No Man's Sky, Cross-play is here!

You probably know that Hello Games will be launching No Man's Sky on Xbox Game Pass but the company now revealed it will be arriving in style, i.e. with cross-play.

In case you didn't catch the pretty hefty batch of games that PC and console subscribers of Xbox Game Pass are getting in June, you can check it out here .

As for No Man's Sky, Hello Games are launching a Windows 10 version so PC gamers can try it out via Game Pass for PC. Behind the scenes, however, the dev worked on something that will bring the entire community together. 

"Do you have a friend on another gaming system with whom you've always wanted to explore the great unknown? A legendary base you’ve seen videos of but never been able to visit? A mission that you think would be great to play with friends on other platforms?" 

Hello Games clearly love rhetorical questions, but playing together is exactly what you'll be able to do come June 11, 2020, when PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players can enjoy No Man's Sky without platform restrictions.

It hasn't been long since No Man's Sky's last content update so the team really deserve all the plaudits, even more so after hearing about what it took.

"A tremendous amount of work has gone into this update and the underlying technology and systems. We've moved to an entirely new networking architecture, with more flexibility for the future, allowing players to play together regardless of platform. I’m very proud of the team that has worked so hard to make this happen", wrote Hello Games' head honcho Sean Murray.
