Most online multiplayer games this console generation require players to pay for a subscription service to either Xbox Live or PlayStation Plus. However, even though No Man’s Sky technically falls into the realm, Sony is going to skip the need for a PlayStation Plus requirement this time around.
According to Game Informer, Sony has confirmed that all you’ll need to play No Man’s Sky is an Internet connection.
PS Plus won’t be a requirement to play online, however you will need to connected to the internet for your discoveries to register with the universal atlas.
Because let’s face it. While there are hundreds of thousands of other players out there, it’s not like you’re ever going to see them! Does that really count as a multiplayer game? I don’t think so.
No Man’s Sky launches for the PlayStation 4 on Aug 9. The PC version has been delayed three days to Aug. 12.
