In an interview video with Gamespot, Hello Games’ programmer, Sean Murray, teased multiplayer mode among other tidbits.
Murray stated that,
“We don’t want to prescribe what people do. So we’re not going to say this is a game about discovering creatures, or killing dinosaurs, or flying a ship, or becoming a fighter, or a pirate or a bounty hunter,” said Murray.
“But loads of those things are possible, not everything is possible, and when we ship the game not everything will be possible, but this is a game I think we’ll be making for a while.”
He then added,
“[The weapon] you have is kind of like an upgradable multi-tool, which you can upgrade in various different ways depending on how you play. So if you’re mining, or attacking, scanning, exploring or whatever. We want that to feel futuristic and reasonable powerful, it kind of defines your character in that RPG way.
“And then your suit can be upgraded to have more armour, or health perhaps, or to survive longer under water or in a toxic environment or whatever. There are things like that the core gamers are used to.”
As far as multiplayer mode, Murray hinted that,
“There is this thing, which I’m not going to talk about now, that is a plan for multiplayer, for people to have a more traditional multiplayer experience within the game. And that’s something we’ll deal with further down the line that is exciting, but that’s not something that’s core to the game now.”
