But with NEXT, all of that hits 11. This adds to some vehicles that have already been added to the game in previous free updates, but it's not apparent if these are mainly for gathering resources or if there are new threats that will require the use of these bipedal mechs.

A new video trailer has been shared for interplanetary sci-fi adventuring game No Man's Sky. We'll have to find out NEXT week (you can blame Mr. Murray for that pun), when the Next update hits PS4 and PC alongside the game's anticipated Xbox One release. The update also brings with it a significant update for the game's visuals.

There's a lot to unpack in this update this isn't minutely detailed in the trailer, so Sean Murray released a list of the biggest additions heading to the game next week. There's also the option to include multiple bases, if you wish, which is great news for players looking to explore together. This update adds a full multiplayer experience that allows players to team up with friends and random players to reach their goals.

Fight as a pirate or a wingman in epic space battles with friends and enemies. Multiplayer opens up fun competitions where you can design and create exocraft race tracks and trails to share online.

Character customization allows you to personalize your appearance.

We can see that players can now explore planets with other players, doing so in a newly added third person mode.

Improved space visuals that make the game even more handsome. They have also touched up the graphics in general, with things like better ground, water, and cloud textures.

Bases can now be built anywhere on any planet. With hundreds of available base parts, there is no real limit to what users can conjure up. Finally, if space combat and exploration is your niche instead of vanilla planet discovery and colonization, you can opt to create your own fleet of frigates that can be controlled via your fresighter itself. Users can send their fleet to explore the universe or deploy them to explore a specific solar system. Friends can be invited on board and you can embark on multiplayer missions from the Galactic Commission Station that is found on the bridge.

No Man's Sky launched to much fanfare in the summer of 2016 but most would universally agree that it was a major letdown. In our review we gave the game a 6/10 and stated "No Man's Sky was never going to live up to the hype, but sadly even those with tempered expectations are likely to be somewhat disappointed".
