No Man’s Sky: Beyond, which includes the No Man’s Sky VR update, is now rated by the ESRB which implies an imminent release date.
Not long ago No Man’s Sky: Beyond was rated by the Australian ratings board and now the ESRB, spotted by Wario64 on Twitter, the North American game ratings board, has weighed in as well. Unsurprisingly, just like every other version of the game, it’s rated T for Teen.
We still don’t have a specific release date for No Man’s Sky VR announced, but they did say it would be coming this summer. The original game released three years ago on August 9th, but next week seems a bit too soon without an announcement yet. Hopefully it won’t be much longer, though — we loved the brief time we spent hands-on with it on PSVR and HTC Vive Pro.
Sean Murray from Hello Games has spoken very highly of his game’s VR support, stating that he and the rest of the team have wanted to include VR from the very beginning. Unlike Skyrim VR, Fallout 4 VR, Borderland 2 VR, and other non-VR games that get ported, No Man’s Sky VR is actually just an update to the entire base game. No new purchases required if you own it already and the multiplayer functionality works between both VR and non-VR players. That will immediately make it one of the most widely owned VR games once the Beyond update (all of which is also free) finally launches.
No Man’s Sky VR will support PSVR and PC VR headsets. In our discussion topic last week we asked what you intend to do first when finally playing No Man’s Sky VR with its release quickly approaching. Let us know here as well down in the comments below!
