Video details 11 changes made to No Man's Sky since launch


Packed my bag last night pre-flight

Hello Games has released a video showcasing the breadth of changes made to their universe-exploring space title No Man's Sky, which launched to some controversy back in 2016.

The video details some of the major changes made to No Man's Sky since its original release, shining a light on features such as a deeper trading system, tweaked modes such as Creative and Permadeath, an improved combat system and the base-building mechanic.

"We have our massive NEXT update launching across all platforms on July 24th, and for the first time on Xbox One!" says creator Sean Murray. "But a question we get asked all the time is ‘What's changed in No Man’s Sky?’, so our friends at 505 Games have made a handy vid '11 Things That Have Changed in No Man’s Sky Since Launch' to remind everybody about the many many things that have changed… since launch."

With the arrival of NEXT, which promises to be the biggest update to NMS thus far, Hello Games are hoping that the new video will persuade those who have moved away from the deep-space explorer to hop in their rocket ships for one more jaunt around its weird, fantastical environments.

No Man's Sky is available now on PC and PS4. The NEXT update and Xbox One edition launches July 24.
