Building castles in the sky.

No Man's Sky, the ambitious open-space exploration game in a procedurally-generated universe, just received a massive update appropriately named NEXT.

It brings a whole bunch of changes and additions across the board, most notably:

- Option to switch between first and third person view at will
- Visual upgrades to ships, NPCs, buildings, terrain textures, space vistas - pretty much everything
- You can now build far more complex bases anywhere on the planet
- Build your own fleet, upgrade it, and send it out or keep it close while exploring a system

The multiplayer element of NEXT is not yet included in the DRM-free edition of the game. Read more about the delay below:


"[i]From launch, the DRM-free edition of No Man's Sky will include all single-player content introduced by NEXT: third-person mode, upgraded visuals, better base building, player customization, and more.

However the multiplayer component will not be ready at launch; we expect it to be released later this year as full multiplayer parity remains in the pipeline.

For a small, independent studio, developing the feature across multiple platforms is a hugely ambitious and technical challenge which resulted in this delayed release. Hello Games is however joining forces with GOG.COM to introduce full multiplayer via the GOG Galaxy platform.

We appreciate your immense support and patience.

So happy I didn't take the refund, going to stick with DRM free and support GOG. That being said good on you for letting people have the option to refund even after 2 years.

i hope not, given that GOG promised we'd never need Galaxy for anything except the inconvenience of yet another game library software...

GR00T: It's already necessary for Gwent as well as multiplayer for some other games. The 'no DRM' and not needing Galaxy is with respect to single player only.
to quote their FAQ:

GOG Galaxy is fully optional because you don’t need it to play games on GOG.com.

so they lied and it's not fully optional because NMS is a 100% online game?

No, you can play it without Galaxy. You'll need Galaxy for multiplayer, whenever that comes to the GOG version. You'll still be able to play it single player without Galaxy though.
Yeah seems gog galaxy will be for MP login, I guess I'm ok with that, gives them some control over the MP experience? but I hope it doesn't mean people with mods will experience blacklisting or bannings!!! that would be shocking!

Also it seems HelloGames forgets that this game is from 2016, do we still need the $59.95 price tag? I'll wait for the next special, and maybe gog can work on getting that galaxy client working under Linux ;)

Certainly GOG has its disadvantages compared to steam! 2 steps forward, 1 step back...
