Thanks to a recent leak from GDC 2016, we get a nice glimpse of how the game's dialogue system will work. The pic shows a straightforward linear dialogue tree rather than a pesky wheel, with responses written in weird alien letters. Hello Games previously explained that aliens will have all kinds of crazy languages to decipher, and players will begin to understand the strange words the more they interact with certain races.

Aliens will be parts of different factions and groups, all with their languages, cultures, personality traits and technological advancements. So if you want to do business with a militant interstellar alien faction, you'll have to not only learn their language first but most likely earn their favor by doing quests and the like. Pretty neat, huh?

No Man's Sky is slated to release on June 21, 2016 across PlayStation 4 and PC. Pre-orders for the game are now live. We'll be sure to keep you up to speed with all the latest coverage in the coming months.
