Sean Murray has revealed the patch notes for the first No Man’s Sky update which will be available on launch day. It’s what the team has been working on since the game went live over the past four to five weeks and reading through the notes has got me insanely excited to explore the vast world. There are some minor spoilers, so read with caution.
The Three Paths – there are now new, unique “paths” you can follow throughout the game. You must start the game on a fresh save, with the patch, as early choices have significant impact on what you see later in the game, and the overall experience.
The Universe – we changed the rules of the universe generation algorithm. Planets have moved. Environments have changed biomes. Galaxies have altered shape. All to create greater variety earlier. Galaxies are now up to 10x larger.
