No Man’s Sky: Beyond is due out in just two days. To celebrate, Hello Games have let the alien-cat out of the procedurally generated bag and revealed more on what Beyond will be bringing to the game.
We already knew that Beyond will contain three major in-game updates, with one of the major updates being a greater online experience and the other consists of a full-fledged VR mode. Beyond will also be completely free for all No Man’s Sky players.
However, it’s now been revealed that the game intends to go even further, including having multiplayer support of between 16 and 32 players, a Nexus Social Space, creature taming/riding/milking, multiplayer missions, the implementation of a cooking system, ‘cooler aliens’, and much more.

We assume that the whole creature milking thing will be limited to certain alien creatures and that you won’t be able to just start tugging on the teats of every extraterrestrial being you come across. Perhaps you’ll be able to start a small farming business in multiplayer with your friends?
Players should note that the VR version of No Man’s Sky will only be compatible with PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift, and HTC Vive headsets. This means that Xbox-only players may feel a little left out. Both VR and non-VR players will be able to play together in multiplayer, though, so there’s no limits on that.
Beyond will hit No Man’s Sky on August 14th, 2019.
