No Man’s Sky Headed to Xbox One, Next Big Update Arrives this Summer
Today, Hello Games, an indie team based in the United Kingdom, announced that No Man’s Sky Next is deep in development as another free update for existing players on PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, PC as well as launching on Xbox One.
Check out the screenshots of the upcoming No Man’s Sky update:
“In August 2016, a small indie development team Hello Games, released the hugely ambitious and highly-anticipated No Man’s Sky on PS4 and PC. Millions of gamers worldwide have spent hundreds of millions of hours voyaging across its vast, procedurally-generated sandbox universe – exploring, trading and fighting in a living breathing universe.
In the last 18 months, Hello Games and No Man’s Sky’s community of avid followers have continued to build out the game through 3 major updates (Foundation, Pathfinder, Atlas Rises) and dozens of smaller patches.
The game’s most recent update, Atlas Rises, was released last summer, adding 30 hours of story as well as more planetary variety. Prior to that, Hello Games released two major updates, following the game’s launch in August 2016.
“We are calling this No Man’s Sky Next because it is an important next step in a journey for No Man’s Sky, for Hello Games and for our devoted community.” said Sean Murray, founder at Hello Games. “Each update for No Man’s Sky has been more successful than the last; this was especially true of our last update Atlas Rises. It emboldens the team to push ourselves further. This journey is far from over, and it’s exciting to be working again on something you know will surprise people.”
“We’ve learned a lot over the last few years, faster than we would have liked,” added Murray. “I’d love to avoid talking completely and just make things people can play, but we knew this was going to leak anyway, and I think it’s news that should make a lot of folks happy.”
Xbox One owners will be able to explore this vast procedurally generated universe later in 2018, including all content developed to date and a lot more surprises from Next yet to be announced. 505 Games will distribute the physical Xbox One version worldwide.”
