From underwater exploration, to multiplayer, to a huge list of visual overhauls, No Man's Sky NEXT launches next week as part of a free update to the current game in addition to marking the arrival of the ambitious sci-fi game for Xbox One - with full Xbox One X 4K support day one. Check out the trailer after the jump.

New Multiplayer Mode:
  • Team up with a small group of friends to explore the universe together, or joined with random travellers online
  • Help friends stay alive, or prey on others to survive
  • Build shelter or complex colonies together to share with your team
  • Fight as a pirate or a wingman in epic space battles with friends and enemies
  • Race exocraft across weird alien terrains, creating race tracks and trails to share online

Extensive Visual Overhaul:
  • Play in third or first person, both on-foot and in ship
  • Gaze on planetary rings and improved space visuals that make space more beautiful than ever
  • Explore dramatically improved planetary terrain generation, ground textures, water and clouds that bring the environment to life
  • Enjoy significantly more detail added to ships, NPCs and buildings

Unlimited Base Building:
  • Build bases anywhere on any planet, with hundreds of new base parts added to the game
  • Create bigger and better bases than ever before, with dramatically increased base building complexity and size limits
  • Architect and own multiple bases

Command Freighters:
  • Assemble and upgrade a fleet of frigates and command them from the bridge of your freighter
  • Send your fleet out to into the universe or deploy them to help you as you explore a specific system
  • Build a truly custom capital ship with improved freighter base building
  • Invite your friends aboard and take on challenging multiplayer missions from
  • the Galactic Commision Station on your bridge

Massive props to indie developer Hello Games for taking on all the criticism from the original launch and steadily working to not only improve the experience but build and add several notable additions that make what we got back then look more like an Early Access version. The shared universe dream of No Man's Sky, now with proper co-op and not-so co-op mechanics should breathe new life into the ambitious go anywhere and do anything space-sim.

No Man's Sky NEXT re-launches next week on July 26 in Australia and New Zealand.

I just still don't like procedural games, it feels cheap to me. I want to see hand-crafted game-worlds and art formed with intelligent design and purpose.

Have they implemented HDR?
