No Man’s Sky is Currently One of the Most Played Games on Steam

Before its eventual release, there was monumental hype surrounding No Man’s Sky. Once it released back in 2016, it was met with mild reviews and displeasure from fans. After two years, Developer Hello Games has added a lot of content to the game. Now, Sean Murray of Hello Games has revealed in a tweet that No Man’s Sky has become one of the most played games in the world this week.

While he doesn’t showcase any numbers for the PS4 or Xbox One, he does take a screenshot of the numbers on the current player count on Steam. At the time of the screenshot, No Man’s Sky is the sixth most played game with a peak of over 60,000 players playing yesterday. This news comes after the NEXT update was released for the game. In the new update, content is being added and improved upon but most notably is the addition of a “full multiplayer experience”. The update also marks the second anniversary for the game.

No Man’s Sky has been on a journey that has had some high and some lows. With this new update, it really shows how much the game has changed over these past two years. With that said, are you going to pick up a copy of No Man’s Sky if you haven’t already? Let us know your comments in the comments section below.

When I was a kid, I would play countless hours with my brother and father in games like Madden and NBA 2K. Today, whether it's a huge RPG to be explored or a small indie waiting to tell its own story, I'm ready to pick up the controller and play. For over a decade, I've watched how the videogame landscape has changed and evolved which has me excited for what is to come in the near future.
