No Man's Sky got a Third Major Update, after one whole year

No Man's Sky got a Third Major Update, after one whole year”

No Man's Sky launched a year ago with mixed reception and developer Hello Games faced a lot of backlash from the gaming community over skipping some promised features from No Man's Sky like its multiplayer component which was straight up absent from the game.

The SEO summary read as follows, and contains a few hints as to what to expect: "Atlas Rises, brings a brand new and overhauled central storyline, portals, a new procedural mission system, trade improvements, system economies, joint exploration and more".

According to an independently verifiable leak on the No Man's Sky subreddit, Update 1.3 might also be adding some kind of multiplayer to the sprawling space exploration game.

The mention of joint exploration is what fans are getting excited about, as the game was supposed to ship with multiplayer functionality, with the developer saying that finding other players would be unlikely due to the vast distances between them, but it would not be impossible.

Developed by Hello Games, "No Man's Sky" had a lot of expectations when it first came back in 2016. Fans should not have too long to wait and find out. When the game has been mailed to people with a hidden code word on the tape, the code word was announced to be "portals" and therefore is assumed to be one of the features of the update. The past couple of months have seen an ARG leading up to today.

At roughly 1 am United Kingdom, a password protected page was put up on the No Man's Sky website containing the 1.3 Patch Notes. It's Friday, so time is running out for it to appear this week.

The update, titled "Atlas Rises", is the third major update since the game title was released.
