According to Steam, No Man’s Sky is a single-player game, with the PlayStation Store adding that online play is optional.

It’s still unclear how big the No Man’s Sky digital download will be, but the retail version is 6GB on disc.

Since No Man’s Sky is out in just over two weeks on August 9 in North America and August 10 in Europe, expect the final Pillar trailer, Survive, to be released very soon.
