Joint exploration shows other players as orbs.

The headline additions include a new 30-hour story campaign, procedurally-generated missions, and a limited form of multiplayer where you see other players as floating orbs.

No Man’s Sky developer Hello Games has now released the full update 1.3 patch notes, below, after this morning’s leak which pointed to multiplayer elements being added.

So, about that “joint exploration”. “Glitches in the simulation have begun to appear,” Hello Games said. These glitches allow up to 16 players to see each other, as represented by glowing orbs. You can also communicate via VOIP when in close proximity.

You will need to be in exactly the right place to meet each other, although the patch’s new portals feature will help a little with that.

It sounds like further multiplayer features are on the way, too. “While interaction with others is currently very limited, this is an important first step into the world of synchronous co-op in No Man’s Sky,” Hello stated.
