In celebration of the one-year anniversary of No Man's Sky, developer Hello Games has just released the most substantial update that the game has ever seen. One of the biggest disappointments regarding No Man's Sky at launch was the lack of a cohesive, compelling story, but Hello Games is looking to rectify that misstep a year later. Other players will appear as floating orbs of light and the voice chat is proximity based, so stick close to your friends once you find them.

You'll need to be in exactly the right places for this to happen however, so don't expect just to bump into people on the fly. While it is limited, currently, it looks like these are the first steps to adding in full multiplayer is in the works for No Man's Sky.

Perhaps at some point in the future, No Man's Sky players will be able to see each other flying around in ships, see actual character models, or team up to explore, fight aliens, and collect resources. Players can now explore rare new exotic planet types as they journey toward the galactic core, discover and scavenge lost cargo from very big crashed Freighters on planetary surfaces, use the terrain manipulator to excavate buried resources in the region, and complete Salvage missions for Guild rewards.

Other additions will include crashed freighters to loot, terrain editing, and the ability to summon your ship if you get a little lost.

All true it seems, now that the full 1.3 "Atlas Rising" update for Hello Games' galactic exploration simulation has landed.

It's been re-calibrated to give you more info and better rewards for scanning everything you see. Additionally, this game wouldn't be dishonestly marketed the way No Man's Sky was and live up the hype.
