[Update #2]: No Man's Sky's Origins update has made planets significantly more unique and interesting to explore!

[Update]: No Man's Sky's Desolation update has brought in a bit of a survival-horror atmosphere.

Two days ago EA announced that Need for Speed Heat is getting cross-platform multiplayer, and already I have more good news on that front. According to the latest developer blog, Hello Games will be introducing full cross-play for No Man's Sky!

Once the June 11th update arrives, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players will all be able to explore the universe together without any sort of limitations. You can also expect Man's Sky to arrive for the Xbox Game Pass and Windows 10, meaning you'll have plenty of platforms to choose from as well.

"A tremendous amount of work has gone into this update and the underlying technology and systems," reads the dev update. "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. Meanwhile we are continuing to work hard on new content updates, large and small for the future."

"Making No Man’s Sky available to vast new audiences, and allowing those audiences to come together, has been something we’ve been building towards for a long time. We’re lucky to have one of the nicest and most welcoming gaming communities there is, and it’s a delight to be able to allow them to play together. The big question is, who have you always wanted to play with?"

You can read a little bit more about the cross-play update, as well as check out the full patch notes, over at the No Man's Sky website. Have fun!
