Starting tomorrow, No Man's Sky will allow PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC owners to play with one another. The addition of crossplay comes on the same day that No Man's Sky will join Game Pass on both Xbox One and PC.

Hello Games co-founder Sean Murray said the studio spent months secretly rebuilding No Man's Sky networking backend to make crossplay a possibility. "A tremendous amount of work has gone into this update and the underlying technology and systems," he said. "We've moved to an entirely new networking architecture, with more flexibility for the future, allowing players to play together regardless of platform."
