Hello Games’ Sean Murray said in a blog post that No Man’s Sky will be one of the few games that will allow this. “We are excited to be able to announce that, starting tomorrow, PlayStation 4 players, Xbox One players and PC players will all be able to explore, journey, survive, build, and trade together. Excitingly, No Man’s Sky is joining what is at the moment a fairly small group of games which support cross-platform multiplayer.”
Some of the other updates include:
- Improved chat features
- VR enhancements
- Bug fixes
- Improvement in the game’s quality of life
With the introduction of cross platform play, No Man’s Sky will join games like Minecraft, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Rocket League, among other games.
