PC No Man’s Sky Players Can Remap Controls And Change Field-Of-View

No Man’s Sky is launching today on PC after a brief bump at the last minute. When it arrives at 1 p.m. Eastern / 10 a.m. Pacific today, it will bring a host of customization options not found on PlayStation 4.

Two of the main complaints will be addressed right off the bat. First, the field-of-view is now customizable. If you’ve felt a bit tiny on No Man’s Sky’s large planets, expanding the FOV should help.

Additionally, if you decide to play with a controller, you’ll be able to swap L3 and R3. That means you can move sprint off the right thumbstick and back on the left where it belongs.

You’ll also be able to drop the HUD out entirely. This should make for some stunning pictures like one provided by Nvidia above.

Our Take
Hopefully some of these things make their way to the PS4 version. The FOV adjustments and user-defined button mapping would be greatly appreciated.
