We’ve been asking for VR support for No Man’s Sky, Hello Games’ enormous space simulator, for as long as the game’s been around. But, after a series of updates this week, fans think that support may actually be about to happen, and there’s a lot of evidence to support them.
If you haven’t dived into No Man’s Sky’s extensive viral marketing campaigns already then it can be hard to figure out what’s really going on, but there do seem to be some genuine hints that VR support may finally arrive soon. Hello Games has long been running an alternate reality game (ARG) tying into its space epic called Waking Titan.
It consists of a series of fake websites, phone numbers and more that provide clues for players to figure out, usually hinting at what’s to be included in the next update for the game. Well, first up, the game’s community thinks it’s found the next Walking Titan site (based on a code that was then translated to an IP address), which supposedly offers a Chinese wearable device that influences a user’s dreams. It’s basically a futuristic VR device.
Tellingly, though, images of the company’s CEO and founder were found on stock photo websites, suggesting the entire thing is fake. The tech is called W/Are (which, yes, sounds like VR) but the logo above actually resembles V/RE, too.
That might not seem like enough to go on by itself, but Hello Games founder Sean Murray supposedly added his own hints this week. A now-deleted tweet (still embedded here) featured an image of his phone with the code 6d, 6f, 72, 70, 68, 65, 75, 73 on it. Read more from uploadvr.com…
