Honestly, the only thing multiplayer would bring to the game is the ability to only be bored, instead of bored and alone.
Fear not, for now you can also feel miserable after seeing your work simply disappear in an orderly manner:
No Man's Sky is all about exploration and discovery. So you can imagine how frustrating it would be to learn that all the effort you put into cataloging the flora and fauna you've run across on your intergalactic journey was for naught. Yet that seems to be what's happening, according to this Reddit thread, where multiple users are claiming that the names they'd given to plants and animals have been wiped, and their discoveries reset.
“The next day, browsed the list again. The planet was wiped clean and so were a couple more,” he wrote. “Just to be clear enough, discoveries are being erased in chronological order. First system, second system and so on. It's not random. It's a pattern, starting from your very first discoveries.”
I've reached out to Hello Games to ask whether these problems are the result of server glitches, an intentional design choice, or something else entirely, and will update if and when I receive a reply.
This is one article I will be waiting to see if it's ever updated with an answer.
