Hello Games has introduced a brand new free replace for No Man’s Sky, due for launch this summer time. Beyond will launch as a three-part replace starting within the coming months with No Man’s Sky Online.
According to an announcement made earlier at present, No Man’s Sky Online “includes a radical new social and multiplayer experience which empowers players everywhere in the universe to meet and play together. Hello Games founder Sean Murray notes that that might sound familiar, but that “we don’t consider No Man’s Sky to be an MMO.” As such, there’ll be no microtransactions or subscriptions, and updates will proceed to be free for all pre-existing gamers.
At the second, that’s kind of all we learn about Online, however Hello says that the adjustments are in response to the game’s Next replace, which launched final 12 months. It’s additionally price noting that Online is simply step one on an extended journey for Beyond, which Murray describes as “our most ambitious chapter so far.” We’ll probably hear extra about the remainder of the replace within the coming weeks.
After a rocky launch again in 2016, Hello Games appears to have been going from power to power. No Man’s Sky Next was its first main replace, but it surely’s since been adopted up by two additional expansions, Abyss and Visions, each of which appear to have been nicely acquired by the group.
