Thanks to the Xbox Game Pass, over a million new players have joined No Man's Sky over the past few days. In mid-June, the title for Xbox One and the PC was added to the offer. The Desolation update has also been released recently, bringing randomly generated space freighters into the game.
Almost a month ago, No Man's Sky was added to the Xbox Game Pass. And according to Sean Murray (studio director of Hello Games), this should have led to a significant increase in players. In an article on the Desolation Update, the maker revealed that over a million new players have taken a look at No Man's Sky. All that since the title for Xbox One and PC is available in the Xbox Game Pass.
Together with the recently released cross-play update, the current number of players from No Man's Sky should be at a very high level again. Sean Murray did not give exact values here. We have included the new trailer for the already available desolation update below. With the new patch, players can now explore abandoned space freighters whose interior is always randomly generated. As a reward for the dangerous tour, there are also valuable items. You either meet the freighters during your trips or you can purchase special coordinates from a scrap dealer.
