New No Man's Sky Update Includes Multiplayer Mode

Hello Games

When No Man's Sky was first announced, one of the most tantalizing promises Sean Murray made was that players would all inhabit the same universe, but the odds of them ever actually meeting each other were nearly non-existent. For instance, the upcoming update will supposedly flesh out the game's bare bones story by adding plot elements to the middle sections of the experience.

Earlier this week, Hello Games announced a brand new update that is heading to No Man's Sky named Atlas Rises.

Other features being touted are the additions of wealth, economy and conflict levels to star systems, an overhauled Galaxy map, the ability to install "Galactic technology" to filter the map by lifeform, wealth and economy, and an improved waypoint system.

The game's developer, Hello Games, named this update "Atlas Rises", and it will zoom in on the improvements made to the game's central story. Plus improved graphics for the entire game with more variety and visual quality of planetary biomes and the addition of the terrain manipulator to excavate buried resources in the region. No Man's Sky Update 1.3 also introduces new Mission System which will grant players new and unique tasks. New NPC guilds will also be introduced. Ancient portals are also starting to activate.

New lore and interactions have been added too, fleshing out the truth behind the original mysteries including the Abandoned Building logs, the World of Glass, the Sentinels, the Redemption of the Gek and the meaning of 16. Low flight and improved flight control make in-atmosphere dog fighting more likely and exciting. Instead, it was a lovely universe with potential for a fun game to take place in it, released far too early with far too many unrealistic expectations. At some point in the future, we'll see synchronous co-op within No Man's Sky, and this is the first step toward that.

"Visualised by unusual floating orbs, up to 16 players can see and communicate with one another, and explore the universe together", Hello Games explains on its website.
