No Man’s Sky launched last year with mixed reception and developer Hello Games faced a lot of backlash from the gaming community over skipping some promised features from No Man’s Sky like its multiplayer component which was straight up absent from the game. However, a year after the game’s launch it seems that the studio is finally bringing multiplayer to No Man’s Sky.
While it has not been officially confirmed but, datamines of the Atlas ARG site’s CSS reveals details about the upcoming Mo Man’s Sky update 1.3. According to the datamine, the upcoming update for the game will include multiplayer along with new ships and new worlds. However, until it is officially announced, take it as a grain of salt.
In related news, No Man’s Sky uses procedural generational techniques to render near an infinite number of planets and according to game’s creator himself, that the game’s development was like building a rocket ship.
He added that working on the game engine was fun for him as he wrote the code for his engine day and night and then things changed when the first trailer for the game was showcased.
hen we showed it, we showed the first trailer, and from then on it was like, it was like we were building a rocketship on the way up, like, to the sun, being fired into the sun with the skin burning from our faces, right? It was like, it was a bit of a rollercoaster ride from then on. But at the start it was genuinely just a hobby and something super enjoyable.
While No Man’s Sky was a fun little experiment for Hello Games the studio currently has another procedurally generated game in development. Sean Murray revealed that Hello Games is working on another game.
No Man’s Sky is a first-person action-adventure game developed by Hello Games for PC and PlayStation 4.
