No Man’s Sky’s latest Switch port won’t let players explore the stars together, at least for now.
No Man’s Sky is often considered one of the greatest rebranding games in gaming history. Although Hello Games initially promised many things with their space survival game, they were unable to deliver on nearly all of them, causing a backlash from the video game community. Fans were furious when the game first launched in 2016, but in the years that followed, the developers added free updates, expanded the game, and brought No Man’s Sky. to Xbox One, PS5 and Xbox Series X, regaining fame with gamers.
The latest platform that No Man’s Sky will set foot on is the Nintendo Switch. A vast, exploratory experience tucked into the Switch’s handheld design is what Hello Games’ Sean Murray says “feels completely natural and new at the same time.” Getting a game as big as No Man’s Sky to work on a less powerful system than the PS4 is quite a feat, especially with all the previous updates to the game also included in this new version.
One notable thing that will be missing from the Nintendo Switch version of No Man’s Sky, however, is the multiplayer mode. Introduced back in 2018, the multiplayer mode was something that was originally promised to be present in the game experience, but it was absent from its initial launch. This means that the Nintendo Switch version of No Man’s Sky will be a single-player experience, but unfortunately all the major updates to the survival title will still be added to the update when it launches in October.
There’s also a chance that a multiplayer mode will come to the title later, as Hello Games has stated that they will continue to provide game updates and expansions after its release. There’s no official word on when or whether multiplayer will actually launch, but even if it’s not in the Switch port of No Man’s Sky, the game still has a lot to offer gamers. enjoy. From making allies with aliens to fending off invasions, at least gamers who explore the galaxy alone won’t get bored right away.
Along with the release of the Nintendo Switch version, the physical PS5 release of the game will also launch on the same day. This will be the first time since 2019 that gamers can buy a physical game disc of No Man’s Sky. In addition, when Sony’s PSVR2 is released, No Man’s Sky will also be available on that platform, promising an even more immersive experience.
