No Man's Sky fans excited by leak promising "joint exploration"

No Man's Sky may finally get co-op exploration and story overhaul in next update

We're adding a new 20 hour core story to the game, leading players on a journey which culminates in the use of Portals.

An upcoming update to No Man's Sky - titled "Atlas Rises" - figures to add a few new things to the game that fans were hoping would have shipped with the original version of the title. No Man's Sky Update 1.3 also introduces new Mission System which will grant players new and unique tasks.

Travel is getting a bit of an overhaul as well.

Add all of this to the new exotic biomes, plants, crashed freighters, salvage missions, gas harvesters, maintenance interactions, improved Analysis Visor data, UI upgrade, visual improvements, new alien race, more kinds of ships, better space combat, low atmospheric flight, and more. Atlas Rises also gives you the power to change planets yourself: A new terrain manipulator allows you to sculpt the landscape with the Multi-Tool. When we first heard about Atlas Rises, Hello Games chief Sean Murray spoke only briefly and in general terms about what it will include.

"This update marks the one year anniversary of No Man's Sky, and a lot has changed".

It pays to be a nosy parker in No Man's Sky. That more easily enables community meet ups, and for the first time, there's a step toward full co-op play, as you get to see the position of up to 16 other players via floating orbs.

Hello Games wrote, "While interaction with others is now very limited, this is an important first step into the world of synchronous co-op in No Man's Sky". Players will be able to voice chat with other players if they are nearby. The limits of procedural generation are what led to this tedium as most of the planets feel the same along with the creatures.

Analyze resources before harvesting for to gain alternative resources from mining. Ancient portals can now be activated too, allowing players to revisit previous planets, others bases or jump randomly to new worlds.

Space combat mechanics have been improved to make fighting in space more compelling.

It's pretty obvious that the Atlas Rises update is geared towards players who are already invested in the No Man's Sky universe and are already familiar with how to interact with it.

As No Man's Sky has developed, it's struggled to balance the appeal of its mystery with the utility that makes it playable.
