A new major update for No Man’s Sky is on its way for this Summer for all of you out there still playing the game. There are still a million of you out there or so according to Hello Games, so keep playing or updating as there is a new bit coming at you. Just like there last major update, this one has a snazzy name attached to it in the way of No Man’s Sky: Beyond. Okay, maybe it is not too snazzy but it fits the idea they seem to be going with for their updates and such. Just know it is coming and will add to the way we all play the game in a multiplayer aspect.
And…that is about all we know for it. Well, outside of the first thing tease being called No Man’s Sky Online which makes it sound like they are going with an MMO style of game, but they want to make sure we do not see it as an MMO. By default it really is, but it boils down to the fact that there will be no subscriptions, microtransactions, and will be free for existing players. That last part is a bit concerning as it hints that there will be a cost for anyone who wants to dive back into the game after the update. I guess we will see when we actually get more than this tease and name drop.
No Man’s Sky — Beyond Announcement
Last year, the immensely talented team over at Hello Games announced and launched their biggest update yet for No Man’s Sky… NEXT. This major update introduced game-changing features, such as an all-new multiplayer mode, unlimited base building, commanding freighters and much more! NMS also underwent an extensive visual overall, bringing even more life into the universe.
Of course, anyone who is following the NMS story knows this wasn’t all that happened back in 2018. The No Man’s Sky community expanded significantly, thanks to its launch onto Xbox One in July 2018. Since then, Hello Games have been hard at work behind the scenes on even more new content for NMS. The Abyss and Visions updates followed NEXT back in October and November, but the team had a bigger plan up their sleeves for 2019…
