No Man’s Sky is a game that failed to deliver its unparalleled promises upon launch, but through multiple updates, that original vision is slowly becoming a reality.
Hello Games’ next update “next” will be available next week, and it brings along with it multiplayer, star fleets, the option to switch between first and third-person viewpoints, and a visual overhaul that almost has the game looking as beautiful as it did when we first laid eyes on it.
In fact, the “Next” trailer is almost a shot for shot remake of the original 2013 reveal trailer.
Have we finally made it? Is No Man’s Sky now the game it always promised to be?
Patch notes include:
Team up with a small team of friends and explore the universe together, or be joined by random travelers. You can help friends to stay alive, or prey on others to survive. You can build tiny shelters or complex colonies that are shared for all players. Fight as a pirate or a wingman in epic space battles with friends and enemies. Race exocraft across weird alien terrains, creating race tracks and trails to share online. The character customisation allows you to personalise your appearance.
The game is fully playable in third or first person, both on-foot and in a ship. New Planetary rings and improved space visuals make space more beautiful than ever. Dramatically improved planetary terrain generation, ground textures, water and clouds bring the environment to life. There’s also significantly more detail added to ships, NPCs and buildings.
Unlimited Base Building
Bases can now be built anywhere on any planet. Base building has dramatically increased complexity and size limits and we’ve added hundreds of new base parts. You can also own multiple bases.
You can assemble and upgrade a fleet of frigates and command them from the bridge of your freighter. Send your fleet out to into the universe, or deploy them to help you as you explore a specific system. The improved freighter base building allows a truly custom capital ship. Invite your friends aboard and take on challenging multiplayer missions from the Galactic Commission Station on your bridge.
No Man’s Sky Next will be released next week on June 24 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Those who already own the game on PlayStation 4 and PC will get the updated content for free!
