Taking one for the Team: co-operative not-Zombie style (#5)


By Blackwalt - Posted on 11 August 2018

I think we all knew this was coming...

First mentioned on Herd of Cats back in July 2016 by Aku, No Man's Sky has always been a game that interested me.

The Xbox One version with the NEXT patch is providing a improved experience to Xbox players vs the original PS4 release two years ago. Particularly the inclusion of multiplayer. Yes, No Man's Sky is now four player coop. Magic words for HoC.

Technically, I have yet to click on the Buy button but it is only a matter of time.

From the official Website:

On July 24th No Man’s Sky NEXT will launch as a free update for PlayStation, PC, as well as launching on Xbox for the first time. We are focused on development, but we know people are hungry for details.

Nearly two years ago our small team of friends, with a shared love of sci-fi, opened up the universe of No Man’s Sky for the first time. It was an innovative, weird and at times lonely game. I loved that, it reminded me of the science fiction books I grew up with. It was broad in a way that almost no other game is, but with four updates it has become broader and so much deeper too.That will be even more true with the launch of NEXT, bringing a full Multiplayer experience. We can’t wait for you to play, but hopefully you can see from the trailer this is a very new experience.

Here are a few things you might notice from the trailer…

Multiplayer

  • Team up a small team of friends and explore the universe together, or be joined by random travelers.
  • You can help friends to stay alive, or prey on others to survive.
  • Tiny shelters or complex colonies that you build as a team are shared for all players.
  • Fight as a pirate or a wing man in epic space battles with friends and enemies.
  • Race exocraft across weird alien terrains, creating race tracks and trails to share online.
  • Character customization allows you to personalize your appearance.

Visual Overhaul

  • The game is fully playable in third or first person, both on-foot and in ship.
  • Planetary rings and improved space visuals make space more beautiful than ever.
  • Dramatically improved planetary terrain generation, ground textures, water and clouds bring the environment to life.
  • Significantly more detail added to ships, NPCs and buildings.

Unlimited Base Building

  • Bases can now be built anywhere on any planet.
  • Dramatically increased base building complexity and size limits.
  • Hundreds of new base parts.
  • Own multiple bases.

Command Freighters

  • Assemble and upgrade a fleet of frigates and command them from the bridge of your freighter.
  • Send your fleet out to into the universe, or deploy them to help you as you explore a specific system.
  • Improved freighter base building allows a truly custom capital ship.
  • Invite your friends aboard and take on challenging multiplayer missions from the Galactic Commission Station on your bridge.
