Hello Games have discounted No Man’s Sky a whole 50% on both the PSN store for PS4 and Steam for PC just one week before No Man’s Sky: Beyond releases, including No Man’s Sky VR support.
The Steam Summer Sale wasn’t that long ago, but No Man’s Sky is already on sale again leading up to its big relaunch with No Man’s Sky: Beyond on August 14th. The new update is dropping entirely for free and includes a revamped Online infrastructure and, for the first time ever, full VR support on both PSVR and PC VR.
And notably the great thing about No Man’s Sky VR support is that it doesn’t require a separate purchase and is entirely part of the base game. That’s not the case for Skyrim VR, Fallout 4 VR, Borderlands 2 VR, and lots of other previously non-VR games that have been ported over. Plus, in No Man’s Sky VR, everyone plays in the same universe — VR or otherwise.
Needless to say, this is a big title for the VR market. For many sci-fi fans out there exploring the far reaches of spaces, terraforming planets, creating vast bases, and cataloging alien life is a fantasy ever since first watching Star Trek. Sean Murray of Hello Games describes No Man’s Sky VR as “the perfect kind of sci-fi dream” and after playing it for myself, it’s hard to disagree.
No Man’s Sky: Beyond, including free No Man’s Sky VR support, launches on August 14th. Starting today through August 21st you can buy the game on Steam for $29.99 or on PSN for $24.99. Then when Beyond hits, you’ll get VR support for free.
