Cross-play is coming to No Man’s Sky from tomorrow, June 11. Allowing players across all platforms to play with one another. As an added bonus, the game will be coming to Xbox Games Pass too!
If you have the Xbox Game Pass you will be able to play No Man’s Sky for free as of June 11, on both Windows 10 and on Xbox One.
Players playing through VR, PC, PS4, Xbox, Windows 10 or GoG will be able to connect together and fly the universe together. The update has been timed perfectly for the game to launch on Game Pass “to allow everyone in the community to benefit from the influx of new players that Game Pass brings.”
With it’s rocky start in 2016, Hello Games have been updating their game with underwater content, mechs and other great stability fixes. If you were ever hesitant to start playing the game, now is the best time to get it. Especially being on the Game Pass. According to head of publishing Tim Woodley, the developers have been “quietly reworking the networking back-end of the game to get all versions of the game onto one single multiplayer base.”
If you’ve ever wanted to visit those huge planetary bases built on high-end PCs, you can now visit them even if you’re on an Xbox.
The update adds general improvements across the board, including speech to text, improved lobbies and fireteams. Also, a set of other tweaks to multiplayer, VR and the game as a whole.
Hello Games are determined to make this game great, teasing at an “eventful summer” for No Man’s Sky.
