A new physical release for the PS5 version of No Man’s Sky is on the way, collecting all 20 updates on a single disc.
“The physical PlayStation 5 version will include a remastered disc containing all 20 updates, and it’s a great place for people to dive into the game,” says Hello Games co-founder Sean Murray in a press release. “This is the first time since the release of Beyond in 2019 that you can buy a copy of No Man’s Sky in stores. That version’s box boasted ‘contains all seven major updates.’ reaching our 20th free update is a reminder of how busy we’ve been in the last three years.”
The new PS5 edition will launch on October 7, 2022, alongside the Switch version.
While this is described as a “remastered” release in press materials, it’s unclear if there will be additional PS5-specific updates. No Man’s Sky has already received a free next-gen update alongside the launch of PS5 and Xbox Series X.
Still, for collectors, getting the complete No Man’s Sky package on a single disc is a tempting proposition. The best part of No Man’s Sky has been its frequent post-launch updates, but for people who prefer to keep their games on disc, there’s an intimidating download waiting every time you grab it off the shelf. This package will, at a minimum, immortalize a snapshot of No Man’s Sky as it exists in 2022.
There are many more games like No Man’s Sky to scratch the itch of space exploration.
