Game does not use Superformula

Meanwhile, Sean Murray, managing director of the game has replied to accusations that said that his company had used a patented 'superformula' to power the game, without taking permission from the developer.

Superforumula is a concept that was proposed by Johan Gielis on the superellipse. The concept has formula that can used to describe nature's complex shapes and curves.

"No Man's Sky doesn't actually use this 'superformula' thing or infringe a patent. This is a non-story... everybody chill. I wish Johan Gielis, the author, all the best in future. We're going to meet and chat maths once the game is out," said the Twitter post.

The game definitely uses a complicated algorithm that is used to procedurally generate the galaxy in the game.

Meanwhile, reports have emerged that there is a no requirement of PlayStation Plus subscription to play the game online.

Recently, the game's soundtrack, played by 65daysofstatic, an English band is now available for pre-order, costing $11.99 on iTunes. There are 10 tracks and will be out on Aug. 5.
