No Man’s Sky: The UK’s ASA says Hello Games didn’t mislead customers

Upon deliberation, the UK’s Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has determined that Hello Games has not mislead customers with No Man’s Sky advertising.

After review of the 23 complaints lodged against No Man’s Sky, the ASA has sided with Hello Games and studio head Sean Murray.

“With regard to the game features queried by complainants, Hello Games provided gameplay footage showing these features, which they explained showed extracts from NMS on a PC with average specifications; these specifications were given,” the ASA said in a statement.

“The majority of the footage provided came from a play-through that had started from the beginning of the game and lasted for four hours. They also provided links to third party footage uploaded to a video-sharing platform by players of NMS, and a copy of the game.

No Man’s Sky, available on Windows PC and PS4, recently received a massive, free Foundation Update — though Stevivor’s Jay Ball still doesn’t rate it.
