In case you missed it, Hello Games’ ambitious space epic No Man’s Sky is coming to Switch on October 7.
If you want to experience the game with friends or other players, in general, you may have to wait for an update later. According to the game’s official website, No Man’s Sky “Switch Edition” will be a single-player experience at launch.
To further clarify, you’ll still get all the benefits of the “award-winning live service game,” but apparently there won’t be any multiplayer elements. This version will also continue to benefit from ongoing post-release development, so we assume there is a chance of a multiplayer patch at a later date.
When No Man’s Sky was initially released in 2016, the game was criticized for not including certain multiplayer capabilities and features. Instances of players meeting up and not even being able to see each other were also reported, after mixed messages about multiplayer elements.
