505 Games and Hello Games have released a new video for No Man’s Sky that goes over 11 changes that have been made to the game since it launched in 2016.
The trailer below goes over a number of changes, including the improved trading system, the addition of portals for quick traveling, new Survival and Permadeath modes, the ability to build bases, and the option to purchase freighters.
The next major update for the game, titled NEXT, is scheduled to arrive on July 24th. All we know so far is that this update will finally introduce actual multiplayer to the game. Following the update, players will be able to explore the universe with a small group of friends, or bump into random travelers.
“Tiny shelters or complex colonies that you build as a team are shared for all players. Fight as a pirate or a wingman in epic space battles with friends and enemies. Race exocraft across weird alien terrains, creating race tracks and trails to share online,” developer Hello Games said back in May. “That’s always been the potential I think everyone could see in what we were making, it’s been a lot of hard work, but thanks to the team and the community we are so glad to finally able to make it a reality.”
No Man’s Sky is available now on PlayStation 4 and PC, with an Xbox One release coming July 24th.
