No Man’s Sky crossplay

Luckily for all you travelers out there, crossplay is a thing on every platform that No Man’s Sky is on, including PC, Xbox, and PlayStation. You might notice a certain hybrid console missing from that list, and there’s a good reason for that.

Does No Man’s Sky have crossplay on Nintendo Switch?

In a manner of speaking, it does, just not in the fun and exciting multiplayer way that the other platforms boast. On Switch, the best you can do is utilize the glyph system to give your pals coordinates to your base. You still can’t explore the galaxy together, but they can see your base or the strange planets you stumble across, at least.

How do I add No Man’s Sky friends?

Since you can play with your buddies on other platforms, you likely want to know how to add them as a friend in No Man’s Sky. Luckily, it’s a fairly simple process:

  • Start the game
  • Go to options
  • Select network
  • Add your friend
  • Enter their No Man’s Sky username
  • Send a friend invite!

Then to play together, simply start a session and invite them to join your game.
