It looks like Multiplayer Might Finally Come to No Man's Sky

No Man's Sky may finally get co-op exploration and story overhaul in next update

"No Man's Sky" was largely anticipated in August a year ago, but as the game did not live up to the hype for many players, Hello Games received a lot of criticism, some even involved death threats as well as attempts to hack the website. With a heavy emphasis on new context, quest system, and branching narrative to discovering the truth of No Man's Sky, there is almost 30 hours of new story content.

Now may be a good time to pop No Man's Sky back into your console, if you didn't already trade the game in.

"Joint exploration" as it's being called, will allow up to 16 other players to enter a game, however they won't be as visible as you'd expect, rather they'll be floating orbs in amongst the universe. 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 and VOIP (Voice over IP) allows proximity based voice chat with other nearby explorers. If you're feeling a little lonely and wonder where everyone is, you can use the now active portals to fast travel to more populated planets.

Atlas Rises also promises to improve mapping and waypointing, as well as an overhaul to the game's trading system.

You can read the full patch notes on the No Man's Sky website.

New NPC guilds will also be introduced. And if you wanted to be an interstellar tycoon, now star systems have their economic strengths and weaknesses. The campaign focuses on the introduction of a new interdimensional race, although no more details on this have been revealed.

Interact with a portal and input a specific combination of glyphs to quick travel to a specific planet.

There are a number of improvements being made to the game visually, contextually, economically and creatively.

A new HUD has been introduced to improve the experience of space combat. Full details can be found over here.

Your snazzy visor that you use to scan and tag the various flora, fauna and aliens in No Man's Sky has had quite the upgrade. If not, what could Hello Games do to make you pick it up again?
