Got few friends into NMS; but they are on Steam; so I was wondering if I can actually play with them with my GOG version.
The new update is coming soon, so I would expect that either the multiplayer will improve, and maybe crossplay between GOG and Steam client will work just fine, or we will see a dejavu of last update, where GOG got multiplayer update after months from the release on Steam.

Considering the game is on sale on Steam, I don't mind spend 30 dollars for it; considering that I have got all the updates for free; although I want to continue to play on GOG, not on Steam, so I hope there is a way to avoid to spend 30 bucks for the same game, just to play with my friends online

AFAIK no, you can't join Steam MP players with the GOG version, but wait for the new Beyond version to be released, the new 'NMS Online' feature could change things totally.

That's what I was curious about; I could wait, but the 50% off the price on the game is expiring soon, so I was hoping to have a clear idea about cross play before it goes back to full price

AFAIK nope. No clear ideas. They just release the basic info that the Beyond update will have:

1. something online
2. something VR
3. something else

I assume details on any of the 3 bullet points will still take 1-2 months.
I hope that after updating BEYOND will be able to play with Steam friends.
