No Man's Sky Update Adds Multiplayer, 30 Extra Hours of Story

12 August 2017

No Man's Sky's new story campaign will last around 30 hours, with a branching narrative and new context and quest systems.

From what we saw, Update 1.3, otherwise known as Atlas Rises, will feature an "overhauled central story line, portals, a new procedural mission system, trade improvements, system economies, joint exploration and more". There are also newly structured missions that offer subtle tasks the player can opt to perform, such as combat missions, delivery missions, and shipwreck salvage projects.

Atlas Rising also brings a new world with a greater variety and visual quality.

Remember that planet you earmarked as "New Earth" way back when No Man's Sky first came out? You can also use them to revisit previous planets, other bases or just randomly skip to a new world. The biggest of the updates launched today, and it's a bit of a big one. For its one year anniversary, Hello Games has released the third free update to the game, with the largest amount of new content to date. In this case, the changes are centered around planets and their biomes, with new "exotic planet types" popping up as you approach the galactic core. While interaction with others is now very limited, this is an important first step into the world of synchronous co-op in No Man's Sky.

Players near to each other will now be represented by mysterious floating orbs, which you can then explore alongside and communicate with over voice chat. Either way, Hello Games is going to have a lot of making up to do with the gaming community if it wants us to forgive them for No Man's Sky.

New maintenance interactions have been introduced for all harvesting equipment, bringing more depth to farming, mining, and harvesting.

The monoliths have their own hieroglyphics, though, and you'll have to figure out the language to master portal-based travel. Apparently there are more upgrades to be equipped as well to improve it and reap even more rewards. Plus a new HUD has been introduced to improve the experience of space combat. Just over 12 months since launch, the game awaits its imminent Atlas Rises update-and Hello Games has now announced what we can expect. Now that it has finally arrived, you will be participating in No Man's Sky's multiplayer?
