No Man's Sky


 

Update: Hello Games’ Sean Murray appeared on Inside Xbox and confirmed that No Man’s Sky will be adding a full synchronous multiplayer experience alongside the Next update. Among the specific multiplayer features Murray teased were the ability for players to collaborate on base-building and race vehicles against each other. A few more details are available on the Xbox Wire.

Murray also announced the Xbox One version of No Man’s Sky, including the the Next update, will arrive July 24th. Other platforms should get the new update for free the same day.

Original story: A reportedly leaked image showing off the Xbox One version of No Man’s Sky‘s box art seems to hint at a deeper multiplayer experience.

The box art, which was posted to Twitter, definitely looks legitimate and was reportedly taken from the content delivery network of the game’s official website, but it has yet to be confirmed by developer Hello Games.

The most obvious difference between the original launch’s box art and the new Xbox One version’s box art is that there are four astronauts on the cover, as opposed to just one. This detail seems to indicate that the Xbox One version will launch with four-player co-op as one of its main features.

This could also mean that No Man’s Sky‘s next big update, titled Next, which launches this summer, will introduce synchronous four-player co-op. Hello Games hasn’t confirmed when the Xbox One version is launching, only to say later this year, but if that box art is to be believed, we’d guess that Xbox One will launch around the same time as Next.

The one thing that’s fishy about this supposed box art is that No Man’s Sky will feature enhancements for the Xbox One X, including HDR support. Usually, that kind of information is presented on the boxes of new Xbox One titles, so it seems odd that Hello Games and publisher 505 Games wouldn’t include that here. Still, this could just be a mock-up of the cover art and not an actual product page image, so we’ll see.

It looks like we’ll find out more about the game very soon, as the next episode of Inside Xbox on May 17th will reveal some new details about the Xbox One version. At the very least, we’re hoping to get a release date.

No Man’s Sky is currently available on PC and PlayStation 4.
