Hello Games’ latest update for No Man’s Sky, Prisms, is now available free for all players. It’s aimed at visual improvements and revamps, from detailed cave biomes to reflections, improved rain effects (which refract light) and much more. Check out the trailer below.
Flying creatures can now become pets and serve as mounts for players while hair and fur provide more variety. Parallax Occlusion Mapping has also been added while Photo Mode has been improved. Stars are now more visible, lending to bright starry skies and vibrant space; warp effects are more detailed; and screen space reflections combine with new space station interiors.
If that weren’t enough, new particle effects, increased detail and draw distance for biomes and DLSS have also been implemented. The update is the latest of many to arrive for No Man’s Sky, the last one being Expeditions which offered a new game mode along with other content. Stay tuned for more details on future content in the meantime.
