New free No Man’s Sky update arrives with Visions

Visions is the latest of the free No Man’s Sky updates, and brings a host of improvements. As the name implies, that includes new visuals.

Hello Games’ Vision

There’s so much to like in there. That includes the somewhat minor (seeming) stuff like the long-dead aliens and those new research options. Of course, Visions follows on the heels of two other updates that have built out Hello Games’ NMS to an incredible degree.

If you were in the group that wasn’t impressed originally, I think it’s safe to say that you should take another glance at this one. Not only is the No Man’s Sky universe massive now, but it’s also populated with a stunning amount of things to do and places to go.

Here’s a rundown of what’s included in Visions:

New Worlds 

  • No Man’s Sky’s “Visions” update greatly improves the variety and diversity of planet surfaces with millions of previously dead planets now bursting with life. Players can find mysterious artefacts on alien planets and collect them as mementos or display as trophies in their planetary base.

Bizarre New Creatures

  • “Visions” will introduce players to new strange and curious creatures found among the stars, waiting to be discovered for the very first time. Predatory fauna and deadly flora including carnivorous trap plants wait to ensnare unsuspecting travellers and reward the cautious.

Global Community Missions

  • A new community research mission will allow players to share their progress as they work towards a common goal. Players can discover the “Visions” universe together and unlock the Eye of the Korvax helmet, as well as other emotes and building parts.

More to Discover and More Variety

  • “Visions” will bring more variety to No Man’s Sky as the universe has become more alien, vibrant and exciting for players to explore. Atmospherics and skies have been improved and rainbows added to the range of in-game weather effects, enabling more unique worlds. Players are invited to unleash their inner archaeologist and explore the galaxy for planets containing the bones of ancient alien lifeforms. Travellers can unearth the remains of fallen satellites to salvage for parts but risk drawing the attention of a new threat and danger – corrupted sentinel drones. Players who can endure and survive the most extreme of weather in No Man’s Sky may also be rewarded with previous crystal treasures that only light up in the worst of storms.
