UPDATE 4.45pm: There's a $150 (105) special edition version of No Man's Sky, dubbed the Explorer's Edition, which includes a model spaceship.

Just 10,000 will be available. Each set also includes a badge and an exclusive item to be revealed at the game's release. Mysterious.

This edition is available for pre-order now via IAm8bit.co.uk with either a Steam or GOG key for No Man's Sky's PC version included.


ORIGINAL STORY 4.00pm: No Man's Sky has got a firm, final release date, with Hello Games' ambitious space exploration game coming on June 24th.

The date would seem to be for both PC and PS4 versions, with Hello Games' Sean Murray saying both versions would release at the same time during the PC Gaming Show at last year's E3.

No Man's Sky was first unveiled at the tail-end of 2013, and it's been eagerly awaited ever since. We got to play a short chunk of it last week, and found that it's a spectacular, strange and slow sci-fi game (that can be as awe-inspiring as you might have imagined).
