Hello Games is launching a new update today, October 29th, 2018 for No Man’s Sky. Update version 1.7 titled The Abyss will add more to the game’s oceans. The Abyss is now available for free on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC.
During a press release, Hello Games and co-founder Sean Murry explained, “we wanted to focus on improving underwater, and also on some of the eerier elements of the game for Halloween…Oceans were always vast in size in No Man’s Sky, but are now a huge, deep part of our gameplay.” The Abbys has added new missions, frequent monsters, a submarine, and new buildings.
Hello Games has expanded on No Man’s Sky in so many wonderful ways since their last update, Next, which came out in July. They’ve made a huge comeback since the game’s original release and flop last year. To see them still expanding is awesome for those of us who love the game for its depth and immersion.
I know what I’m doing tonight! How about you?
