'No Man's Sky Next' trailer previews upcoming multiplayer mode

The game's procedurally generated universe will be expanding, enabling multiple players to band together and explore the vast, nearly unending expanse and enjoy the multitude of activities on offer in No Man's Sky's sandbox.

Hello Games has released a brand new trailer to show off a plethora of new and improved features coming to No Man's Sky with the NEXT update that will launch next week. The Base building mechanic will be a shared experience, and there will also be character customization options, methods to create and share race tracks, and more. Earlier this year, the company said it would be releasing a massive update this summer that would add true multiplayer to the game.

Check out the trailer above to get excited for the new content headed to the game - although some will say these features should have been included in the game since launch, there has never been a better time to check the exploration-based game out than now.

No Man's Sky will be launching on Xbox One alongside the NEXT update on 24th July in North America and 27th July in Europe. We're eager to see whether or not this next update will bring the game even closer to being a title worth coming back to even if it burned you initially. There's also significantly more detail added to ships, NPCs and buildings. New planetary rings and improved space visuals have also been introduced.

Third-person Viewpoint - The entire game, both on-foot and in a ship, can now be played from a third-person perspective, letting you see your customised character. Bases can be more complex and larger, and you have hundreds more base parts to choose from.

You can assemble and upgrade a fleet of frigates and command them from the bridge of your freighter. You can also build those bases anyplace on a planet instead of just in predefined areas.

Improved freighter base building allows a truly custom capital ship. Friends can be invited on board and you can embark on multiplayer missions from the Galactic Commission Station that is found on the bridge. We'll have to find out NEXT week (you can blame Mr. Murray for that pun), when the Next update hits PS4 and PC alongside the game's anticipated Xbox One release.
