How to Start Missions With Friends in No Man’s Sky NEXT
Not only is No Man’s Sky finally making its way to Xbox One this week, but Hello Games’ title is receiving a huge new, free DLC pack. Called NEXT, it will hopefully bring No Man’s Sky to the state many expected it to be when it initially launched. While the ability to build bases anywhere and a third-person mode are exciting, it is the addition of full multiplayer that’ll inevitably see people flooding back. You can explore all the planets together, splitting up to search new areas and sharing items will each other. You can also start missions together, seeing you head out to a particular planet to complete objectives. Since you’ll probably want to experience it when you jump back in, here’s everything you need to know to start missions with friends in the NEXT update in No Man’s Sky.
The first thing you need to do to start missions with friends is, obviously, meet up with your friend(s). Invite them by going to the Options menu and selecting Network and Voice, then select ‘Invite Friends.’ Once they’ve joined, you can head out on missions together. You cannot activate the missions for your whole party, but your friends can head out with you to lend a helping hand. Simply place a waypoint at a certain location, and follow the leader. You can then organize with your fellow adventurers exactly what needs doing, so that you can make each of the missions a little more simple for everyone.
It’s not clear yet whether everyone reaps rewards from the missions, but the help is always great. You can, however, invite your friends aboard your Freighter and take on multiplayer missions that are given to you by the Galactic Commission Station on your bridge.
