Sandbox spacetourism survival sim No Man’s Sky will develop once more with one other honking nice free replace this summer season, builders Hello Games introduced as we speak. No Man’s Sky: Beyond, they name it. While particulars are nonetheless shrouded within the mists of selling schedules, Hello do say they plan to develop the multiplayer with “a radical new social and multiplayer experience.” The teaser trailer saying all this exhibits the alternative, one single spaceman standing by one single spaceship, so what it truly entails is anybody’s guess. It is a pleasant spaceship, thoughts.
“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 mentioned in today’s announcement. “Whilst this brings people together like never before, and has many recognisable online elements, we don’t consider No Man’s Sky to be an MMO – it won’t require a subscription, won’t contain microtransactions, and will be free for all existing players.”
I imply, you don’t want subscriptions and microtransactions to be an MMO so I do not know what Hello outline an MMO as or what which means for NMS Online? I’ve requested ’em however don’t count on to get a agency reply as a result of we’re nonetheless in that obscure teaser part.
I perceive they’ve discovered to be obscure about their plans to keep away from constructing expectations an excessive amount of and disappointing of us once more, however the vagueness is a bit foolish in the event you’re bigging up a “radical” new factor.
The NMS: Beyond replace will roll Online along with two different lumps that Hello had initially deliberate to launch as separate updates earlier than deciding to roll the lot collectively. No, they don’t say what these components are both. The level is: SPACESHIPS!
Disclosure: Our Alec wrote a bit for No Man’s Sky again earlier than launch.
