No Man's Sky Next brings the game closer to its original vision

Hello Games' No Man's Sky is gearing up for the launch of its biggest update to date next week, arriving day-and-date with the Xbox One version of the sprawling space explore-'em-up.

Following the update, players will be able to join up with friends or bump into others players who are exploring the massive procedurally generated universe themselves, giving both parties the chance to team up or battle it out. Not that we'd recommend doing that of course, as you should totally use the time to aid others instead.

The No Man's Sky multiplayer update has been in the works for quite a while now, with early testing of the feature seen in Atlas Rises update a year ago.

Here's the lowdown on what you are getting on July 24th on PS4, Xbox One owners can pick up the game on August 9th. You can assume different roles (such as pirate or wingman) and even build bases with buddies. NEXT also brings a visual overhaul to the game, allowing for third or first person, more detailed environments, and wider variety - including ringed planets.

Race exocraft across weird alien terrains, creating race tracks and trails to share online. "The character customisation allows you to personalise your appearance". Additionally, there's "also significantly more detail added to ships, NPCs and buildings". You can also own multiple bases.

The developer explains curious adventurers can now assemble and upgrade fleets of frigates, which can be commanded from the bridge of their freighter. You can then send them out into the universe or have them assist you as you explore systems.

Invite your friends aboard and take on challenging multiplayer missions from the Galactic Commission Station on your bridge.

Will you be jumping back into No Man's Sky for the NEXT content? It's due next week-Tuesday, July 24-and has a new trailer.

In our review of the game, we gave it a 9/10, saying, "So No Man's Sky isn't flawless".
