After teasing a “small” new announcement for No Man’s Sky very recently, Hello Games have announced a major upcoming update for their survival adventure title. Called No Man’s Sky Beyond, the update is promising to be as big as – if not bigger than – last year’s No Man’s Sky NEXT.

“To some NEXT may have felt like a natural end-point for our journey,” said Hello Games chief Sean Murray, “but for us it was another step on a longer voyage.” Beyond will be a free update for all those who own No Man’s Sky, and will consist of what are being described as three major components. The first of these components will be an expansion of the multiplay elements that were introduced in NEXT last year. Being called “a radical new social and multiplayer experience”, it will require no subscription fees and will include no microtransactions.

“The first component of Beyond we are announcing today is No Man’s Sky Online,” the developer wrote. “No Man’s Sky Online includes a radical new social and multiplayer experience which empowers players everywhere in the universe to meet and play together. Whilst this brings people together like never before, and has many recognisable online elements, we don’t consider No Man’s Sky to be an MMO – it won’t require a subscription, won’t contain microtransactions, and will be free for all existing players.”

The developer hasn’t yet said anything about what the other two components of No Man’s Sky Beyond will entail, but promises more information some time in the future. “We will talk more about each component when we know we can be precise, and look forward to sharing more in the coming weeks.”

Beyond will be our most ambitious chapter so far, and something we’ve been working ridiculously hard on,” Murray wrote. “We’ll continue to support No Man’s Sky in this way for the foreseeable future.”

No Man’s Sky Beyond is coming this Summer.
