The release of the update on July 24 was announced by Sean Murray of developer Hello Games in a broadcast of Microsoft’s Inside Xbox Live Stream. The update was announced at the end of March, according to the studio it is the largest expansion for the game so far.

No Man’s Sky came out in August 2016 and did not appear to contain a multiplayer, despite the fact that the developer had suggested that players might encounter each other. A year later an update appeared with a limited form of multiplayer, in which players can see each other as light balls and communicate.
