No Man’s Sky: Beyond has finally received an ESRB rating, indicating that the expansion is still on course for a summer release
Much like the base game, this expansion has received a T for Teen rating from the board. You can view the official description down below, although it is the same as the base game with a few words taken out of it.
Rating Summary: This is a space-exploration game in which players assume the role of a planetary explorer on a quest to reach the center of the universe. From a first- or third-person perspective, players travel between systems to explore alien worlds for resources, to upgrade equipment, and to discover unique life forms. As players pilot spacecraft to different planets, they can engage in space combat against enemy ships and space pirates; combat is accompanied by laser fire and large explosions. While on the planet surface, players can use a variety of gun-like weapons and melee attacks to defeat alien creatures, human-like figures, and robots. Ground battles can be frenetic with frequent laser blasts, explosions, and screen-shaking effects.
No Man’s Sky: Beyond has yet to receive an official release date other than a Summer window launch. The expansion is set to bring a large number of multiplayer changes that Hello Games is dubbing as “No Man’s Sky Online”
No Man’s Sky Online includes a radical new social and multiplayer experience which empowers players everywhere in the universe to meet and play together. Whilst this brings people together like never before, and has many recognizable online elements, we don’t consider No Man’s Sky to be an MMO – it won’t require a subscription, won’t contain micro transactions, and will be free for all existing players.
Additionally PC and PS4 players can expect full VR support when it launches.
