Sean Murray and the team at Hello Games have announced their newest game at The Game Awards, called Light No Fire. Talking with Geoff Keighley on the main stage, Murray discussed the legacy and history of No Man’s Sky, a game that was announced at The Game Awards a decade ago. He then went on to unveil his new game, something he describes as even more ambitious and the ‘first real open-world game’.
Light No Fire is seemingly a massive online multiplayer experience where players can team up and go on journeys throughout a seamless open world. It all takes place on a planet and features crafting, base-building, action combat, and much more. Check out the trailer below.
With a history of enhancing the truth during these reveal moments, it’s a bit challenging to take Sean Murray at his word. However, Light No Fire most certainly seems like a beautiful and imaginative world that looks as though it would be a hoot to traverse. And surely after the backlash of No Man’s Sky’s launch, Murray wouldn’t stand there and lie again, right?
We also can’t deny just how much Hello Games continued to work on No Man’s Sky after launch, fixing the problems and really creating something much bigger and more impressive than what it was at launch. Perhaps Light No Fire could be the next 10-year-long project from Hello Games?
Light No Fire has been in development for 5 years but we don’t yet have a planned release date or even a set of confirmed platforms. The game does have a Steam page though, so check that out if you’re looking for more information.
