No Man's Sky: BEYOND Update Coming August 14

The wait is almost over! BEYOND, the seventh major FREE update for No Man’s Sky is coming August 14th on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.

BEYOND launches just over a year after the incredibly well received NEXT update, and is actually much bigger in terms of size. This latest update from the immensely talented team over at Hello Games includes all-new Social, Multiplayer and Virtual Reality Experiences.

In case you missed the news earlier this year, or you aren’t aware of BEYOND, let us tell you a little bit more…

No Man’s Sky: BEYOND rolls three major updates into one larger free release. This includes No Man’s Sky Online, an all-new social and multiplayer experience that empowers players everywhere in the universe to meet, play and explore together. No Man’s Sky Online will not require a subscription and won’t contain microtransactions.

As mentioned already today and in our previous NMS blog, BEYOND will be FREE to download for all existing players. BEYOND will also introduce Virtual Reality to supporting platforms for the very first time, bringing the entire game to life in an immersive and enriched VR experience.

What else does BEYOND contain? You’re going to have to wait and see…

Stay tuned for more info!

Inspired by the adventure and imagination found in classic science-fiction, No Man’s Sky presents players with a galaxy to explore, filled with unique planets and lifeforms, constant danger and action. In No Man’s Sky, every star is the light of a distant sun, each orbited by planets filled with life, and explorers can visit any they choose. Players can fly smoothly from deep space to planetary surfaces, with no loading screens, and no limits. In this infinite procedurally generated universe, players discover places and creatures that no others have seen before – and perhaps never will again.

No Man’s Sky is available on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One digitally and at retail, with the Xbox One retail version published by 505 Games.
