    "On July 24th No Man’s Sky NEXT will launch as a free update for PlayStation, PC, as well as launching on Xbox for the first time. We are focused on development, but we know people are hungry for details.

    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, but hopefully you can see from the trailer this is a very new experience.

    Here are a few things you might notice from the trailer…

    Multiplayer
    • Team up a small team of friends and explore the universe together, or be joined by random travelers.
    • You can help friends to stay alive, or prey on others to survive.
    • Tiny shelters or complex colonies that you build as a team are shared for all players.
    • Fight as a pirate or a wingman in epic space battles with friends and enemies.
    • Race exocraft across weird alien terrains, creating race tracks and trails to share online.
    • Character customisation allows you to personalise your appearance.

    Visual Overhaul

    • The game is fully playable in third or first person, both on-foot and in ship.
    • Planetary rings and improved space visuals make space more beautiful than ever.
    • Dramatically improved planetary terrain generation, ground textures, water and clouds bring the environment to life.
    • Significantly more detail added to ships, NPCs and buildings.

    Unlimited Base Building

    • Bases can now be built anywhere on any planet.
    • Dramatically increased base building complexity and size limits.
    • Hundreds of new base parts.
    • Own multiple bases.

    Command Freighters

    • Assemble and upgrade a fleet of frigates and command them from the bridge of your freighter.
    • Send your fleet out to into the universe, or deploy them to help you as you explore a specific system.
    • Improved freighter base building allows a truly custom capital ship.
    • Invite your friends aboard and take on challenging multiplayer missions from the Galactic Commision Station on your bridge.
    This is an incredibly important update for us, but it’s also just another step in a longer journey, and we’ll continue to support No Man’s Sky in this way for the foreseeable future.

    On behalf of myself, and the team at Hello Games I just want to say – Thank you. We are so excited to have made NEXT, and to continue to improve and develop No Man’s Sky, because of you, the community who play, explore and share this universe with us. It means so much to us.

    We hope you enjoy this and what follows – and we look forward to meeting you out there! Our journey continues.

    Sean"

    I think I'd be up for trying to make some sort of base and farming to increase income and would be interested in trying some multiplayer missions and shenanigans if anyone else here is interested. Say hi on Steam if you are.

    I don't trust any words from the dev team of this game. They lied before, they might do it again.

    The launch sure was a tragedy, but they really improved the game with previous updates, so this one could be really what the game was supposed to be from the start.

    Might actually get a copy on sale, kinda regret not buying it during summer Steam sales.

    Yes to all of the hype launch dramas but more than any game I know, they have added tons in the years since, all for free. Not even a hint of a DLC or microtransaction. The game now is far more different to the original than say comparing what's new in The Crew 2.

    I had a go last night trying some of the base building and associated missions (which came in the first free update) and got sucked in. Apparently the next update tomorrow also makes it much easier for new players to progress to things like base building and purchasing a huge freighter ship. I think that will be my end goal, along with seeing how the main story (or stories?) turn out as I've heard good feedback on that.

    So yes let me know if you want to team up, robik.
