No Man's Sky Atlas Rises update released today

No Man's Sky

Is No Man's Sky actually what one might call a video game now, or is it still a unusual space sandbox with nothing of effect to do?

It's been one year since No Man's Sky first came out, and Hello Games has been quietly working on a big update meant to address some of the biggest complaints regarding the game (of which there were many).

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

Two Trains Collide in Egypt Leaving at Least 28 Dead, 80 Injured
In 2016, a train derailed in south of Cairo, killing five people, and injuring 27 people in the al-Ayat area. And 373 people lost their lives when a fire ripped through a packed train south of the capital in 2002.

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.

One year later, No Man's Sky is a better game but still lacks magic and mystery, so said our Chris earlier this week after returning to the open world space exploration sim. Also, the update has begun rolling out, so be sure to check for an update on whichever platform you play No Man's Sky on to start downloading. Players will also discover crashed freighters, be able to use the terrain manipulator to discover resources and complete salvage missions for Guild rewards. Ancient portals can now be activated too, allowing players to revisit previous planets, others bases or jump randomly to new worlds. Developer Hello Games is also promising to streamline travel, improve the game's graphics, add new aliens and ships, and even incorporate some basic multiplayer elements. This includes a communicator, which can be used to advance mission steps, or even to hail pirates before they attack. Low flight and improved flight control make in-atmosphere dog fighting more likely and exciting. Up to 16 players can see and communicate with each other as they explore the unknown.

Most importantly though, comes the long-awaited addition of multiplayer to the game. 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 and VOIP (Voice over IP) allows proximity based voice chat with other nearby explorers.
