The much-awaited game, No Man’s Sky, releases this August. If you were one of the users who worried that the title may require a PS Plus August 2016 membership, then you can put that worry to rest.

Various sources reported on Sony’s confirmation of users not needing any PS Plus membership to access No Man’s Sky‘s online functions. An Australian gaming website first reported on Sony’s statement. However, the tech giant clarified that although PS Plus membership is not a requirement, Internet connectivity still is.

According to Game Informer Australia, the vast universe of No Man’s Sky makes Sony and developer Hello Games consider it as a single-player adventure than a multiplayer one. Given the game’s huge world, both companies expect that encounter with other players is rare.

As per the requirement of Internet connectivity, Game Informer Australia shares that the online connection will enable gamers to register their discoveries to the universal atlas. According to the source, this function is tantamount to other games’ leaderboard.

Despite recent news on potential problems with copyright, it seems No Man’s Sky’s August launch will pursue. Fans don’t have to wait long as the title releases on August 9 for the Playstation 4. PC users, meanwhile, get the game on August 12.
