Multiplayer in 'No Man's Sky' gets fans' hopes up all over again

Multiplayer in 'No Man's Sky' gets fans' hopes up all over again

For the one year anniversary since its controversial release last year, the Atlas Rises 1.3 update is rolling out today with more features than ever before to renew your interest in the galactic exploration game. One of the biggest disappointments regarding No Man's Sky at launch was the lack of a cohesive, compelling story, but Hello Games is looking to rectify that misstep a year later. Up to 16 players, visualized by unusual floating orbs, can communicate and explore the universe together. Players can see and communicate with each other using VOIP, but otherwise cannot interact directly.

You'll need to be in exactly the right places for this to happen however, so don't expect just to bump into people on the fly. No Man's Sky has been adding more ways for players to make permanent marks on the world via updates like base sharing and leaving messages for each other, but now you can make a literal mark. The number of lore and interactions have been doubled.

The new story concerns some new interdimensional race that developer Hello Games wants players to find the out the truth behind.

Other additions will include crashed freighters to loot, terrain editing, and the ability to summon your ship if you get a little lost.

Now may be a good time to pop No Man's Sky back into your console, if you didn't already trade the game in.

The variety and visual quality of planetary biomes has been improved.

Taylor Swift Civil Trial a Hot Ticket in Denver
According to Taylor , Mueller reached up under her skirt and grabbed her a** when she was posing for photos. Lawyers for Swift , who countersued David Mueller , now will have their turn to call witnesses.

No Man's Sky's photo mode now supports depth of field. No Man's Sky Update 1.3 also introduces new Mission System which will grant players new and unique tasks.

While much of the leaked information was expected based on Murray's previous email to fans, the discovery of a patch notes section titled "Joint Exploration" suggests that multiplayer gameplay is finally being added to the title. It's been re-calibrated to give you more info and better rewards for scanning everything you see.

The universe in No Man's Sky is coming to life with more interactive play. Now, thanks to portals making traveling cross-galactic, players can be joined with small blue orbs of others to explore and play the game.

Needless to say, that's hardly an ideal multiplayer experience for those who have stuck with a game that fell well short of expectations.

The full details (if you can call them that) of the update are on the official site.
