No Man's Sky Gets Its Biggest Update yet with Inclusion of Multiplayer

No Man's Sky may finally get co-op exploration and story overhaul in next update

That's why it's so encouraging that the game's third major update, titled "Atlas Rising", is adding tons of new content to the base game.

No one saw this sudden move incoming from Hello Games, even though Sean Murray told us in advance that the new content update for No Man's Sky will go live anytime this week.

"Joint exploration" as it's being called, will allow up to 16 other players to enter a game, however they won't be as visible as you'd expect, rather they'll be floating orbs in amongst the universe. Many people were disappointed about the game's lack of multiplayer features, which had been promised by developer Hello Games early in development. And to explain more of what's going on, 30 hours of story have been added.

Hello Games just dropped the latest patch for No Man's Sky and it's a huge one. Couple this with graphics that don't look anywhere near as polished when presented prior to release and No Man's Sky was a game that underwhelmed audiences and critics.

"While interaction is very limited, VOIP (Voice over IP) allows proximity based voice chat with other nearby explorers". Yes, Hello Games has finally activated the massive black monoliths that can be found throughout No Man's Sky. There is a new race of aliens introduced along with the story as well although just how much interaction players will have with the new creatures was not revealed. The game now supports as many as 16 players in this setup.

However, there are signs this is changing, with younger, more urban and better-educated voters playing down such identities. The dispute led to a spate of ethnic violence that led to the death of 1,200 people and displaced some 600,000.

Perhaps the most exciting addition in the update is the inclusion of actual multiplayer, which was a feature the developers had repeatedly touted pre-release, only for it to be missing when the game came out.

We're adding much more depth to trading, making it an interesting and viable way to make a living in the game. Check Out the full patch notes for No Man's Sky Update 1.3 here. Part of this is probably because he also actively participates in the Galactic Hub subreddit, which is a group of players dedicated to mapping out a portion of No Man's Sky's vast galaxy. With the new trade goods being added in and a tiered crafting system, players could essentially supply and demand as they see fit across the stars.
