No Man's Sky Beyond Adds Sprawling Online Multiplayer Component, Coming This Summer


No Man's Sky Beyond is planned for Summer 2019. No Man's Sky NEXT, the last major update for the the game, brought in full-featured co-op but you wouldn't run into strangers in the same way.

No one has done a turnaround quite like No Man's Sky. Essentially, these changes make it sound like No Man's Sky will become more like an MMO, though Hello Games insists that isn't the case (at least not in a monetization sense).

Hello Games has today announced another new update to intersellar exploration game No Man's Sky. This new multiplayer component will be part of No Man's Sky's fifth major update. It will remain free for all players, won't contain microtransactions, and won't require a subscription (aside from Xbox Live Gold or PS Plus on consoles).

The Beyond update will actually include more than just a multiplayer update - it will include three updates that were initially due to be released separately. Let us know on Facebook and Twitter.

"These changes are an answer to how we have seen people playing since the release of NEXT, and is something we've dreamed of for a long time." added founder Sean Murray.

For more information, head on over to the No Man's Sky website. Players also complained that several of the features that had been highlighted by advertisements were missing from the final game.

Earlier this year, whilst working on our roadmap of three future updates, we decided we wanted to interweave their features, and had a vision for something much more impactful. Murray argued that each subsequent update has brought "enjoyment to millions of new players".
