No Man's Sky To Have "More Traditional Multiplayer" After All

Hello Games confirmed to be working on a plan for a "more traditional multiplayer experience" in No Man's Sky, for those players looking for it. (No Man's Sky, PC, PS4, Sean Murray)

That sounds great. I'd love the ability to switch between tradition MP and SP exploring. Kinda like how Destiny works in the sense that at any time you can just go back into orbit and choose to play in the Crucible. That would be ideal.

Dogfights in space, make it happen guys!

I'd love to have something like Star Citizen, but with more arcade-like dogfighting.

The chance to create empires or pirates guild across the universe would be just amazing. Others could just dedicate themselves to crafting and gathering and exploring if they wish so.

Can't wait for No Man's Sky, I've been following Hello Games since their reveal. Game looks freakin' amazing, I love exploration in games, LOVE IT! I think I will sink 200 hours of gameplay in the first 2 weeks.

When was the last time we saw dogfights in space? It's been forever... What? Rogue Squadron? That would be awesome to see!

@URNightmare Good call, man! Totally forgot about that game. I might have to boot that up tonight :)

Last time I remember dogfights in space was in Starhawk maybe?
Alexious  +   108d ago
Well, there'll be a lot of dogfighting with Elite: Dangerous and Star Citizen!

We will see

I'm going to name my planet TPbunghole and the creatures on it Bungholians.

You are trying too hard.

With all the randomly generated worlds there might be one where creatures have starfish of unusual size. It's your destiny to find it.

I hope some aliens that look like Robert Stack are there too so they can give them a cavity search.

Good. This is the only thing that solidifies the experience for me. I'll be glad to host my own server if they allow us to do so. I've managed hundreds of servers so far. Ranging from Ultima Online to World of Warcraft servers to Terraria, etc.

I cannot believe this is an indie title! Looks damn impressive, cannot wait to play it!

I love the news even though I'm not really that into multiplayer, but it worries me that we won't see this game launch in 2015, and that really saddens me.

I'm all about the exploration. It'll be nice if you could do that with a friend, but some kind of cat and mouse hunt across the galaxy would also be really exciting too.

That's what I'm routing for.
Mostafeto  +   108d ago
yeah that would be totally awesome to explore a galaxy with your friend like a co-op story mode and if you at the same time can chase and destroy each other that would be even better :D
mogwaii  +   108d ago
Thats the thing, there really is no story but yeah to be able to meet up with a friend and discover would be great, i suppose you can but its a matter of finding each other. This game excites me to no end, thinking outside the box, its awesome!

I'd rather they didn't, personally.
I like MP games to be MP games (Driveclub, Battlefield - just lose the SP) and SP games to be SP (stop tacking on crap multiplayer AC, Tombraider etc).
Not sure why every game tries to be everything to every man.
Blacklash93  +   107d ago
It's not that black-and-white. Some SP-focused games make solid MP experiences. Uncharted 2 and Mass Effect 3 did well for them.

Anyway, this is integrated SP and MP, not totally seperate modes. These exploratory games make sense for that. Minecraft does it, Dark Souls, etc. Multiplayer and social features are a great fit for these games that enrich the overall experience.

It made sense for this game in the reveal with the way it was explained and I'd have no problem with players in the normal game finding each other and working together etc.
Just not sure I then want a seperate mode tacked on where I could waste my time having boring MP scraps or whatever.
