    No Man's Sky has already announced that it has an upcoming major content in the pipeline--one called NEXT. However, today, we got some new details about what we'll be getting with this new update. The most significant of which is that of the new online multiplayer feature. You can now play simultaneously with other players, building and adventuring throughout the world. Racing and dogfighting in aerial vehicles was also mentioned. This update is set to go live for all versions of the game on July 24. This reveal was made during this month's Xbox Insider video.

    Back with kitty Zelda forever :D
    I don't play it, but I've tryed it once
    Didn't really like it
    plus, iirc, this game trailer were a bit misleading
    Apparently, lot of people though it was going to be a MMORPG
    so if it gets multiplayer, then I have only one thing to say

    how is the state of the game currently? close to what it was advertised in the beggining or is now a different game?
    i know in the beggining it was totally shit, and the developers mislead and lied about plenty of features and stuff the game was supposed to have..
    i am wondering if the developers slowly added what they promissed or basically rebuilt the game and went other path

    I got my ass torn by people who bought this game at launch, my only comment was: ''This game is going to be shit''
    And welp, guess I was right.

    No Man's Sky? More like Nope Man's sky.

    I've had it since day one.
    It's made a lot of good strides towards what was presented in the initial trailers, though it can still be pretty empty and grindy.

    My advice is and likely will remain that you should only pick up No Man's Sky if you're looking for a game you can relax with while exploring. Action is pretty spread out, and not the focus of the game.

    Here's a small list of changes since 1.0:

    At least it's still getting worked on and reaching what it should've been in the first place.

    If anything, I'll give the devs credit for staying committed to the game and slowly updating it toward a point where the game lives up to the promises they had been giving prior to release. Plenty to give them shit for, but it is pretty nice to see something as important as the promised multiplayer finally getting implemented.

    Too bad they lost my trust when they released an unready, unstable, glitchy game that wasnt worth my time or my $60 :/ Threw this game in the dump a long time ago. Too little to late sadly.

    Try to grab it while it's on sale if you end up wanting to get it.


    Several communities based around the game and myself included would disagree.
    Just because a large majority of people dislike the game for its poor release does not mean no one likes it. There are niche games out there for everyone, and No Man's Sky happens to be one of them.
