No Man's Sky: Does it have crossplay and crossave?

 We'll tell you if No Man's Sky has built-in cross-play features for its multiple platforms and if it also has cross-progression for your save data.

No Man's Sky: Does it have crossplay and crossave?

Two of the most important functions in any online game today that players want are crossplay and crossave, that is, cross-platform cross-play and cross-progress to continue the game no matter what system we play from. In the case of No Man's Sky, if you've come this far it's probably because you're wondering the same thing about Hello Games' mammoth work of science fiction. Well, below we have prepared this entry in our guide to answer these questions. Pay attention...

Does it have crossplay?

The answer is yes, No Man's Sky has officially confirmed crossplay between all its platforms since 2020. That is, any player can enjoy cross-play games from all these platforms:

  • PC
  • Playstation 4
  • PlayStation 5
  • Xbox One
  • Xbox Series X|S
  • nintendo switch

Crossplay, also known as cross-platform play, offers us the opportunity to play multiplayer with other users regardless of the platform each one uses; For example, if you are playing on PS4 and a friend of yours is playing on PC, you can still play games of No Man's Sky together. The same occurs for the rest of the possible cases from any other platform on which the video game is available. And yes, this also includes crossplay between consoles of different generations.

At first, No Man's Sky did not have crossplay, but since an update in June 2020, this changed forever. So now players can enjoy this great feature.

How to activate or deactivate crossplay?

To activate or deactivate cross-platform crossplay in No Man's Sky follow these steps:

  • From the main menu of the game, load your game in which you want to enjoy crossplay.
  • Once in the game, open the "Options" menu and access the "Network" section.
  • In this section, go down the list to the "Multiplatform" box (the one at the bottom).
  • Here you can decide whether to set this option to "On" or "Off".

Remember that it is advisable to have the crossplay function activated to improve the matchmaking of games. Disabling cross-play may result in inconvenience when searching for matches or playing with your friends. Without crossplay, you will only be able to play with other players who are on the same platform as you (and who have also disabled this function).

Do you have crossave?

  • Currently, No Man's Sky does not feature cross-progression between its features (also called crossave ).
At the time of writing, cross-platform saving or cross-progress is not available between PC and consoles for any version of No Man's Sky and is not expected to be a feature that will be included later via a update.

Unfortunately, therefore, this means that our games of No Man's Sky are independent on each platform on which we play and we cannot share all the unlocks , missions, ships and more that we have in our account between different platforms. Keep this in mind if you were planning to purchase the game on more than one platform...
