Hello Games have revealed the first details of No Man’s Sky’s next big update, which releases sometime this summer.
Murray was keen to stress that the addition of an online component does not mean the game is becoming an MMO.
“Whilst this [No Man’s Sky Online] 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.”
For the time being, there’s little information about what else Beyond will feature, but more details are set to be unveiled “in the coming weeks.”
What do you think No Man’s Sky’s “most ambitious chapter so far” will include? Let us know below or in the forums.
Rebellion have confirmed a follow up to Sniper Elite 4 is currently in development, along with a standalone VR title that’s being worked on by Just Add Water (Oddworld, Gravity Crash).
The remaster will have “stunning new visuals and a host of new features,” including 4K and HDR support. It’ll also include new playable characters, a photo mode, online multiplayer for up to 16 players and comes with all previously released DLC.
Sniper Elite V2 Remastered launches sometime later this year. You can check out the trailer below.
Sniper Elite 3 Ultimate Edition also arrives in 2019, along with all previously released content and a few Switch-exclusive features, such as local wireless multiplayer and motion control support.

Bethesda have shared more details on the three major updates coming to Fallout 76 for free later this year, which is good news for those of us still enjoying the game.
Here’s all the information on the update:
The Nuclear Winter update follows Wild Appalachia, arriving sometime this summer, and adds high-level Vault raids and a prestige system for players above level 50. It also adds a new mode that’s said to be “an entirely new way to play Fallout 76.”
The final major update is Wastelanders, which will be released towards the end of the year. This is probably the most significant update content wise, with players said to be able to “embark on a tale with true choice and consequences.”
Wastelanders includes new main questlines, new factions, features and events along with “more surprises.”

Respawn Entertainment have officially unveiled Apex Legends, their Battle Royale title set within the Titanfall universe.
The game features squad-based gunplay, with players forming a team of three from the selection of eight Legends. According to Respawn, Legends are “easy to pick up and learn, but challenging to master.”
Certain Battle Royale tropes have been given a new twist in Apex Legends, with players actually able to bring back fallen team members by utilising one-time use Respawn Beacons.
Players can also tag equipment and enemies for their squad, and weapon attachments and gear automatically gets assigned to the appropriate piece of equipment when picked up thanks to the game’s “intelligent inventory system”.
“Our goal in every game you play is that you come in with a plan but you leave with a story,” said Drew McCoy, Lead Producer for Apex Legends.
“We’re building a game that is not only going to deliver a fun and memorable experience at launch, but something we can keep growing for a long time to come.”
During this evening’s live stream Respawn confirmed that Apex Legends does include microtransactions, but they will be limited to cosmetic items only.
The game will also feature a Battle Pass which players can purchase for “exclusive cosmetic items earned through gameplay.”
