No Man’s Sky has gone gold, and since the game is now ready to be printed on disk, Creative Director Sean Murray was able to reveal how much of that disk will be occupied by data.

On top of that, we also learn that the game passed certification in Europe, United States and Asia on the first try, while the team is working on the submission for Japan.

Murray then shared that the team is already working on the first update:

Just for kicks, we also got a screenshot of the Chinese version of the game.
