No Man's Sky Beyond Adds Sprawling Online Multiplayer Component, Coming This Summer
Hello Games has announced a new free update for No Man's Sky, due for release this summer. Players who have been enthusiastically playing No Man's Sky have been working around things that are missing in the game, creating their own communities on Reddit and Discord.
The first of these updates is called No Man's SkyOnline, and though specific gameplay details remain light for now, Murray says that it "includes a radical new social and multiplayer experience which empowers players everywhere in the universe to meet and play together". Hello will reveal more about the update, including its two other components, in the coming weeks. Want to discuss a possible story? No Man's Sky already has support for multiplayer, which was further expanded in NEXT, but it seems that No Man's SkyOnline is going to take multiplayer to a new level. But, it stresses that it doesn't consider "No Man's Sky" an MMO. "However, it will not require a subscription, will not contain micro-transactions and will be completely free for all existing players".
At one time, Hello Games planned to release three, future updates as part of the Beyond expansion.
The action-adventure survival game was one of the most anticipated titles in recent memory when it dropped in August 2016 but it was quickly apparent that indie developer Hello Games overpromised and under delivered in a major way.
In No Man's Sky, every star is the light of a distant sun, each orbited by planets filled with life, and you can go to any of them you choose.
In the press release, Murray said that each update to No Man's Sky has been more successful than the last, Next especially so.
