No Man’s Sky coming to Xbox One later this year
Finally after the two years of its initial release for PlayStation 4 and PC, No Man’s Sky is coming soon to Xbox One later this year.
Game publisher 505 Games will handle the physical distribution of the game and the copies of games will also be available at retail. The Xbox version will include all content developed so far for the other versions including large “Atlas Rises” update.
Hello Games co-founder Sean Murray says that No Man’s Sky will be enhanced for the Xbox One X with HDR and 4K support. Xbox players will get the entire expansion set for the game, including the Foundation, Pathfinder, and Atlas Rises updates.
There is also a big update of No Man’s Sky scheduled to come this summer. It is not clear if the Xbox One version will come with this update or not. The company calls this update No Man’s Sky NEXT and is said to be the biggest update of the game so far.
“We’ve learned a lot over the last few years, faster than we would have liked,” said Murray in an email to press. “I’d love to avoid talking completely and just make things people can play, but we knew this was going to leak anyway, and I think it’s news that should make a lot of folks happy.”
The most recent update, Atlas Rises, was released last summer that added 30 hours of story as well as more planetary variety. After the initial release, the game has received two major updates and third one will be the biggest one.
After the availability on Xbox One Platform, Nintendo Switch will only be the major platform missing the game.
