No Man’s Sky NEXT Update Launching Next Week Alongside the Xbox One Version

Hello Games and 505 Games have announced that No Man’s Sky NEXT will launch as a free update to PlayStation 4 and PC, as well as on Xbox One for the first time.

Sean Murray, founder of Hello Games said:

“Nearly two years ago our small team of friends, with a shared love of sci-fi, opened up the universe of No Man’s Sky for the first time. It was an innovative, weird and at times lonely game. I loved that, it reminded me of the science fiction books I grew up with. It was broad in a way that almost no other game is, but with four updates it has become broader and so much deeper too.

That will be even more true with the launch of NEXT, bringing a full Multiplayer experience. We can’t wait for you to play.”
