One of the most highly-anticipated, controversial games of the past decade was the gorgeous “No Man’s Sky.”

Updates released over the subsequent months helped bolster the game’s list of activities, but this week’s “Next” update is the biggest yet. It adds the much-requested multiplayer — a feature that was originally announced for the game that disappeared before launch.
