No Man’s Sky has had quite the impressive turnaround over the years. While the game initially disappointed at launch, the team at Hello Games put their heads down and got to work on various improvements, leading to several huge free updates. At this point, No Man’s Sky has better crafting/building, proper multiplayer and the next big update is just around the corner, with No Man’s Sky Beyond set to launch in two weeks.
No Man’s Sky Beyond will contain three major updates rolled into one and will be the first major update since No Man’s Sky NEXT, which brought in over 100,000 concurrent players at launch. A launch trailer for the Beyond update released this afternoon, teasing what’s to come:
The new gameplay trailer gives us a much better look at the Beyond update compared to the previous teaser. Not only will this update add VR support to the game, but it looks like multiplayer is going to be expanded on and will be more social than before. It also looks like explorable biomes, space stations and building may also have had a few upgrades based on the gameplay footage.
There will likely be a more complete breakdown of all the new features when Beyond launches, until then, it looks like Hello Games might want to keep a few surprises up its sleeve. No Man’s Sky: Beyond officially launches next week on the 14th of August. The update is free to everyone who owns the game.
KitGuru Says: No Man’s Sky Beyond might convince me to jump back in, especially with VR support and multiplayer all working. Have many of you returned to No Man’s Sky since it first came out? Are you planning to jump back in next week when the Beyond update launches?
