Check out No Man’s Sky massive visual overhaul coming to PC, Xbox Series X, and PS5 as part of the upcoming Prisms update.
The full list of changes to the game in this patch is as follows. Most are graphics-based, but there are some other ones in there too:
Rain + Weather
Parallax Occlusion Mapping
New Warp Effects
Improved Photo Mode
New Particle Effects
Improved Light Shafts
Increased Biome Detail
It looks stunning, and at this point, I have missed enough patches where it might actually be time to hop in again, which I have done at least once a year since launch due to the amount of updates the game has gotten, which has now made it go above and beyond what was originally promised at launch. It really is a stunning transformation, which is why the game is well-deserving of “best ongoing game” awards and others that it’s won recently.
Will No Man’s Sky simply be updated forever? I don’t know, but at this point, I’m certainly not going to rule it out, given how it’s shown that it can keep evolving for half a decade.
For those who aren’t in the know, No Man’s Sky, is a procedural science fiction video game developed by English developer Hello Games out of Guildford, UK. Hello Games is best known for their Joe Danger series, and is bringing their unique development style to No Man’s Sky. The game will feature planetary exploration, deep oceans, space-based battles, predators and prey, and much more across various procedurally-generated worlds. Each world will have its own ecosystems, rewards, and dangers, leading the player through the four core pillars of the game: Explore, Fight, Trade, and Survive.
