First, Hello Games announced No Man’s Sky: Online – a new multiplayer experience free to everyone who owns the game. No microtransactions, no subscription. People were excited over it. Now, the team has announced the second of the three-part Beyond update: Virtual Reality support! That’s right, Interlopers – don your chosen VR helmet and prepare to traverse planets, coast through the clouds, and soar in the space lanes of our beloved NMS universe. As before, this will also be a free update for everyone that owns the game. Also, as an added bonus, NMS will see an exclusive release on the Playstation 4, which will include every update including Beyond. From the HG blog:
No Man’s Sky Virtual Reality is not a separate mode, but the entire game brought to life in virtual reality. Anything possible in No Man’s Sky, NEXT or any other update is ready and waiting as an immersive and enriched VR experience.
Don’t forget, this is just the second of three updates announced for NMS. The third is as yet unknown, but we’ll be ready when it drops. In the meantime, please feel free to join us over at the Atlas Codex Discord or the No Man’s Sky Discord while we wait in anticipation!
