When the PS VR2 headset is released, No Man’s Sky will be available

Hello Games has announced that its procedurally-generated space exploration game No Man’s Sky will receive a new update to support PlayStation’s upcoming VR2 technology, which will be made available to all players for free on February 22, 2023, the same day that PS VR2 is released. No Man’s Sky has garnered a lot of accolades over the years due to the team’s devotion to releasing free content updates, and it doesn’t seem like they’re going to stop anytime soon.

Hello Games seems to be convinced that No Man’s Sky will bring out the best in new technologies. Earlier this year, the developers confirmed their intention to support the new technology with the release of a new trailer for a PlayStation VR2 update for the game, though questions were raised due to a typo on the PlayStation Store page. The free upgrade was supposed to be released in “February 2022,” which is plainly no longer conceivable unless PlayStation’s VR2 also has time-travel capability. When Eurogamer contacted Hello Games about the release date, it was verified that it was a mistake, with the developers explaining that the update would be released on February 22, 2023.

For the time being, it is unknown whether this new feature will be part of a larger content update for the game, but many fans are speculating that No Man’s Sky will receive another batch of new features in the first few months of 2023, given the developers’ track record of delivering new content every few months. Aficionados of PlayStation VR2 should expect to pay $549 for the gear, while there are package deals available that may be of interest to certain PlayStation fans.

While the PlayStation VR2 seems to be a fantastic hardware update, it remains to be seen how popular it will be among No Man’s Sky fans. The high cost of the technology will likely keep it out of reach for many players, and the game’s current virtual reality version seems to be utilised mainly by a small number of enthusiasts at the moment. Regardless, Hello Games’ eagerness to include new technology in No Man’s Sky will definitely be welcomed by gamers anxious to get their hands on VR2 in February.
