Community Download is a weekly discussion-focused articles series published (usually) every Monday in which we pose a single, core question to you all, our readers, in the spirit of fostering discussion and debate. For today, we want to know if you think the release of No Man’s Sky VR support in the Beyond update is the most important VR game yet?
On August 14 when the Beyond Update releases, No Man’s Sky VR support will become a reality. It’s something we fantasized about three years ago when the sci-fi epic first released on PS4 and now, over half a dozen game-changing updates later, it’s finally about to be here. We’ve played it and we can’t wait to sink our teeth into it more.
Sean Murray has said that over one million current owners of the game already have a VR headset which should immediately make it one of the most-owned VR games out there. When you combine that with the fact that all VR players will co-exist in the same universe as all the non-VR players, it starts to paint a staggering picture of just how massive this game is going to be.
We already asked what you plan to do first when No Man’s Sky: Beyond releases, so, we now pose the following question: Is No Man’s Sky VR the most important VR game to date? We asked this question about Firewall Zero Hour last year, a game we liked so much we awarded it Game of the Year and it’s since gone on toe receive tons of updates and support — we hope No Man’s Sky VR is just as good, if not better.
