In a blog post made onto PlayStation.Blog, Hello Games founder and creator/director of Joe Danger and No Man’s Sky, Sean Murray, announced that No Man’s Sky Beyond will be getting a physical disc release on PlayStation 4 next month.
No Man’s Sky Beyond was a major update to the already existing game that features three major components: Online, Virtual Reality, and General Improvements. No Man’s Sky Beyond was released earlier this month on 14 August 2019. And now as Murray has revealed, No Man’s Sky Beyond will be getting a physical disc release.
This is something Murray talks about in his blog post:
Those discs represented the first step along an amazing three-year journey that we and the No Man’s Sky community have been on together. It’s been a rollercoaster, but six major free updates later (Foundations, Pathfinder, Atlas Rises, Next, The Abyss and Visions), and we arrived at Beyond.
When the original version of No Man’s Sky was released, it was heavily criticized for being bland and boring due to its lack of variety in the gameplay design. Many felt that even though most of the game was procedurally generated, it failed to offer anything exciting to do.
But now, according to Murray, the reason why Hello Games is releasing No Man’s Sky Beyond on physical discs is that the game has become a more cohesive experience now thanks to updates as compared to how it was at its initial release.
“It seems only fitting that we should bundle up all of these three years of updates, re-master the game and re-issue it on a shiny new disc,” writes Murray.
The physical disc version of No Man’s Sky: Beyond will be available to buy on North America on September 10, and in Europe on 11th September.
