Xbox Game Pass Will Get No Man's Sky Tomorrow

The space exploration game is expanding in June with a release in the Xbox games subscription service.


Hello Games' space exploration title No Man's Sky will be one of the latest additions to the growing catalogue of games available through the Xbox Game Pass subscription service. Launching on the Xbox One version of the service opens up a huge audience for No Man's Sky, as the subscription service has 10 million subscribers and counting. It will be out tomorrow, June 11, through the service. The update coincides with the launch of cross-play support across PS4, Xbox One, and PC, and even more games have been announced for Xbox Game Pass.

Additionally, Hello Games confirmed that No Man's Sky will be released on the Windows PC store. The game was already available on Steam, but this is the first time it'll be available on Microsoft's own store. It will be out the same time as the game's launch on Game Pass.

No Man's Sky developer Hello Games is planning to support the game with even more ambitious expansions and updates to come in 2020.

The game has undergone radical changes since its initial launch several years ago, including a multiplayer mode and major overhauls to inventory systems and even base-building.

The Xbox Game Pass catalog has more than 100 titles, including Red Dead Redemption 2, NBA 2K20, and Halo: The Master Chief Collection. The library also includes all of Microsoft's first-party new releases, so subscribers can get Halo Infinite later this year at no extra cost.

Xbox Game Pass costs $10 USD/month or $15 USD/month for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate that bundles Game Pass with Xbox Live Gold. Microsoft is currently offering a nice discount on the subscription cost, letting you get your first month for only $1 USD.

Xbox Game Pass is a promising subscription service, but some developers are worried that it's eroding the value of games--check out GameSpot's editorial here to learn more.
