In response to the immense amount of refunds of the new game No Man’s Sky on Steam, the page for the game has been updated with a notice that may make it more difficult for people who bought the game to refund it.
This notice is, as far as we know, unique to No Man’s Sky, and hasn’t been seen before, which suggests that all the refunds have made quite an impact on Valve. The notice reads:
“The standard Steam refund policy applies to No Man’s Sky. There are no special exemptions available. Click
here for more detail on the Steam refund policy.”
The notice appeared on Sunday and is probably in response to players abusing Steam’s support ticket system. People exceeding the standard two hour playtime for a refund have been able to get a refund through this support system, something which Valve is now taking a stance against. Things like technical issues, missing features, and misleading advertising have been noted by disappointed players as reasons to get their money back. This doesn’t mean you won’t be able to get a refund
ever; it just means that Steam will make it harder to get a refund if you go beyond the two hours of playtime, or the fourteen days owned model they currently use.
A picture of the notice can be seen below.
