Here's a look at No Man's Sky's new multiplayer mode in action

No Man's Sky has already changed into a game I've enjoyed far more since my initial review, and NEXT is just another excuse to get lost in it again. Check out the PlayStation Blog for more details. That will be even more true with the launch of Next, bringing a full multiplayer experience.

A new free update is set to expand the game - and add a third person mode to the space-exploring adventure. It's due next week-Tuesday, July 24-and has a new trailer.

"Team up with a small team of friends and explore the universe together, or be joined by random travellers", says Hello Games on the game's much-anticipated multiplayer.

"You can help friends to stay alive, or prey on others to survive", the studio explains. With your team it will be possible to build and share complex colonies on the planets you visit.

Character customisation allows you to personalise your appearance. First, there is a large visual overhaul that will let you play in either first or third person on-foot and in ship providing greater options for players.

Planetary rings and improved space visuals make space more handsome than ever.

Improved terrain generation, ground textures, water, and clouds.

New planetary rings and improved space visuals will make space "more attractive than ever" and the planetary terrain generation has been updated. Finally, if space combat and exploration is your niche instead of vanilla planet discovery and colonization, you can opt to create your own fleet of frigates that can be controlled via your fresighter itself.

Base building will no doubt be a huge thing for players. The limits to those bases have been expanded, meaning you won't be as restricted as you previously were.

Send your fleet into the universe or deploy them to help you explore. This includes base building, space battles, multiplayer, and more. Friends can be invited on board and you can embark on multiplayer missions from the Galactic Commission Station that is found on the bridge. We're eager to see whether or not this next update will bring the game even closer to being a title worth coming back to even if it burned you initially.
