 hours, or so claims a player who has acquired an early copy of the much anticipated PS4 and PC game.
This comes from Reddit user daymeeuhn, who has been posting footage from the game online since Friday 29 July, prompting game director Sean Murray of Hello Games to plead with fans to avoid spoilers.
Many of the videos have been pulled, but one of the user opening the game can still be viewed.
No Man's Sky tasks players to exploring a universe made up of billions of procedurally generated planets filled with procedurally generated flora and fauna, scouring for resources and unlocking the universe's secrets.
Doing so also grants players two free "Warp Fuels" – which allow players to move out of the system they're in and closer to the centre of the universe.
