The game just keeps getting better.
Hello Games has officially announced No Man's Sky: Beyond, the next chapter in the continuing story of No Man's Sky. This update will feature three major components - the biggest addition being No Man's Sky Online which director Sean Murray describes as "a radical new social and multiplayer experience which empowers players everywhere in the universe to meet and play together”.
Though details are slim right now, Murray promises that they "will talk more about each of the three major components of Beyond when we know we can be precise, and look forward to sharing more in the coming weeks". He goes on to say that "Beyond will be our most ambitious chapter so far, and something we’ve been working ridiculously hard on. We’ll continue to support No Man’s Sky in this way for the foreseeable future".
No release date has been given thus far but we do know that everything included in the update will be absolutely free.
