While no exact date was given, Microsoft has announced that No Man’s Sky will be coming to the Xbox Game Pass subscription service in June. Hello Games’s infinite, procedurally generated space-exploration title didn’t fare too well when it launched back in 2016, as players complained of its repetitiveness and failure to incorporate marketed promises, but new updates such as Next and Beyond have reportedly improved the title dramatically, adding key features such as multiplayer, NPCs, base building, and even mechs.

“Beyond significantly improved the multiplayer experience with, among other additions, the introduction of the Anomaly, a multiplayer hub which can be summoned at any point in space and from which a huge array of cooperative missions can be embarked upon for in-game rewards,” boasted Hello Games programmer Sean Murray. “Since then, we’ve continued to provide regular free updates to the game including the Living Ship update in February and the Exo-Mech update in April. And there’s plenty more to come.”

Murray also revealed that a Windows 10 PC version of No Man’s Sky would be coming to the Microsoft Store. Over on the console side, Xbox owners who’ve been meaning to try the game can snag a copy for 50-percent off (24.99) over the next six days.
