Giblets: You won’t need a PlayStation Plus sub to play No Man’s Sky on PS4
Tarryn van der Byl·
No Man’s Sky features more than 18 quintillion planets. That’s a lot of planets. It’s so many planets, in fact, that there’s more than one for everybody on our planet. More than ten, even. Or a hundred. LOADS more. I’d work out exactly how many, but I can’t even input that many zeroes on my calculator. The point is, you’re probably not ever going to encounter another person in the game, because why would you? They’re on a different planet. In a different solar system. In a different galaxy. In an entirely different space-time continuum. Actually, I made up the last one, but that’s kind of how lag works.
Anyway, although the game technically supports some asynchronous multiplayer features, it’s listed as a single-player game on Steam and the PlayStation Store. And as such, “PS Plus won’t be a requirement to play online,” a Sony representative has confirmed with Game Informer. “However you will need to connected to the internet for your discoveries to register with the universal atlas.”
