Earlier this year Hello Games announced that they’ll be releasing No Man’s Sky in VR. Now they have finally unveiled a release date for the VR game.
Titled No Man’s Sky Beyond, the game will contain three major updates rolled into one larger free release. These changes are a mix of features that their team hass been working on.
“An expanded Online experience will bring a radical new social and multiplayer experience which empowers players everywhere in the universe to meet and play together,” said Hello Games.
“Meanwhile VR support will bring the entire game experience to life in virtual reality. Grab the joystick and thruster to fly your starship over an unexplored alien planet as you peer out of the cockpit at the view below. Reach into your backpack to grab your multitool, touch it to switch to terrain manipulation, and carve out intricate shapes with unprecedented control. Play in multiplayer and casually wave to your non-VR friends or fist bump your VR peers. Anything possible in No Man’s Sky, NEXT or any other update will soon be ready and waiting as an immersive and enriched VR experience.”
This will be a free update for owners of the game and VR users will be able to enjoy the experience soon enough starting August 14th, 2019.
