No Man's Sky Updates Will Get Even More Ambitious In 2020

With large additions over the last five months, Hello Games is teasing even more content for No Man's Sky this year.

3 Comments

No Man's Sky has been receiving numerous free content updates over the past few months, adding features like living ships, colossal exo mechs, and even a full audio creation suite to the space-explorer. In many ways, it no longer resembles the game released back in 2016, which was criticized for its shallow gameplay and uninteresting progression.

Developer Hello Games is continuing to tinker with its large procedurally-generated game, saying in its latest development update that it's happy with the amount of content it has pushed out in the last five months. "Beginning with Synthesis, we planned to release more regularly, and it’s encouraging to look back on how this has unfolded so far," reads the post, before detailing what features players look forward to in the coming weeks.

First up, players can obtain a new version of the standard Exosuit Backpack, with a new visual update that harkens back to some of the earliest weeks in No Man's Sky. Additionally, the Blistering Mushroom, Watchful Protrusion, and Tentacle Spire toxic plants are now purchasable at the Quiksilver Bot's shop, which you can use to spruce up your habitable bases and living spaces.

You can also look forward to new weekend missions, with the post suggesting that players talk to Iteration: Ariadne aboard the Space Anomaly this weekend to find out more. There's more reality breaching hijinks across the galaxy that needs sorting out.

As for the future, Hello Games mentions that the team is settled into its new remote working environment, and that players can expect more "ambitious additions to the universe" in the coming months. Hello Games is also working on a new smaller narrative adventure game called The Last Campfire, which launches later in 2020.

Is this thing worth buying now? I've been put off by the survival elements; I just wanna zip around planets and have fun, not worry about dying every two minutes....

@attirex: I recommend going on YouTube and watching Internet Historians video. It's a VERY good video, it will help you decide and give you good insight on the different ideals companies have. Unlike fallout 76, this game become a titan and rose from the brink of death through hard work and action instead of promises.

Having ships that multiple players can travel in is at the top of my list. A gunner seat or a co-pilot or a back area for lab work or.....anything... So often travelling between planets while playing coop feels like "welp, see ya in 5 mins somewhere on that planet.....oops gotta stop for fuel make that 10 mins". I want to be able to travel as a group
