As you probably know, a little game called No Man’s Sky is getting a VR update next week. Here’s a trailer for it (sort of).
The launch trailer for No Man’s Sky Beyond just went live. It teases some of the features for the free update. That includes expanded multiplayer support, allowing you to team up with friends, meet up in space and venture off into the universe together. Oh and, yes, that does indeed appear to be a group of players riding creatures.
Now, the trailer’s all in third-person but don’t worry; all of this will be VR compatible too. As developer Hello Games has confirmed, the entirety of the game is being translated into VR. Every planet, creature, building and more can be explored with a headset on.
Over on the PlayStation Blog the team’s Sean Murray revealed details about the Nexus, which will be a hub for the game’s online content. He explained that “we call the Nexus, a shared social space that brings people together and lets them play with friends or join with random strangers like never before.”
He confirmed the Nexus will be a space to show off your progress, be it the new ship you’ve just scored or the spacesuit you’ve been kitting out. “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,” Murray added.
No Man’s Sky Beyond hits on August 14 with PSVR and PC VR support. Yes, we’re still excited for it. Keep your eyes peeled over the next few days; we may have a little more info coming. For now, check out our article on everything we know about the game thus far.
