Calabasas, Calif. – Aug. 2, 2019 – Hello Games, an indie development team based in the United Kingdom, will release the free No Man’s Sky: BEYOND update on Wednesday, Aug. 14 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. No Man’s Sky: BEYOND rolls three major updates into one larger free release, which includes No Man’s Sky Online, a radical new social and multiplayer experience that empowers players everywhere in the universe to meet and play together. The BEYOND launch also delivers No Man’s Sky Virtual Reality to supporting platforms, bringing the entire game to life in an immersive and enriched VR experience.
Inspired by the adventure and imagination found in classic science-fiction, No Man’s Sky presents players with a galaxy to explore, filled with unique planets and lifeforms, constant danger and action. In No Man’s Sky, every star is the light of a distant sun, each orbited by planets filled with life, and explorers can visit any they choose. Players can fly smoothly from deep space to planetary surfaces, with no loading screens, and no limits. In this infinite procedurally generated universe, players discover places and creatures that no others have seen before – and perhaps never will again.
The No Man’s Sky: BEYOND update is the seventh major free update for the limitless procedural universe since the game’s launch in 2016. BEYOND is comparable in size to the hugely popular NEXT update released last year.
No Man’s Sky is available for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One digitally and at retail, with the Xbox One retail version published by 505 Games. For more information about No Man’s Sky and the upcoming BEYOND update, please visit www.nomanssky.com.
