    See the new No Man’s Sky update, The Abyss, in action ahead of this week’s launch
    New aquatic ships to pilot, missions to tackle, and wrecks to explore in new free expansion


    Hello everyone! A new free update is releasing this week for all No Man’s Sky players. We’ve called it The Abyss, because it’s a seasonal update and reimagines underwater gameplay focusing on some of the scarier elements of No Man’s Sky.

    No Man’s Sky NEXT launched just a couple of months ago. We have been absolutely overwhelmed by the positive response. We are excited to be on this journey with you.

    We have been adding new free content, community missions and improvements to No Man’s Sky every week. From small features like allowing players to customise body shape, to large gameplay additions like the Pilgrim motorbike, and companion features such as addition of discovery leaderboards to the Galactic Atlas, allowing the community to track progress between factions.

    Whilst we want to continue to do this, we are also still releasing major titled updates, starting with The Abyss.



    The Abyss introduces aquatic environments with over 5 times more variety, varied creature behaviours, improved underwater visuals and much more.

    Here’s some things you might notice from the trailer…

    Flora and fauna
    The variety and visual quality of underwater biomes has been greatly improved. Experience rare exotic aquatic biomes as you explore new depths.

    Underwater creatures have become more frequent, and more interesting. Aquatic life inhabits the full depth of the ocean, and unique terrifying creatures can be encountered on the ocean floor.

    Aquatic missions
    A new story, The Dreams of the Deep, brings a new context to the depths and a dark narrative to No Man’s Sky. Discover the fate of a troubled crew stranded from a freighter crash by the rising tides, or explore underwater ruins to uncover the tale of a lost soul trapped deep beneath the waves.

    Sunken wrecks
    Investigate sunken ruins and find ancient treasures or dive to submerged buildings to find remnants of their lost occupants. Discover and scavenge lost cargo from gigantic freighter wrecks. Use the terrain manipulator to excavate treasures buried in the nearby ocean floor. Find and repair rare crashed star ships to restore them from the seabed to the skies.

    Submarine
    Master the depths of planets using a new Exocraft, the Nautilon. This submersible vehicle give new meaning to underwater navigation, combat and mining – and can be summoned to any ocean on the planet, as well as docked at underwater buildings. Upgrade your submersible with installable Submarine Technology and customise the Nautilon to stand out from your fellow explorers.

    Submersible building modules
    Over a dozen new base parts have been added to unlock more creative possibilities underwater. Construct the new Marine Shelter for brief respite from the oceanic pressure, and use its protection to reach new depths. New glass corridors, viewing bays and multistory submersible view domes provide travellers the perfect view of the surrounding ocean. Bring aquatic life into your habitat with a decorative indoor Aquarium.

    We hope you enjoy this and what follows – and we look forward to meeting you out there! Our journey continues.

    New No Man’s Sky trailer details the new Visions expansion, out tomorrow on PS4
    New creatures and artifacts to discover and a global community mission to partake in

    Hello everyone! Visions is a new free update releasing tomorrow for all No Man’s Sky players. We’ve called it Visions, because it re-imagines our universe, introducing new environmental biomes, new planet types, more colourful worlds, new fauna and flora, archaeology, salvaging, and much more…

    Just last month we launched The Abyss, which completely changed underwater in No Man’s Sky. We are excited to now make the planet surface far more interesting and varied to explore.



    Some new features you might notice in Visions…

    New worlds
    The variety and diversity of planet surfaces has been greatly improved. Millions of previously dead planets have now burst into life, creating a weirder, more surprising universe to explore.

    Mysterious artifacts can be found on alien planets, which can be collected as mementos and displayed as trophies in your planetary base.

    Bizarre creatures
    Strange new creatures can be found among the stars, never before discovered by another traveller. Predatory fauna protect their planets from interlopers, with some creatures even masquerading as ordinary minerals. Deadly flora now has much more variety, with carnivorous trap plants and bloated gas flora waiting to snare the unwary and reward the cautious.

    More to discover
    With more varied planets comes more reasons to explore. Unleash your inner archeologist and search the galaxy for planets containing the ancient bones of alien lifeforms.Unearth the long-forgotten remains of fallen satellites and scrap them for salvagable parts, but risk drawing the attention of new, challenging, corrupted sentinel drones.
    Those who endure the hazardous storms that blast extreme planets can seek out precious new crystal treasures that only light up during the worst weather.

    [​IMG]

    More variety
    The universe has become more alien, vibrant and exciting to explore. New shades of sky, grass, and water enable more unique worlds and a more diverse set of science fiction aesthetics. Atmospherics and skies have been improved and rainbows have been added to the range of weather effects.

    Global community missions
    A new Community Research mission allows explorers to share progress and work towards a common goal. Discover the Visions universe together to unlock the new Eye of the Korvax helmet, as well as well as new emotes, building parts and a range of fireworks to celebrate any occasion.

    We hope you enjoy this and what follows – and we look forward to meeting you out there! Our journey continues.

    I haven't touched this since I got platinum in "vanilla".
    Anyone played it after the big patches, is it worth reinstalling again after I'm done in the Wild West?
