Hello Games unveiled the NEXT update for No Man’s Sky a few weeks ago, and even though we didn’t get any solid details about it, fans were excited nonetheless. In addition to that, the developers also announced that the game would finally be coming to the Xbox One. Hello Games has just announced the release date for the NEXT update, and it’ll be dropping on July 24, along with the Xbox One release.
More importantly, it was also revealed that the update will include proper multiplayer functionality.
‘We’ve been playtesting multiplayer for the last six months, and the game has evolved into a very new experience that we think the community will enjoy.
For example, you’ll be able to explore the universe with your friends, or bump into random travelers. You can help friends to stay alive, or prey on others to survive. Tiny shelters or complex colonies that you build as a team are shared for all players. Fight as a pirate or a wingman in epic space battles with friends and enemies. Race exocraft across weird alien terrains, creating race tracks and trails to share online.’
The No Man’s Sky NEXT update is set to release on July 24, and the game is now available on PC and PS4.
