Hello Games' Sean Murray recently went on Inside Xbox to talk about the controversial sandbox survival space title's port, which arrives on Xbox One on July 24. Murray revealed that an extensive multiplayer update would be shipping to all versions of the game alongside the Xbox One release.

“This is something that I wish we could have done sooner, but I’m so glad it’s happening,” Murray said. He describes the multiplayer elements of the game as "more Battlestar, it’s Star Trek away team, it’s fun and funny and emergent and kind of intense.” Murray notes that you can play with friends while exploring or "just come across other travelers." The multiplayer elements will allow for both co-op and a more aggressive PVP style of play within No Man's Sky's sandbox.
