The No Man's
Sky Website announces No Man's Sky Beyond
as the next chapter in No Man's
, saying this will bring expanded multiplayer support to the procedurally
generated space game this summer in an update that will be free for all existing
players. They call this "a radical new social and multiplayer experience which empowers players
everywhere in the universe to meet and play together." But they also stress that
this will not make the game into an MMOG, and that it will involve no
subscription fees and no microtransactions.
about the news, saying there will be two additional updates in
No Man's Sky Beyond beyond No Man's Sky Online, promising more information
"soon." In the meantime, they offer this
very short teaser trailer
along with the following announcement:
We know that there is a lot of
hunger out there for news and updates on No Manís Sky. We wanted to share some
information from behind the scenes.
Our next chapter will be called No Manís Sky: Beyond, coming Summer 2019.
Each chapter for No Manís Sky has been more successful than the last. Thanks to

These changes are an answer to how we have seen people playing since the release
of NEXT, and is something weíve dreamed of for a long time.
We will talk more about each component when we know we can be precise, and look
forward to sharing more in the coming weeks.
Beyond will be our most ambitious chapter so far, and something weíve been
working ridiculously hard on. Weíll continue to support No Manís Sky in this way
for the foreseeable future.
Itís unexpected but so rewarding to see so many accolades and nominations for No
Manís Sky as Best On-going or Most Evolved this year. To some NEXT may have felt
like a natural end-point for our journey, but for us it was another step on a
