Update 2.0, Beyond, massively expands the multiplayer experience introduced in NEXT, takes immersion to a whole new level with fully-fledged Virtual Reality, overhauls base building, NPCs, technology trees, and much, much more.

Marking the three year anniversary of No Man’s Sky, this is our largest update so far, broadening the experience across the entire game.

Our journey continues...

FEATURES:

Virtual Reality Support
Our most requested feature: you can now play the entirety of No Man’s Sky in Virtual Reality without compromise. Switch seamlessly between VR and standard gameplay. Continue from an existing save to revisit favourite planets, bases and creatures in full Virtual Reality.



Expanded Multiplayer
Multiplayer sessions can now accommodate more explorers. The Space Anomaly can hold 16 players on all platforms. Throughout the rest of the universe, the maximum player count has increased from 4 to 8 players on console, and from 4 to 32 players on PC. Virtual Reality and standard mode players can be seamlessly matchmade into the same multiplayer session.



The Best Time to Start a New Journey
Missions and tutorials have been significantly revised. The early game has been streamlined and focused to better teach players new mechanics, particularly in VR.

New story content has been added to weave together the existing strands of the Atlas Path, the journey of the Space Anomaly, and the story of Artemis.

Substances, crafted products, new technologies and other curiosities are automatically added to the new Catalogue when first encountered. A rework of the Pinning system allows players to get detailed step-by-step instructions on how to find or build any item in their Catalogue.

Guidance features throughout the game have been dramatically improved, including auto-highlighting of relevant crafting requirements and better messaging of context in complex missions.


Ambient Multiplayer
Ambient encounters with other explorers are now represented with full character models, allowing players to see each other’s character and ship customisations. Surviving, building, and exploring together is richer and more immediate than ever.

Use the Voice & Networking interface to group up with any explorers you encounter.

PC players can use an expanded chat interface to control group options and manage communications.




... AND SO MUCH MORE!

No Man's Sky Beyond is another leap forward, but doesn't fix the grind, monotony, or dull combat.

Like everything to do with No Man's Sky, the VR and multiplayer additions aren't without their problems, but this is still a clear step forward for the constantly evolving sci-fi epic.
