No Man’s Sky Update 1.3 “Atlas Rises” Now Live, Brings Limited Co-Op, New World And More

No man’s Sky launched last year and there was a lot of hype for the game before launch. However, for most the game was a disappointment as the game lacked a lot of promised features. But, Hello Games has been supporting the game with new content and now the studio rolled out No Man’s Sky update 1.3 titled Atlas Rises.

No Man’s Sky Update 1.3 brings a slew of content including multiplayer but, in a limited capacity. No Man’s Sky Update 1.3 adds new story along with a new alien race. According to Hello Games, the new story content will take about 30 hours to complete.

No Man’s Sky Update 1.3 also introduces new worlds and “variety and visual quality of planetary biomes have been improved.” No Man’s Sky Update 1.3 also introduces new Mission System which will grant players new and unique tasks.

Aside from the content, No Man’s Sky Update 1.3 also brings improvements to the UI and visuals of the game. Check Out the full patch notes for No Man’s Sky Update 1.3 here.

While No Man’s Sky was a disappointment at launch but, it is good to see that Hello Games is supporting the game and are including the features that were originally promised. The multiplayer introduced with the update is quite limited. Only 16 players will be able to explore the universe together. Players will be able to voice chat with other players if they are nearby.

While No Man’s Sky was a fun little experiment for Hello Games the studio currently has another procedurally generated game in development. Sean Murray revealed that Hello Games is working on another game.

According to game’s creator himself, that the game’s development was not an easy task and described the development on the game like building a rocket ship.

No Man’s Sky is a first-person action-adventure game developed by Hello Games for PC and PlayStation 4.
