Hello Games, has today announced the Xbox One and updated PS4/PC version of No Man’s Sky will release on Tuesday July 24th (27th in Europe). The revised game will also introduce multiplayer for the first time. As part of No Man’s Sky NEXT this will be a free update launching simultaneously for existing players on PC and PS4.
“Multiplayer completely changes the No Man’s Sky experience, it’s emergent, fun and intense in ways we always wanted it to be. I’m so happy this is finally happening” said Sean Murray, founder, Hello Games. “It is genuinely exciting to be able to fully realise the potential so many people could see in No Man’s Sky. This will be our biggest update yet and we’re pumped to be bringing Xbox players along on the journey with us now too.”
