No Man's Sky


 

As promised earlier this week, No Man’s Sky‘s next major update, Atlas Rises, is now live on PlayStation 4 and PC.

The update introduces a brand new story to the game that offers 30 hours of content and double the lore and interactions of the original game.

“In the Atlas Rises story, the fabric of existence is starting to falter,” the developer writes. “A mysterious new interdimensional race have appeared. Glitches are causing ancient portals to activate. Our story brings a new context, quest system and branching narrative to No Man’s Sky.”

As well as this new story, Atlas Rises also improves the variety and visual quality of planetary biomes, adds new exotic planets, and adds wealtheconomy, and conflict levels to star systems.

Other changes include new crashed freighters that can be scavenged for cargo, a new terrain editing tool, the addition of interstellar trading, and a mission system.

Finally, the update adds actual co-op to the game for up to 16 players. Other players will appear in the world as floating orbs and communication is possible via proximity-based voice chat. According to the developer “this is an important first step into the world of synchronous co-op in No Man’s Sky.”

No Man’s Sky is available now on PlayStation 4 and PC.
