No Man's Sky Finally Gets Online Multiplayer; Here's How It Works

No Man's Sky may finally get co-op exploration and story overhaul in next update
'No Man's Sky' News: Third Update Titled 'Atlas Rises'

11 August, 2017

Earning a 7/10 in our review upon its initial launch in August 2016, No Man's Sky released without numerous features fans were expecting.

Earlier this week, we heard that No Man's Sky would be getting a big free expansion this week called "Atlas Rises". The patch notes has a statement about joint exploration and this could be many things, but considering how Hello Games has been diligently listening, there is hope that this might imply new worlds to explore as well as new features. According to reports on the possible patch notes of the "No Man's Sky" update, it seems that fans will be receiving what could be the multiplayer aspect that was missing. The official description on the website clears out any confusion that the user might have for the game's multiplayer.

Visualised by unusual floating orbs, up to 16 players can see and communicate with one another, and explore the universe together. "Glitches in the simulation have begun to appear" say Hello Games, these glitches will allow players to see each other as glowing orbs, and will be able to communicate via VoIP when they're in close proximity.

Interestingly, Hello Games had this to add: "While interaction with others is now very limited, this is an important first step into the world of synchronous co-op in No Man's Sky". However, with the addition of quick-travel portals, this might be a little easier. Still, it is nice for the developers to deliver on the promises that they made before the launch of the game, even if took them one whole year to do so. However, recent reports reveal that Hello Games might be trying to rectify that in its upcoming update, which adds a lot of the things that loyal fans have been clamoring for.
