The upcoming No Man's Sky: Beyond update is said to bring some radical new features to the game, starting with greatly enhanced multiplayer. During Sony's new State of Play presentation, it was revealed that Hello Games will also be implementing virtual reality support with the update.
Speaking more regarding this in a blog post, Hello Games said:
As creators of No Man’s Sky, we are in love with everything sci-fi. Virtual reality feels like a science fiction become real, and has always seemed like a perfect fit for this futuristic game of ours.
It’s completely unique to land on a world that no-one has ever seen before and to really feel as if you’re there, and the team has worked so hard to make this a true VR experience rather than a port.
The studio also confirmed that this won't be a separate mode just for VR, as the full game will be playable in virtual reality alongside regular players in multiplayer once the update hits. And, this being an update, all this will be free to those who own the game.
No Man's Sky VR will be available on both PlayStation VR and SteamVR, so the only party left out from this Beyond component are the Xbox One players. No Man's Sky: Beyond update is slated to launch this summer, and don't forget that Hello Games still has one more major component of the update left to reveal.
