The next big and free update for No Man’s Sky launches in little under two weeks time. And it plans on improving the multiplayer capabilities of Hello Games’ title. But there are a couple of other changes included in the Beyond patch that are determined to breath new life into the game – none less so than PSVR capability.
This virtual reality offering will be universe wide, and will not be limited by boundaries. So you can don your spacesuit and goggles safe in the knowledge that NASA won’t bring you back down to Earth. Or, as I like to call it, non virtual reality.
With regards to the multiplayer functionality, the studio are also determined to bring the community together in a way that hasn’t been seen before. They’re not really elaborating on that, but have told Polygon the following in past:
“It includes a radical new social and multiplayer experience which empowers players everywhere in the universe to meet and play together.
“Whilst this brings people together like never before, and has many recognizable online elements, we don’t consider No Man’s Sky to be an MMO. It won’t require a subscription, won’t contain micro-transactions, and will be free for all existing players.”
Finally, there is a third portion to this update. But we’re not privy to that yet; although, neither are the remainder of the news sector. So you’ll just have to keep an eye on our news feed in the interim. You won’t have long to wait, mind you. The Beyond update goes live on August 14th.
Do you still have time for No Man’s Sky? Or is it Beyond you?
