No Man’s Sky Add Multiplayer to Next Big Update

The upcoming update sets out to be the “biggest update so far” according to Hello Games‘ Sean Murray the developer of No Man’s Sky. The multiplayer mode will add the “full multiplayer experience” which will add to this survival, exploration space adventure game.

The team have been testing the multiplayer function for the last six months and sets to give the “a really different feel”.

New No Man’s Sky cover features four space adventurers ready for some co-op action.

When No Man’s Sky was originally released there was the missing element of multiplayer function. Although it’s possible to view other players in the game currently as floating orbs of light and converse through voice chat in “joint exploration”, true co-op ability is not present.

Multiplayer will be coming to Xbox One, PS4 and PC on July 24th in form of a free content update called “NEXT”.

What do you think of the new update? A little too late or just what it needs to give No Man’s Sky a boost? Let us know in the comments below.

    I keep putting off playing this game beyond the first couple hours because they keep adding new content, and I want to play the final version. Eventually I may lose patience around 2025 when they’ve added 8K VR support and virtual smells, and just play the game.

    The Waking Titan ARG has also been ramping up, which is what revealed a lot of features in the Atlas Rises update last year.

    Also, multiplayer is only one feature of the update. There’s going to be many more changes to the game, and we aren’t really sure what those will be yet.
