Hello Games' No Man's Sky
received a mixed reception when it was released exclusively on PlayStation 4 and PC in 2016. Since then, the game has received several updates to improve the overall player experience. If you've always been curious as to what the sandbox title could offer, you don't need to wonder anymore; the game will be coming to Xbox One later this year.
Inspired by classic science-fiction, the game puts players into an "infinite procedural universe" where they can explore many unique planets and stars, and encounter the lifeforms that inhabit them. The game offers no loading screens and "no limits", with the chance that you'll explore somewhere that no other player has ever been. The role that you choose to play is completely your choice. Be a fighter that steals from the weak (or takes out pirates), or be a trader who looks for the richest resources that can be sold on for huge rewards. Alternatively, you can just sit back and explore at your own leisure.
When the title comes to Xbox One, it will include the game and all three of the major updates that the title has received so far. This includes Foundation, which introduced base building, freighter ownership and the survival game mode; Pathfinder, which introduced vehicles, base sharing and permadeath; and Atlas Rises, which added another 30 hours of storyline, procedural missions and a graphical overhaul. Speaking of graphics, the game will also be enhanced for Xbox One X, offering "support for HDR, 4K, and more".
As well as the above three updates, the title will include a fourth major update, Next. It is touted to be the biggest update of the title so far and is due to be released this summer, so expect the Xbox One version of the title to arrive around the same time. Hello Games promises that they'll then continue to support the game with "significant and free content updates". More details on the Next update have been promised for the future.
We don't have them yet, but we'll publish a story as soon as we pick up the No Man's Sky achievements.
