No Man’s Sky is getting a huge update and it will be available on the Xbox One console for the very first time. This update is being called “No Man’s Sky Next” and will add far more content than when the game launched back in August 2016.
Hello Games revealed in a press release that this is a free update coming to the PC and PS4 versions of the game while later in 2018 Xbox One owners will be able to play the game for the very first time. Sadly though, there was no mention of the game ever being released for the Nintendo Switch console yet.
“We are calling this No Man’s Sky Next because it is an important next step in a journey for No Man’s Sky, for Hello Games and for our devoted community.” said Sean Murray, founder at Hello Games. “Each update for No Man’s Sky has been more successful than the last; this was especially true of our last update Atlas Rises. It emboldens the team to push ourselves further. This journey is far from over, and it’s exciting to be working again on something you know will surprise people.”
The Xbox One version of the game will have all of the previously released updates and DLC while also offering new stuff from the “Next” content update. Hello Games is sure to release more details on the new content in the coming weeks. 505 Games will be responsible for distributing the physical copy of the Xbox One version later this year.
