No Man's Sky was released earlier this week for PS4, and now PC players can join in on the action. The space exploration game is available right now on Steam.

You can head over to the Steam page and pick it up here. You need 10 GB free on your hard drive to install it, but it's actually not that big at all. The entire game will only take up about 2.5 GB of your drive. It also has a bunch of changeable graphics settings, which you can see below.

Minimum Specifications:

  • Processor: Intel Core i3
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics: nVidia GTX 480, AMD Radeon 7870
  • Storage: 10 GB available space

Although the Steam page doesn't list recommended specifications, it'll be advantageous if you have a beefier graphics card and processor because of the resource-heavy procedural generation systems in the game.
