“Next” Update of “No Man’s Sky” – the power unleashed
This game is a unique phenomenon! It was anticipated by the gaming community, but the release of an underdeveloped version in 2016 caused lots of disappointment… Now, the situation has changed, and all owners of “No Man’s Sky” have got a strong reason to enter the infinite procedural world once again – give the game a chance! Moreover, all other gamers have got a strong reason to buy “No Man’s Sky” and to try this open world action-adventure at its full potential.
On July 24, the developers from Hello Games presented a very significant update of “No Man’s Sky,” called just “Next.” Its main feature is multiplayer!
Another achievement for the game is the release of the Xbox One version. Previously, the game was available only on PS4 and PC.
So, what’s Next?
The world of “No Man’s Sky” is vast and unpredictable. So many planets to explore; such huge distances to travel around! Still, emptiness surrounded players in this game for a very long time: it was a lack of gameplay elements and, mostly, a lack of living people in the virtual world.
Previous updates of “No Man’s Sky” fixed the situation with the gameplay – many objects and features were added with the “Path Finder” and “Atlas Rises” updates . Still, the possibility to play with others was missed immensely. The Next update fixes this, and it’s the best thing that’s happened to “No Man’s Sky” to date!
From now on, players can create teams to explore the virtuality, collect and share resources, and compete with other teams. Lots of other fun things are possible with multiplayer, and “Next” makes them possible. That’s why the update is so important! It’s like a second birth for the game.
Along with this update, Hello Games has released the Xbox version of the game. This increases the game fan base significantly. Recently, the developers of “NieR: Automata” took the same step.
It’s good to see this game developing properly, even if it has happened after rather a long delay. And it’s nice to see such great titles available for different platforms. It would be even better if tradable in-game items were added to the game – to buy and sell on DMarket, of course, like with CS:GO skins.
