First details on No Man’s Sky Beyond, the huge new expansion coming to the PS4 sci-fi adventure this summer

Hello Games is rolling three massive updates into one expansion, starting with No Man's Sky Online

Hello everyone. We know that there is a lot of hunger out there for news and updates on No Man’s Sky. We wanted to share some information from behind the scenes. Our next chapter will be called No Man’s Sky Beyond, coming Summer 2019.

Each chapter for No Man’s Sky has been more successful than the last. Thanks to our community, NEXT – our large release last year – was especially so. It went on to bring enjoyment to millions of new players, and it helped to change the legacy of this game we care so much about.

Earlier this year, whilst working on our roadmap of three future updates, we decided we wanted to interweave their features, and had a vision for something much more impactful.

We are excited to announce that Beyond will contain those three major updates rolled into one larger free release.

The first component of Beyond we are announcing today is No Man’s Sky Online.

No Man’s Sky Online includes a radical new social and multiplayer experience which empowers players everywhere in the universe to meet and play together.

Whilst this brings people together like never before, and has many recognisable online elements, we don’t consider No Man’s Sky to be an MMO – it won’t require a subscription, won’t contain microtransactions, and will be free for all existing players.

These changes are an answer to how we have seen people playing since the release of NEXT, and is something we’ve dreamed of for a long time.

We will talk more about each component when we know we can be precise, and look forward to sharing more in the coming weeks.

Beyond will be our most ambitious chapter so far, and something we’ve been working ridiculously hard on. We’ll continue to support No Man’s Sky in this way for the foreseeable future.

It’s unexpected but so rewarding to see so many accolades and nominations for No Man’s Sky as Best On-going or Most Evolved this year. To some NEXT may have felt like a natural end-point for our journey, but for us it was another step on a longer voyage.

A ver para cuando VR, es lo que le falta al juego, iba a ser épico con las psvr


Estaría bastante bien con VR, puede que lo tengan en cuenta para la próxima actualización. A ver si le mando de nuevo al juego y le cojo el tranquillo, o eso, o me estoy haciendo viejo ?


Ive had fun with No Man´s Sky since release, even with the bs they pulled. But with each update, it gets even more fun. Looking forward to diving into it again this summer :)

Fair play to them, Personally speaking i would jump back in if it ever got VR support. This game would be mesmerising in VR. One can dream.

I expect this game in psVR, It can be brutal

Good stuff. :)

How refreshing that we are six comments in, and no boring little nobody has announced how much they hate NMS and how Hello Games ripped everyone off. The most boring, pointless posts on the Internet. Well done everyone. I can’t wait to jump back in.


I think you spoke too soon judging by the comment below…


Well, I was going to write that the americans have not yet woken up, but I guess one did :)

Wow more than 2 years and this broken game is still not fixed. At least they’re not selling that unfinished crap with a AAA price tag anymore. But why would they, they’ve already paid back that Sony loan they used for false advertising, and are currently sitting on the 30M £ profit they cheesed out of gamers. Funny how Murray already created another company called Hello Dev which has exactly 1£ in the bank.


What are you talking about?

What’s not fixed? It’s pretty much above and beyond what they set out to do now.


dont feed the trolls

Yeah it had a shabby start but he more than made up for it, could it have done with releasing a year later, yes, but for all we know it was sony pushing them to release before it was fully ready, if you really wanna hate keep it to the big boys like ea

Absolutely incredible support for a beautiful game.


If it was fully VR then i’d have real reason to jump in again.


I might buy this game now for PC. Is it a completely different game now? Because when it was released it was a mess and had zero content.


Well it can’t be 60 quid anymore that is for sure.

Grinding simulator with wierd giraffe-mammoth-duck hybrid like animals. maaden_swe approved. true story.


It didnt have zero content, I had alot of fun with it and found alot of stuff to do, lots of secrets in this game. Gotta get better at gaming, dont blame the developer for your lack of skill

I love space games with lots of cosmetic and stats strengthening customization :)


No Man’s Sky turned out great already a year ago, and they have done a wonderful job on it.

NMS is nothing like release version at all. It’s like a new game today.

Still a prime example of a game that were released 2 years too early, but that’s the publishers fault.

I’d pay for VR content.

We close the comments for posts after 30 days.
