Hello Games officially announced this week via Inside Box that No Man’s Sky is set to receive a port for the Xbox One. The highly controversial game will be released on the console on Tuesday, July 24 in north America and Friday, July 27 in Europe.

The game is set to bring a full multiplayer experience for the first time to the game’s limitless, procedure-generated universe. This new multiplayer experience will be part of No Man’ Sky NEXT as a free update that launches simultaneously for new players on Xbox One and existing players for Windows PC and PlayStation 4.

Hello Games founder Sean Murray said on the news: “Multiplayer completely changes the No Man’s Sky experience; it’s emergent, fun and intense in ways we always wanted it to be. I’m so happy this is finally happening. It is genuinely exciting to be able to fully realize the potential so many people could see in No Man’s Sky. This will be our biggest update yet and we’re pumped to be bringing Xbox players along on the journey with us now too.”

Here’s a list of the new features players will be able to utilize for the new multiplayer mode for the sandbox universe:

* Explore the infinite universe with your friends, or bump into random travellers
* As you voyage together, friends will help you stay alive, or prey on others to survive
* Build bases from tiny shelters to complex colonies that you create as a team and can be seen by the community
* Be a pirate or a wingman in epic space battles with friends and foes
* Race exocraft across weird alien terrains and create tracks to share online

The launch of the game for Xbox One will include Next and three other major updates: Foundation, Pathfinder, Atlas Rises, and dozens of smaller patches. 505 Games is set to publish the physical Xbox One version worldwide. The game is currently available for PC and PlayStation 4.
