No Man’s Sky Goes ‘Beyond’ With Latest Content Drop
No Man’s Sky will boldly go… online. In a post on the game’s website by Sean Murray, the Hello Games founder has revealed that the game will receive a brand new No Man’s Sky Online addition in a package dubbed No Man’s Sky: Beyond.
You can watch a teaser trailer for Beyond here:
Described by Murray as No Man’s Sky’s “most ambitious chapter so far”, Beyond is set to arrive in “summer 2019”, and will be made up of three new updates. No Man’s Sky Online is the first of these.
Described as “a radical new social and multiplayer experience,” No Man’s Sky Online will allow players to meet and play together in ways they haven’t yet been able to do. “We don’t consider No Man’s Sky to be an MMO,” Murray continues, “[No Man’s Sky: Beyond] will not require a subscription, won’t contain microtransactions, and will be free to all players”.
“Each chapter for No Man’s Sky has been more successful than the last,” states Murray, with the Beyond update building upon the groundwork laid by NEXT — No Man’s Sky’s most recent huge update. Released in August 2018, NEXT added many fan-requested features and Murray made it clear that these updates are very much driven by the community, whom he took time to thank during this announcement.
No Man’s Sky Beyond will release as a free update in Summer 2019. We’re to expect more updates “in the coming weeks”. You can read Sean Murray’s statement in full here.
