No Man's Sky Xbox One release set for July, bringing multiplayer

Sean Murray, the game's creator, said in the latest Inside Xbox livestream that the update finally unlocks "the potential that everyone's always seen in No Man's Sky".

If you've been waiting to play No Man's Sky on XBox One, you'll be happy to hear that it's headed your way on July 24th.

Additionally, developer Hello Games shared the new cover art for the title, which will be the above picture, but obviously on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC cases.

More importantly, it was also revealed that the update will include proper multiplayer functionality.

According to Murray, the UK-based studio has been playtesting multiplayer for the last six months, and in the process, the game has evolved into a very new experience that it thinks players will enjoy.

Nearly everything in the game will be available in the new cooperative multiplayer mode. This doesn't allow you to take advantage of Discord's voice and text chat services, but it does allow Discord to show your Xbox One activity to your friends. Murray's basic description of what players can do is a bit reminiscent of Dark Souls' multiplayer where players can either help or hurt each others' experience. Fight as a pirate or a wingman in epic space battles with friends and enemies.

Murray did not give any sort of player cap or limit on how many people you can squad up with. The multiplayer mode will also allow players to build and customize race tracks to share them online with others.
