No Man’s Sky’s Day-One Update Adds a Ton of New Content

If you thought No Man’s Sky was a big game before, developer Hello Games has been hard at work to bring even more content to the game’s interplanetary adventures, including multiple endings, larger inventories and a greater variety to the galaxies’ vast environments.

After ceasing development on the main game a month ago, the developer began working on an initial No Man’s Sky update, which will be available to download upon the game’s official launch. As is stated on Hello Games’ website, both this and all future updates are expected to be free.

Whilst those with early copies of the game will still be able to play the game post-update, players won’t be able to access the new features with their current saved game. As such, it’s recommended that these players start a new game to enjoy the full experience. It is also noted that this is a one-off, so you won’t need to keep resetting your game each time you update in future.

One of the biggest changes brought by the update is the new ‘Three Paths’ structure. You can now play through No Man’s Sky according to three unique pathways, with early decisions affecting what you encounter later on in the game, as well as shaping the overall experience.

The algorithm the game uses to spawn different solar systems has also been tweaked, so that galaxies are more varied, and up to ten times larger.

You’ll also be able to carry more than previously permitted, with ship inventories now five times larger, and suit inventories storing 2.5 times more per slot. If the added capacity still doesn’t meet your needs as a deep-space dealer, however, Hello Games intend to expand this feature even more in the next update, in order to aid players’ trading endeavours in the later sections of the game.

These are just a few tweaks that’ll arise in the update on Wednesday. The update brings with it a vista of other details, including auto aiming during combat, deeper economy and trading structures, enhanced resolution and harsher weather conditions. You can even befriend certain creatures in the game, if you feed them correctly.

No Man’s Sky releases on August 9 in North America and August 10 in Europe. For more information, you can visit Hello Game’s official website here, or follow the game on Twitter.
