No Man’s Sky Beyond
Beyond is the next major update for No Man’s Sky, planned for release sometimes this Summer.
After a silence of some months, Hello Games have announced recently that they had been working on three new updates for No Man’s Sky.
Instead of delivering three separate patches throughout the year they have decided to merge all of them into one huge update, Beyond.
Beyond will consist of three different components :
- No Man’s Sky Online
- No Man’s Sky Virtual Reality ( VR )
No Man’s Sky Online
The first component will turn No Man’s Sky into a true multiplayer, online experience. Players will be able to meet and play together easier and in a better way than now.
No Man’s Sky Online will not require a subscription, will not include microtransactions and will be free for all existing players. Like with everything else Beyond will bring to the game.
No Man’s Sky VR ( Virtual Reality )
The entire game will be brought to life with VR. Beyond will turn the game into a living, breathing experience and allow us to enjoy space exploration in a new, exciting way.
From the few screens Hello Games have shared, we can see that they are working on turning the entire game into a VR experience instead of just offering a separate mode.
No Man’s Sky VR will come to Steam and Playstation with an exclusive retail release on PS4.
The third and final component of Beyond has not be announced yet. Hello Games will reveal it at a later date and will probably have to do with the addition of new gameplay.
The actual release date for Beyond is still unknown. All we know is that this new chapter for No Man’s Sky is scheduled for release some time this Summer.
