Why there won’t be any reviews for No Man’s Sky on launch day

No Man's Sky

Excited for No Man’s Sky but would prefer to wait for reviews before laying down your hard-earned cash?

You may be waiting a while as according to a report by thisgengaming, there will be no advanced copies of the game given to reviewers before launch.

The site confirmed that publications would receive review copies of the game but only on release day, just like everyone else.

Excitement surrounding the game seems to have been affected after a gamer was able to purchase a copy of the game early and show off some of the gameplay.

Whether fans have a reason for concern remains to be seen, but it’s worth noting that not having early review access is not always a bad sign.

DOOM was released without early review copies in May this year and is currently one of the highest-rated games of the year, boasting a score of 85 on Metacritic.
