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. With your team it will be possible to build and share complex colonies on the planets you visit. A new third-person perspective is also being added to the game.

Other features coming to the significant NEXT update / expansion are; unlimited base building, and the ability to command freighters - or even a fleet of frigates. The upcoming addition of the game's Next Update, finally brings full multiplayer and allows you to team up with fellow explorers so the long journey doesn't feel quite so lonely. Take a look at the new trailer below to find out more.

No Man's Sky's Next update will deploy on July 24 alongside the Xbox One version of the game in the U.S. and July 27 in Europe.

Hello Games have got round to explaining exactly you will be getting when the big Next update lands for No Man's Sky. The space explore-'em-up is now fully playable in first or third person-both on foot and inside your ship. All Hello Games has confirmed is that you can personalise your appearance, but the trailer seems to suggest playing as different races, with customisable spacesuits. New planetary rings and improved space visuals have also been introduced. Textures for ground, water, and clouds have been improved while ships, NPCs, and buildings have significantly more detail.
