Hello Games launched its procedurally generated space exploration game, No Man's Sky, exactly a year ago. Although the game had a massive amount of hype behind it, following its launch, the game's apparent lack of advertised features spawned an equally massive backlash from the community.
Since its launch, the game has received two substantial free content patches in the form of the Foundation Update and the Path Finder Update. The former was released just a couple of months after the game's launch, heralding new gameplay modes and various bug fixes; meanwhile, the latter landed in March this year, bringing vehicles, visual upgrades, base sharing, and more.
Today, the developer made an announcement on its blog, saying that a new update is soon heading to the game, titled Atlas Rises. "It focuses on improving the central story of No Man’s Sky and adds the ability to quick travel between locations using portals," said the developer.
A full list of what is incoming for the game will be made available before the update goes live later this week on PC and PlayStation 4. As with all previous updates, Atlas Rises will arrive free of charge to all No Man's Sky owners.
