It’s been a difficult wait, but No Man’s Sky’s hugely anticipated Beyond update is finally here. And with it comes a heaving page of patch notes for those eager to learn what delights are in-store – aside from the much-touted VR and expanded online components, of course.
As our Martin explained last week following his chat with Hello Games, the previously mysterious “third tier” of No Man’s Sky’s Beyond update is all about refinements and additions intended to flesh out the existing game, while also making for a more coherent experience. After six major updates since launch, No Man’s Sky was getting a bit unwieldy.
To that end, Hello says that the early game has been significantly revised to better introduce players to No Man’s Sky’s vast array of disparate mechanics, while new story content has been added to bring together the game’s three main narrative pathways seen in previous updates.
