Hello Games has just announced the release date for its release the seventh free update for No Man’s Sky, BEYOND. This free expansion will release on August 14th and 505 Games has released a new trailer for it that you can find below.
No Man’s Sky: BEYOND rolls three major updates into one larger free release. This includes No Man’s Sky Online, a radical new social and multiplayer experience that empowers players everywhere in the universe to meet and play together. The BEYOND launch also delivers No Man’s Sky Virtual Reality to supporting platforms. Thanks to this mode, players can enjoy the entire game in VR.
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.
The BEYOND update is the seventh major free update since the game’s launch in 2016. BEYOND is comparable in size to the hugely popular NEXT update released last year.
It’s pretty amazing witnessing the evolution of this title. No Man’s Sky came out in a pretty awful state, however, Hello Games was able to turn the tides. Contrary to other studios, Hello Games took every complaint and addressed them via its free post-launch expansions. The end result is a product that plays way better than its initial versions.
