No Man’s Sky update will bring cross-platform multiplayer options to the expansive space explorer. This will be launched June 11th alongside the game’s debut to Xbox GamePass for Console and PC.
Last month, Hello Games announced that No Man’s Sky will be coming to the popular subscription service in June. Now, it has also announced that the No Man’s Sky update will bring cross-platform multiplayer support to the title. Thankfully, it finally seems like No Man’s Sky is living up to the incredible hype it had at launch.
“ Over the past six months, we have been quietly reworking the networking back-end of the game to get all versions of the game onto one single multiplayer base. Making No Man’s Sky available to vast new audiences, and allowing those audiences to come together, has been something we’ve been building towards for a long time.”
This essentially means that you should be able to meet up with fellow players in a Nexus no matter what platform they’re playing on.
The No Man’s Sky update will also bring a number of other improvements.
Aside from general fixes and quality of life updates, the update will bring several improvements to multiplayer gameplay and communications. Improved lobbies, improved fireteams, and speech to text should all be coming to the game. For the full patch notes, check them out here.
No Man’s Sky is available on Xbox One, PS4, Steam, GOG, Windows 10, and has optional VR. The team behind the No Man’s Sky update hope that this will be “the first major moment” in an “eventful summer” for the game.
