Joe Danger developer Hello Games has revealed its next project, No Man's Sky.

No Man's Sky is a procedurally-generated first-person exploration game that sees players venturing on quests across the galaxy, exploring planets and competing against other players in space combat.

Developed by just four people, the ambitious title is described by Hello Games as a "huge game... about exploration".

"In our game, when you stand on a planet and you see a mountain, if you see it, you can walk there," explained Hello Games. "If you see that planet on the horizon, that's a real place. You can get in your ship and you can go there."

Platforms and a release date for No Man's Sky have yet to be announced.
