Procedural crash freighters, rainbows, new base parts, and more are also coming.
Hello Games has been on fire with updates for No Man’s Sky this year. After the recent Abyss update, which took the game’s base-building and exploration underwater, the space exploration title will see some new planets, biomes, and much more in Visions. Though the developer hasn’t officially announced it, a trailer for Visions suddenly became available and detailed its features.
Along with new worlds to explore and more planetary biomes, Visions will introduce new fauna, an improved colour palette, and even rainbows. Crashed freighters will be procedurally generated as well, and players can “raid” them (though in what sense remains to be seen). There will also be archaeology involved, as players dig up rare alien skeletons and collect artefacts.
More visual improvements are inbound for skyboxes and atmospherics. Players will also see global community missions sharing progress around the world. If all of this wasn’t enough, new emotes, base parts, tougher environments, and even fireworks will be available. There’s no release date yet (the official page isn’t even live) but expect an announcement soon.
