No Man s Sky released to a decidedly lukewarm reception earlier this year, with critics pointing out the game s repetitiveness, lack of content, and somewhat homogeneous procedurally generated worlds.
Boundless, produced by developer Wonderstruck, coming soon to PC and PlayStation 4, looks like it could deliver much of what fans were expecting when No Man s Sky released in August.
Unlike the solo adventures of No Man s Sky, Boundless takes place in a single, online universe described by developer Wonderstruck as a huge graph.
Worlds begin as unsettled regions that must be developed by individual players.
Then gather together in a guild to claim enough land to construct a city, said director James Austin on the PlayStation Blog.
If your city is the most prestigious on the planet then you claim the title of its capital and rule the world.
