'No Man's Sky' Adds Multiplayer, Third Person Mode In Free Update
No Man's Sky's hype died out quite quickly, mostly due to an under populated gaming world and fidgety controls.
A new free update is set to expand the game - and add a third person mode to the space-exploring adventure. No Mans's Sky Next is set to expand the game world with a fleshed-out multiplayer, third person content and a whole host of new, ringed planets.
The graphics are overhauled as well as the addition of new gameplay styles, including the ability to build your base on any planet, rather than the limited amounts that were available before.
The press release offers insight into multiplayer, stating it'll give players the chance to 'help friends to stay alive, or pray on others to survive'.
