Michael Collins finally gets his chance to moonwalk
It’s uncharted territory for No Man’s Sky next month. But, that’s what Hello Games’ reviled-then-revered space exploration game is all about: Taking the uncharted and charting it.
In June, No Man’s Sky will join the Xbox Game Pass lineup. It’s the first time No Man’s Sky will be available as part of a subscription service, whether the Game Pass “Netflix for Games” type or the PS Plus “free games every month” model. It’s also one of the biggest games on Xbox Game Pass in two senses: No Man’s Sky has functionally-infinite worlds, and there are few non-first-party titles on Game Pass with more name recognition.
No Man’s Sky is approaching its fourth anniversary, a memory most everyone would do well to forget. It had the rockiest of launches, and that somehow still feels like an understatement. However, that’s not the relationship Xbox players have had with No Man’s Sky. The Xbox port released in 2018 alongside the “Next” update. By most accounts, that’s when No Man’s Sky got good, and it has only gotten better since then. Come next month, the solar system is gonna open up for 10 million new space cadets.
