As you may have seen, No Man’s Sky is back in the spotlight thanks to this week’s massive NEXT multiplayer update.
However, not all players are rejoicing. Specifically, those who own the game through GOG.com discovered that this version of the game won’t be activating its multiplayer mode until later this year due to the effort of bringing multiplayer online across several platforms.
What could have been a huge player riot over this segregation and delay was deftly dealt with by GOG. The virtual games reseller announced that while Hello Games is not going to offer refunds due to the delay, GOG went ahead and authorized an unrestricted refund policy for anyone who wants it from now through July 29th. The company did this even though No Man’s Sky is two-years-old at this point.
“Although Hello Games chose not to offer refunds over missing game content to our users and instead promised to bring the missing multiplayer content later this year, we understand that some of you might not be willing to wait. For this reason, entirely at GOG’s own cost, we’re offering an extended refund policy for all owners of No Man’s Sky. Even if your purchase is no longer covered by the 30-Day Money Back Guarantee, you can contact our customer support team and we’ll issue a refund in wallet funds.”
