No Mans Sky NEXT Update Launches for Free Next Week

No Mans Sky NEXT Update Launches for Free Next Week

Hello Games' procedurally generated space explorer No Man's Sky is about to get a huge update, adding several much-requested features including unlimited base building, improved visuals and, most importantly, multiplayer. And it's all for free and will launch on July 24. Speaking of bases, the Next update adds hundreds of new components and increases the maximum size of structures.

The game is fully playable in third or first person, both on-foot and in ship.

Base building has undergone some changes for the Next update, and players will now be able to construct multiple bases anywhere on a planet.

Significantly more detail added to ships, NPCs and buildings. The limits to those bases have been expanded, meaning you won't be as restricted as you previously were.

Send your fleet into the universe or deploy them to help you explore.

No Man's Sky's NEXT update is its "largest update so far", so reckoned developer Hello Games earlier this year.

Improved freighter base building allows a truly custom capital ship. Then again, No Man's Sky is exactly as described by the eccentric Sean Murray.

No Man's Sky is an epic science fiction adventure set across an infinite universe, in which every star is the light of a distant sun, orbited by planets filled with life - each yours to visit. Friends can be invited on board and you can embark on multiplayer missions from the Galactic Commission Station that is found on the bridge. Best of all, you can interact with random players during your travels - and even fight them.

Update: Game dev Amy Dentata pointed out that the robot-dogs have always been around if you raise alerts to a certain point. We're eager to see whether or not this next update will bring the game even closer to being a title worth coming back to even if it burned you initially.

No Man's Sky is available now for PC and PlayStation 4. If you fancy taking the next step with them, No Man's Sky's NEXT is due July 24.
