No Man's Sky Atlas Rises update brings some significant changes

No Man's Sky may finally get co-op exploration and story overhaul in next update

One of the biggest issues many had with No Man's Sky on release was the lack of multiplayer/co-op, particularly since we were told before release that players would be able to encounter each other in-game. When we first heard about Atlas Rises, Hello Games chief Sean Murray spoke only briefly and in general terms about what it will include.

Atlas Rises adds some much-wanted features to No Man's Sky.

Earlier this week, we heard that No Man's Sky would be getting a big free expansion this week called "Atlas Rises". That Hello Games continue to support No Man's Sky in this fashion can only be seen as a positive, given how fascinating the game was at the concept stage. The new update will double the lore and interactions of the existing game and allow players to discover the truth behind the Abandoned Building logs, the World of Glass, the Sentinels, the Redemption of the Gek, and the meaning of sixteen... 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.

Of carrying a third child herself, the 36 year old previously said: "The doctors definitely say it's too unsafe for me to carry". But I also love her having such a childhood life'. "One day, whatever she wants to do, I'll support that no matter what it is".

No Man's Sky has finally received its first limited online multiplayer and while the developers have confirmed that it is limited to 16 players at a time, its interactivity hasn't been revealed in detail leaving it up for the player themselves to determine how they can interact with each other. 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 outcome to do? If you've been looking for a reason to jump back into the controversial universe simulator, there are about a dozen in the new Altas Rises update.

At roughly 1 am United Kingdom, a password protected page was put up on the No Man's Sky website containing the 1.3 Patch Notes.

Hello Games is quick to stress that interaction is "currently very limited", although you can use VOIP chat to communicated with nearby explorers. The update has already gone live on both PlayStation 4 and PC, so if you're a lapsed No Man's Sky veteran, be sure to give it a look.
