Here’s when we’re finally getting multiplayer in No Man’s Sky

Hello Games has announced that a huge update is coming to No Man’s Sky which plans to add multiplayer and a bunch of other new features.

Speaking on Twitter, Hello Games’ Sean Murray confirmed the procedural space exploration title is coming to Xbox One on July 24.

This is the same date players across PS4, Xbox and PC will receive the long-awaited multiplayer patch, previously described as the “biggest update ever” for No Man’s Sky. 

In terms of specific multiplayer features, you can look forward to co-operative exploration, shared bases, dogfights and race vehicles.

How the multiplayer feature will be accessed in No Man’s Sky remains unknown. It will be free for all new and existing players, and may even occupy a mode by itself.

We took another galactic dive into No Man’s Sky upon the release of its ‘Foundation’ update in Foundation Update in April 2017.

It has since been updated again with ‘Atlas Rises‘ that adds a relatively robust narrative campaign and quality-of-life improvements to a bunch of its systems.

No Man’s Sky may have underwhelmed upon its original launch, but it’s clear Hello Games is passionate about creating an experience true to its original vision.
