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.

Extensive Visual Overhaul:

Unlimited Base Building:

Create bigger and better bases than ever before, with dramatically increased base building complexity and size limits
Architect and own multiple bases

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.
