Hello Games Sheds More Light On Multiplayer For No Man's Sky

No Man's Sky from Hello Games is an ambitious title filled with planetary exploration, and the developer says that a "more traditional" multiplayer experience is also in the works.

Speaking to Gamespot, Hello Games' co-founder Sean Murray talks about how the game will evolve post-release as the developer continues to work on it. One of those future aspects of the game is multiplayer.

"There is this thing," says Murray, "which I'm not going to talk about now, that is a plan for multiplayer – for people to have a more traditional multiplayer experience within the game. And that's something we'll deal with further down the line that is exciting, but that's not something that's core to the game now."

Hello Games has downplayed multiplayer in No Man's Sky so far, saying that the game is so big that it's unlikely friends will encounter each other.

Our Take
I'm not a multiplayer buff, so take my comments accordingly, but I'm personally not thirsty for a "traditional" multiplayer experience in the game, but we'll have to see exactly what Hello Games has in mind for the title on this front.
