You can now play with your friends no matter if they own a PS4, Xbox One or PC.
Taken from Engadget … No Man’s Sky developer Hello Games has detailed the latest update for its popular space exploration game, and it’s a big one. Starting tomorrow, No Man’s Sky will allow PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC owners to play with one another. The addition of crossplay comes on the same day that No Man’s Sky will join Game Pass on both Xbox One and PC.
Hello Games co-founder Sean Murray said the studio spent months secretly rebuilding No Man’s Sky networking backend to make crossplay a possibility. “A tremendous amount of work has gone into this update and the underlying technology and systems,” he said. “We’ve moved to an entirely new networking architecture, with more flexibility for the future, allowing players to play together regardless of platform.”
When you install the update, you’ll see players from other platforms appear while flying through space, exploring planets and visiting the Space Anomaly. You’ll be able to tell if someone is playing on another platform, thanks to a handy controller icon next to their name. What’s more, you’ll be able to add those players to an in-game friends list so that you can play with them again in the future.
