11 Things That Have Changed In No Man’s Sky Since Launch

The next huge update to No Man’s Sky is about to hit all platforms at the end of the month on July 24th. We do know that No Man’s Sky: NEXT will be a full multiplayer experience that opens up the nearly infinite worlds to multiple players at once along with a number of other improvements. Details are still forthcoming on what exactly No Man’s Sky: NEXT entails but publisher 505 Games did release a video that went through 11 huge improvements that have to NMS since its launch in 2016.

Here are 6 of the 100s of updates that have been made to No Man’s Sky that I find the most interesting: 

  • Updates that make deploying camps viable.  These included deployable equipment, automatic harvesting, communication terminals and a signal scanner that can find mineral deposits. 
  • Ability for players to find uninhabited bases to use as their brand-new home base. Bases come in a modular structure allowing for decorations and other cosmetics.  
  • Purchasable freighters that players can use to traverse the galaxy. Freighters are able to transport good in bulk making trading a lot easier. 
  • A regenerating galaxy – loot, functioning economy and intra-system conflicts are able to regenerate across the galaxy. New technologies allow players to apply sorting filters to the galaxy map. 
  • While exploring the vast number of available worlds you might just the wreckage of a crashed freighter. Using terrain manipulator explorers can find valuable salvage and complete guild missions. 
  • Improved mission log – Mission tracking, the ability to view pending missions and an in-game mission guide was added with the Atlas Rising update. 

No Man’s Sky originally launched on August 6th 2016 and since then has had three major updates – The Foundation Update, The Pathfinder Update and The Atlas Rising Update in the 2 years that have followed.  With the upcoming July 24th of No Man’s Sky: NEXT players on Xbox One will be able to enter the infinitely explorable space simulation.
