There are also procedurally-generated missions and a form of multiplayer called Joint Exploration, where other players are represented as floating orbs.

That didn't turn out to be true at the time but it seems that Hello Games might be making good on its promise now, as new details about the upcoming Atlas Rises update have come to light.

A new galactic regeneration system will add wealth, economy, and conflict levels to star systems within the game, and the Galaxy Map has been changed to not only reflect these levels, but also to improve navigation as you make your way to the center. "You've become part of the No Man's Sky origin story".

As it turns out, Atlas Rises is much, much bigger than Murray initially let on. Ancient portals can now be activated too, allowing players to revisit previous planets, others bases or jump randomly to new worlds. New NPC guilds will also be introduced.

No Man's Sky is pretty damn massive, but now - hopefully - it'll feel a little smaller because you've now got access to your mates in space.

"Visualised by odd floating orbs, up to 16 players can see and communicate with one another, and explore the universe together", Hello Games explains on its website. Up to 16 players can see and communicate with each other as they explore the unknown. Hello Games says that this is an important first step, so expect added functionality in the future. Interaction is limited, but you have local voice chat and could theoretically us the terrain editing Multi-Tool enhancements together.

You'll be able to analyse resources before you start hacking away to gain alternative resources from mining too. Ship maneuverability has been improved, bringing more skill to dog-fighting abd devastating rockets can be equipped to ships and upgraded for even greater firepower.

It pays to be a nosy parker in No Man's Sky.

There's tons more to the update, from better dogfighting to low-level planetary flight (and dogfighting!), improved interfaces, depth of field and on and on, which can be read about over on the No Man's Sky page dedicated to it.
