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


Quote:
A a message from developer Hello Games’ Sean Murray

Hello everyone – it’s an exciting and super busy month for Hello Games and No Man’s Sky as we have our massive NEXT update launching across all platforms on July 24, and for the first time on Xbox One!

We will be sharing more details about the new content in the run up to launch. But a question we get asked all the time is ‘what’s changed in No Man’s Sky?’, so our friends at 505 Games have made a handy vid “11 Things That Have Changed in No Man’s Sky Since Launch” to remind everybody about the many many things that have changed… since launch.

There are a lot more than 11, in fact there are 100’s as you can see in the lists here: Foundation Update - Pathfinder Update - Atlas Rise Update

But we chose our favourite 11 as the video would go on for far too long...

Changes we’ve highlighted include a regenerated universe, newly opened portal stargates, new biomes, deeper trading, exocraft for advanced exploration, new modes (Survival / Permadeath / Creative), base building, new missions/story, terrain manipulation, crashed / interstellar freighters, and deeper space combat.

Thanks so much,

Sean

The game is quite different from what it was at launch. It's apparently quite good, even.

I'm not going back to it anytime soon...but at least they were seemingly able to fix their mistakes.

I feel they need to do a No Man's Sky 2: Electric BoogaLoo release or something to really get the point across that it's been updated in big ways.

That's cool, It's just too bad they put such a bad taste in my mouth the first time around. I just have no desire to reinstall it.

I'm in the exact same boat.

It really doesn't matter what they do or what they did. The internet is filled with just hate, so there's no way ANYTHING they did was going to appease the angry comments warriors and their interwebz megaphone.

I honestly don't know why devs even bother doing anything any more. All there is is hate. I know if I were a dev I wouldn't. Doesn't seem worth it.

After all the hype, and fail, and patching, and updating...

I think it's silly that they have to do a "11 Things That Have Changed Since Launch Trailer".

May as well have named the trailer "This game isn't garbage anymore, we swear! Please come back!"

And maybe that's true - that the game is improved. But it's a tough sell. Especially in gaming. There's always the next amazing game to play. Unless you're a fanatic about something, it's tough to go back and visit from a time ago. Limited time coupled with competition from the games you are already playing coupled with competition for the next big game right around the corner. Especially when the first experience was mediocre at best.

I think, in large, the ship has sailed on this one. And really it's their fault. They should have made the full and complete "vision" first, then released.

It's the same with movies nowadays. Do you want the cash grab now, or do you want quality that will stand the test of time, and build a following for decades.

I still play the game a few minutes here and there when I'm too tired or drunk to read. It's way more stable since launch and the numerous mods have improved the rest. Space combat and flight control remains terrible and as non-intuitive as you can possibly get. The new story is kinda neat for a 3-4 hour time waster. The worlds and creatures are still very much the same. For a game that supposedly renders the whole universe all of the biomes, plants, animals, landmasses, etc. feel like they are from the same planet. The simplistic solar system modeling is absolute shit and I hate how the sun is merely a 2d skybox and the planets are stationary. Currently the way "multiplayer" works is if you enter a zone with up to a dozen or so players you see each other as orbs of light that cannot be interacted with.

Play Elite Dangerous instead if you want good space stuff.

LOL. That's pretty great. Laughed out loud for the first time today.

The original game was just a giant tech demo to fund further development. They should have just released it as an Xbox Game Preview instead of a $60 PS4 retail game. I might buy it again for my X1X. I loved it but got really upset when my Atlas quest glitched and I quit playing.

But the update coming out in two weeks will allow you to see them as they are and interact with the world together. You will also be able to join parties instead of hoping to find someone. But yeah, its retarded right now.

Also, thanks for the heads up on Elite Dangerous, going to check out a trailer now.

How is the studio still open, where is the money coming from? Updating this game is utterly pointless, of the 10 people they may convince to buy the game, 9 will get it secondhand for £5.

Having never played it initially, I would be curious to try it, but not at the price point they are selling it for. They still have not dropped the price.

$20, tops.
