It feels like No Man’s Sky has come leaps and bounds over the last two years, and it’s showing no signs of stopping.
Revealed overnight, No Man’s Sky Visions is version 1.75 and brings a whole heap of new content and visual changes that once again move No Man’s Sky closer to the original vision that Sean Murray and his team had. It’s releasing later today, which is pretty damn exciting.
The main updates are new planetary biomes, more colourful worlds, a bunch of new fauna and flora, archaeology, salvaging and a heaps more which you can watch in the trailer below.
ALL THE NEW FEATURES IN NO MAN’S SKY VISIONS
NEW PLANETARY BIOMES
New anomalous planet biomes create a weirder, more diverse universe to explore.
Bizarre creatures have evolved on anomalous planets, bringing new life and movement to these eerie landscapes.
The universe has become more alien, vibrant and exciting to explore. New shades of sky and grass enable more unique worlds and a more diverse set of science fiction aesthetics.
New types of water create stranger worlds to be discovered both above and below the surface.
ATMOSPHERIC TYPES AND RAINBOWS
Atmospherics and skies have been improved and stormy weather conditions can now produce rainbows in planetary atmospheres.
Exotic planets can be searched to discover mysterious artifacts which can be claimed as trophies. These otherworldly objects can be rehoused in habitable bases to create a showcase of your voyages across the universe.
With more varied planets come more reasons to explore. Unleash your inner archeologist and search the galaxy for planets containing the ancient bones of alien lifeforms. Complete, intact skeletons are particularly rare and especially valuable.
Unearth the long-forgotten remains of fallen satellites and scrap them for salvagable parts. Explorers must use their multitool to dismantle the reinforced casing and extract the valuable technology within… but risk drawing the attention of new, challenging, corrupted sentinel drones.
Those who endure the hazardous storms that blast extreme planets can seek out precious new crystal treasures. These spectacular natural formations become luminescent during the worst weather, and can be collected by intrepid explorers to be traded for a small fortune.
VARIED HAZARDOUS FLORA
New varieties of hazardous flora can now be found sprouting across the galaxies, ready to snare the unwary and reward the cautious. Carnivorous trap plants and bloated gas flora can be eliminated from afar, or carefully approached for extra substance rewards.
Certain planets now feature strange alien rock creatures who will attempt to flee the heat of a mining laser. Mine these runaway minerals to extract concentrated resource rewards.
SHARED COMMUNITY MISSION PROGRESS
A new Community Research mission allows explorers to share progress and work towards a common goal.
Discover the Visions universe together to unlock the new Eye of the Korvax helmet…
…as well as well as new emotes, building parts and a range of fireworks to celebrate any occasion.
CRASHED FREIGHTER VARIATIONS
Crashed freighters are now procedurally generated, with dozens of possible configurations. Explore different crash site layouts and carve a path with your multitool to retrieve the valuable cargo buried nearby.
