If you’re interested in trying out the free update and all of the changes that it brings, then you don’t have long to wait. Here’s everything you need to know about No Man’s Sky NEXT’s release time, and how to get the update.

No Man’s Sky NEXT Release Time

No Man’s Sky NEXT will hit PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One starting tomorrow, July 24, at 9AM EST, or 6AM PST. If you’re located over in Europe, then you can expect the update to arrive sometime around 3PM in continental Europe. Of course, there is always the chance that the update will arrive a little bit later on console, due to store update times.

If you haven’t been paying attention to No Man’s Sky NEXT, or any of the news out of Hello Games, then you probably aren’t really sure what to expect out of No Man’s Sky NEXT. So, we’ve put together a list of things you can look forward to.

Multiplayer with friends.

Perhaps the biggest thing to look forward to, players will be able to dive into the world of No Man’s Sky with three of their friends and explore the galaxy, build epic bases, and commandeer fleets.

Command Fleets of Freighters

One big thing that many players wanted to see more of in the original No Man’s Sky was fleets and freighters. This massive ships and their groupings were shown off in the original marketing for the game, so seeing them finally make their way into the game will be a big change for many players.

Extensive Overhaul of the Graphics and Visuals

On top of everything else, you’ll also be able to dive deep into a completely enhanced and overhauled world in No Man’s Sky NEXT. Flora and fauna have been updated. Visuals themselves have been overhauled and given a brand-new look to make the game more like its original vision. You can also count on extended base building and unlimited building to help you make the most of your time in No Man’s Sky NEXT.

There’s a lot to look forward to when it comes to No Man’s Sky NEXT, and players should prepare to dive into the game starting tomorrow at 9AM EST. We’ll have new guides and content coming out after the update releases, so make sure you check out our No Man’s Sky NEXT guides for more helpful information and content about the game.
