It's not a bug, it's not rare, it's impossible, it's not just those two people that tried to meet up on Twitch, every attempt since then has failed too, not to mention other factors that have confirmed you cannot, in the current version of the game, meet or see other players in any form beyond seeing what they have named stuff.immortalfrieza said:Nothing is more clear than "it will rarely if ever happen." You can't use two players attempting to meet up as a barometer for the entire concept, especially since one of them wasn't even on the server at the time, at most it was a bug. Murray couldn't possibly have made it any more clear that No Man's Sky is a single player game and always has been designed as such, but people decided to ignore this and then whine when it turned out NMS wasn't a multiplayer game as they had expected.EternallyBored said:I'm not watching a 3 hour video, let's address the shorter one specifically pointing out potential contradictions.
So the line I quoted in the previous post, what is being misunderstood here? Where is the "clear" answer you think seems to exist, because I watched the colbert interview when it aired, nothing about that answer strikes me as being clear compared to the actual game.
Once again, "Can you run into other people, other players on the game?"
"Yes, but the chances of that are incredibly rare, just because of the size of what we are building"'
The answer is not yes, its no by any reasonable definition, this is a not a clear answer.
Any PS4 game where you could actually meet another player, even if it's only seeing each other in passing like Journey, would require PS plus, this would be noted on physical copies of the game, it's not. The steam edition has been pulled apart by modders, and no online net code exists that would facilitate actually meeting or seeing other players. So as of right now, unless they patch it in, it is not "rare", it is impossible.
