    The No Man's Sky Website announces No Man's Sky Beyond as the next chapter in No Man's Sky, saying this will bring expanded multiplayer support to the procedurally generated space game this summer in an update that will be free for all existing players. They call this "a radical new social and multiplayer experience which empowers players everywhere in the universe to meet and play together." But they also stress that this will not make the game into an MMOG, and that it will involve no subscription fees and no microtransactions. Sean Murray tweets about the news, saying there will be two additional updates in No Man's Sky Beyond beyond No Man's Sky Online, promising more information "soon." In the meantime, they offer this very short teaser trailer along with the following announcement:

    We know that there is a lot of hunger out there for news and updates on No Man’s Sky. We wanted to share some information from behind the scenes.

    Our next chapter will be called No Man’s Sky: Beyond, coming Summer 2019.

    Each chapter for No Man’s Sky has been more successful than the last. Thanks to our community, NEXT our large release last year was especially so. It went on to bring enjoyment to millions of new players, and it helped to change the legacy of this game we care so much about.

    Earlier this year, whilst working on our roadmap of three future updates, we decided we wanted to interweave their features, and had a vision for something much more impactful.

    We are excited to announce that Beyond will contain those three major updates rolled into one larger free release.

    The first component of Beyond we are announcing today is No Man’s Sky Online.

    No Man’s Sky Online includes a radical new social and multiplayer experience which empowers players everywhere in the universe to meet and play together. Whilst this brings people together like never before, and has many recognisable online elements, we don’t consider No Man’s Sky to be an MMO – it won’t require a subscription, won’t contain microtransactions, and will be free for all existing players.

    These changes are an answer to how we have seen people playing since the release of NEXT, and is something we’ve dreamed of for a long time.

    We will talk more about each component when we know we can be precise, and look forward to sharing more in the coming weeks.

    Beyond will be our most ambitious chapter so far, and something we’ve been working ridiculously hard on. We’ll continue to support No Man’s Sky in this way for the foreseeable future.

    It’s unexpected but so rewarding to see so many accolades and nominations for No Man’s Sky as Best On-going or Most Evolved this year. To some NEXT may have felt like a natural end-point for our journey, but for us it was another step on a longer voyage.

    So, separate game, or add-on similar to the way Elite Dangerous: Horizon is (which requires the base game, but is a separate entity)?

    I missed this. Serves me right for reading the site on an ancient POS monitor.
