No Man's Sky servers overloaded as players discover 10 million species

No Man's Sky is out there and it's really, really, REALLY big. So big that it might be about to topple over at any moment.

Lead developer Sean Murray has been tweeting about the early hours of the launch with some pretty amazing facts, including the discovery of over 10 million species in a single day.

That's pretty incredible and a sign of how many players have already logged into their own unique universe. It's also probably quite scary for the small team at Hello Games, who are desperately hoping it doesn't all come apart at the seams.

At least the actual online elements of the game are pretty limited and you can play it totally solo. Our sessions so far were played offline and everything proceeded perfectly well, bar an inability to upload discovered species to the database. That is a handy way to earn credits but won't break the game.

To stop that from happening, Murray has some advice.

We're a bit skeptical about whether there's any real multiplayer in No Man's Sky at this point with the sheer amount of shared data it would require but just keeping these elements in play is still mighty impressive.
