No Man's Sky Beyond Teases Expanded Online Mode

No Man's Sky Beyond Teases Expanded Online Mode

What Hello Games was willing to share was that Beyond will be three major updates rolled into one mega-release (and, as always, it will be free for everyone who owns No Man's Sky). The newly revised online component will allow players to meet up and play together more easily, but the studio cautions that it doesn't consider this a shift to an MMO. Essentially, these changes make it sound like No Man's Sky will become more like an MMO, though Hello Games insists that isn't the case (at least not in a monetization sense).

While this community is vibrant, I can only imagine how much more thriving it could be if No Man's Sky fills out its roster of features with ones that encourage more social gameplay. No Man's Sky: Beyond, they call it. As such, there'll be no microtransactions or subscriptions, and updates will continue to be free for all pre-existing players.

Each chapter for No Man's Sky has been more successful than the last. We now know very little about this update.

"These changes are an answer to how we have seen people playing since the release of NEXT, and is something we've dreamed of for a long time." added founder Sean Murray. Players also complained that several of the features that had been highlighted by advertisements were missing from the final game.

The action-adventure survival game was one of the most anticipated titles in recent memory when it dropped in August 2016 but it was quickly apparent that indie developer Hello Games overpromised and under delivered in a major way.

No Man's Sky hasn't always had a great relationship with multiplayer.
