Full PlayStation VR support announced for No Man’s Sky Beyond

Hello everyone! We’re excited to be able to tell you
more about No Man’s Sky: Beyond, a major free update coming in Summer 2019 and the
next big chapter in our journey.

Beyond is the culmination of several different strands
of development. We recently announced the first component, No Man’s Sky Online.
A dramatically updated multiplayer experience means players will be able to
explore and play together like never before.

Today we’re thrilled to announce the next major
component of Beyond: No Man’s Sky VR.

As creators of No Man’s Sky, we are in love with
everything sci-fi. Virtual reality feels like a science fiction become real,
and has always seemed like a perfect fit for this futuristic game of ours.

It’s completely unique to land on a world that no-one has
ever seen before and to really feel as if you’re there. The team has worked so
hard to make this a true VR experience rather than a port.

Grab the joystick and thruster to fly your starship
over an unexplored alien planet as you peer out of the cockpit at the view
below. Reach into your backpack to grab your multitool, touch it to switch to
terrain manipulation, and carve out intricate shapes with unprecedented
control. Play in multiplayer and casually wave to your friends non-VR friends
or fist bump your PS VR peers.

No Man’s Sky VR is not a separate mode, but the entire
game brought to life in virtual reality. Anything possible in No Man’s Sky,
NEXT or any other update is ready and waiting as an immersive and enriched VR

No Man’s Sky VR, like all the parts of Beyond, will be
free to existing players. However, we’re excited to announce that the release
of Beyond will see an exclusive retail release of the game on PS4. This
physical edition will come with the base game, VR support, and every update so
far, including Beyond.

By bringing full VR support, for free, to the millions
of players already playing the game, No Man’s Sky will become perhaps the most-owned
VR title when released. This amazes us, and is utterly humbling. The team is
working so hard to live up to the expectations that creates. We are excited for
that moment when millions of players will suddenly update and be able to set
foot on their home planets and explore the intricate bases they have built in
virtual reality for the first time.

As well as Online and VR, No Man’s Sky Beyond contains
a third major feature set that we’ll be talking more about when we can.

This is an exciting time. Thank you so much for being
with us on this most ambitious chapter of No Man’s Sky.
