This past week, Hello Games finally announced when they would release No Man’s Sky: Beyond, and the date is a lot closer than you think. The VR version of the game will officially be released on August 14th. Along with the announcement they made players aware of the changes to come, specifically around the VR aspect of the game. You can read more about the changes below, along with the trailer.
Beyond will contain three major updates rolled into one larger free release. These changes are a mix of features we’ve been dreaming of for a while, and a reaction to how we have seen folks playing since the release of NEXT.
An expanded Online experience will bring a radical new social and multiplayer experience which empowers players everywhere in the universe to meet and play together.
Meanwhile VR support will bring the entire game experience to life in virtual reality. Grab the joystick and thruster to fly your starship over an unexplored alien planet as you peer out of the cockpit at the view below. Reach into your backpack to grab your multitool, touch it to switch to terrain manipulation, and carve out intricate shapes with unprecedented control. Play in multiplayer and casually wave to your non-VR friends or fist bump your VR peers. Anything possible in No Man’s Sky, NEXT or any other update will soon be ready and waiting as an immersive and enriched VR experience.
