We already knew that No Man's Sky's Beyond update would be landing on August 14, and now we have a launch trailer ahead of release, showing you what's coming with the free update.

This was shared by Hello Games' Sean Murray on the PlayStation Blog, where he gave us a bit of an insight about the journey to get to this point.

"Nearly eight years ago, with a love of sci-fi, we started writing the very first lines of code on what would become No Man's Sky. It was always an innovative and ambitious game, but over the three years since release it has become broad and deep in a way few games are," he said.

"When we sat down to write those first lines of code I could never have imagined the kind of trailer we just recorded. A multiplayer game, with base building, trading, space combat, giant mechs, economies, freighters, first person, third person, and so much more, all set in a beautiful procedural universe."

Murray told us about the Nexus as well, which is a shared social space you can see in the trailer below, letting you show off your ship, outfit, and base to strangers and friends alike. This is just one facet of the update though, as VR is another massive element that changes the way you play.

Do you like the Nexus?
