No Man's Sky v1.3 Atlas Rises update released

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

It looks like Multiplayer Might Finally Come to No Man's Sky

No man's Sky launched previous year and there was a lot of hype for the game before launch.

From what we saw, Update 1.3, otherwise known as Atlas Rises, will feature an "overhauled central story line, portals, a new procedural mission system, trade improvements, system economies, joint exploration and more". Judging from the description, the entire game is getting an overhaul, with new trading systems and a new story. In the Atlas Rises story, the fabric of existence is starting to falter.

Even if sanctions bite, will North Korea give up its nukes?
The United States had to figure out how far China and Russian Federation were willing to go. Another big thing the sanctions don't address is the oil that China exports to North Korea.

No Man's Sky update 1.3 is scheduled to go live imminently. Whether you're a veteran interloper or completely new to the No Man's Sky universe, there has never been a better time to start your journey. This was a part of the game's appeal, in a way: to be able to get so deeply lost in a vast universe. No Man's Sky players have always been asking for features such as the ability to salvage crashed freighters, fly close to planets' surfaces and land a ship without being automatically ejected from the cockpit - and they can now do all of those things. The trick, with any story, is to make the familiar unfamiliar. Either way, Hello Games is going to have a lot of making up to do with the gaming community if it wants us to forgive them for No Man's Sky. Hello Games have already teased a more function co-op multiplayer in a future update and they are calling this integration of online multiplayer as the first step towards this direction. It has now been brought to our notice that PlayStation Plus subscription is not needed for the Joint Exploration in No Man's Sky.

Players who come close to each other will see their fellow travellers visualised as odd floating orbs, and will be able to travel with them and meet up on other planets. Despite that, they were not actually able to interact in any way or even see each other.

Say what you will about the state No Man's Sky launched in, and what the developers had said about it before it launched, but there's no denying that Hello Games has been surprisingly committed to the game. What you build depends on the materials you have, but they don't mention how rare those materials will be.

If you think a planet is just missing a little somethin', you can now literally transform the ground beneath your feet to mould the terrain as you see fit.

The conservators believe the cake was brought by British explorer Robert Falcon Scott during the 1910-1913 Terra Nova expedition . Conservators from the Trust have been working on restoring and documenting nearly 1500 artifacts from the Cape for the past year.

The drop in popularity of No Man's Sky was to be expected, however. If not, what could Hello Games do to make you pick it up again?
