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.
