According to Murray and Hello Games, the update will bring significantly more populated terrain on planets, larger and more complex base building possibilities, and the ability to transfer your save, as well as the chance to play the game in 4K at 60fps on consoles.

Hello Games is promising crossplay with all other platforms, and upgrades are free from PS4 to PS5 as well as from Xbox One to Xbox Series X/S.

Hello Games has announced the next update for No Man's Sky and that update is called the Next Generation.

No Man's Sky: Next Generation is set to come out "in a couple of weeks' time", and should coincide nicely with those new toys you've likely been hearing about. They'll also be able to play No Man's Sky with PlayStation VR via backward compatibility. It means you can play everything from Conker: Live and Reloaded all the way through to Forza Horizon 4 when you boot up your new Xbox Series console on November 10.

With the number of cases in B.C. on the rise, the province has further extended the state of emergency to November 10. In total, 21 long-term care or assisted-living facilities and two acute-care facilities have active outbreaks.

Sony has somewhat recently revealed that the PlayStation 5 will be compatible with a vast majority of the titles now available on PlayStation 4. Additionally, No Man's Sky will support 3D audio on the PS5, increasing positional audio accuracy.

No Man's Sky players can also expect super-fast load times, thanks to next-gen consoles' standard SSDs. Console players are expected to see the most significant changes in comparison to the current PS4 and Xbox One release, while PC players - particularly those playing on "Ultra" settings - will also see some improvements in overall visual fidelity.

You can catch the full patch notes on the game's website if you're keen to find out what the console folk are getting.
