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.

Our Verdict

Harold Teekman
I love video games. That's why I write about them. My first console was the Nintendo 64 and we got it when I was 4, along with Super Mario 64. I finished the game on my own when I was 6. One of my all time favorites of that generation is Donkey Kong 64. I love the bosses, I love the level designs, I love how you can play with multiple characters, and I love how many collectibles there are. I was mostly a Nintendo gamer until 2010, when I discovered Assassin's Creed. My PC could barely run it, but it played good enough to provide an amazing experience. Since then I've had a lot of catching up to do, and I'm now a big fan of Mass Effect, Dead Space, Resident Evil and the Batman: Arkham games, among others.
