It isn't the first fan-made app for a sprawlingly huge game, but let's hope that like Rockstar, the teams at Sony and Hello Games won't shut this down. If you're feeling jealous of the people playing the game (and using the app) early, know that their progress isn't permanent. Ahead of the game's retail release on Tuesday, Sony and Hello Games have announced No Man's Sky's pre-release servers will be wiped on Sunday. That means that everyone will start with a clean slate whether they want to or not.
