Hello Games No Man?s Sky has been rumored to be experiencing some glitches after its PS4 release. One of the most recent ones includes two players being on the same place at the same time but were not able to bump into each other. Why is that?
Developer Sean Murray previously stated that chances of crossing paths in the game is almost zero because of the huge size of the galaxy. However, with the recent case of two players landing on the same place at the same time, it is unclear why they failed to see each other despite of their best efforts.
A player named TheGalacticCactus discovered that a certain player, Psktokat, also landed on the same planet where he is. After knowing the unique situation, he immediately contacted the gamer to plan a meet-up. But, to their surprise, they never really crossed paths. As a result, gamers around the world are bummed thinking the video game has some glitches.
Aside from that, the encounter suggests that there is no multiplayer in No Man?s Sky, a thing that developer Sean Murray has already stressed out. In a recent tweet, he said, ?To be super clear – No Man?s Sky is not a multiplayer game. Please don?t go in looking for that experience.?
Although Murray mentioned that the game is not a multiplayer game, he noted that it has several online features and easter eggs so gamers can know they are playing in the same universe, and it is going to be ?cool moments.? But still, it is not clear why the two players did not see each other even when they are on the same place at the same time.
That being the case, there are speculations that gamers are really not connected to each other and they are not on the same universe. Another theory is that each player has their own galaxy, which can look similar to the other?s, but are not connected to one another. If that would be true, that would explain why the two gamers did not cross paths on the same planet as they have two identical regions, which are actually not the same.
As of now, what is certain is that the game is designed to be played alone as gamers explore different universes. Polygon reported that they have reached out to Hello Games why the two players were not able to connect, but the gaming company has not released a statement yet.
