This week, No Man’s Sky received another free update for PlayStation, PC and Xbox gamers called Visions which introduces new planetary biomes, more colourful worlds, new fauna and flora, archaeology, salvaging, and much more. Sean Murray from Hello Games posted the following messages to Twitter fans:
New anomalous planet biomes create a weirder, more diverse universe to explore. The universe has become more alien, vibrant and exciting to explore. New shades of sky and grass enable more unique worlds and a more diverse set of science fiction aesthetics. New types of water create stranger worlds to be discovered both above and below the surface. Atmospherics and skies have been improved and stormy weather conditions can now produce rainbows in planetary atmospheres.
Exotic planets can be searched to discover mysterious artifacts which can be claimed as trophies. These otherworldly objects can be rehoused in habitable bases to create a showcase of your voyages across the universe. With more varied planets come more reasons to explore. Unleash your inner archeologist and search the galaxy for planets containing the ancient bones of alien lifeforms. Complete, intact skeletons are particularly rare and especially valuable. Unearth the long-forgotten remains of fallen satellites and scrap them for salvageable parts. Explorers must use their multitool to dismantle the reinforced casing and extract the valuable technology within… but risk drawing the attention of new, challenging, corrupted sentinel drones. Exotic planets can be searched to discover mysterious artifacts which can be claimed as trophies. These otherworldly objects can be rehoused in habitable bases to create a showcase of your voyages across the universe.
In addition to these worldly changes, a new Community Research mission allows explorers to share progress and work towards a common goal. Discover the Visions universe together to unlock the Eye of the Korvax helmet and new emotes.
