No Man’s Sky “Visions” Update Launches Tomorrow

The latest expansion to Hello Games' universe-spanning adventure adds archaeological digs, salvageable ships, and much more.

Sean Murray's Avatar Posted by Founder, Hello Games

Hello, everyone! Visions is a new free update releasing on Thursday for all No Man’s Sky players. We’ve called it Visions, because it reimagines our universe, introducing new environmental biomes, new planet types, more colourful worlds, new fauna and flora, archaeology, salvaging, and much more…

Just last month we launched The Abyss, which completely changed underwater in No Man’s Sky. We are excited to now make the planet surface far more interesting and varied to explore.

Some new features you might notice in Visions…

New Worlds

The variety and diversity of planet surfaces has been greatly improved. Millions of previously dead planets have now burst into life, creating a weirder, more surprising universe to explore.

Mysterious artifacts can be found on alien planets, which can be collected as mementos and displayed as trophies in your planetary base.

Bizarre Creatures

Strange new creatures can be found among the stars, never before discovered by another traveller. Predatory fauna protect their planets from interlopers, with some creatures even masquerading as ordinary minerals. Deadly flora now has much more variety, with carnivorous trap plants and bloated gas flora waiting to snare the unwary and reward the cautious.

More to Discover

With more varied planets comes more reasons to explore. Unleash your inner archeologist and search the galaxy for planets containing the ancient bones of alien lifeforms.
Unearth the long-forgotten remains of fallen satellites and scrap them for salvagable parts, 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 that only light up during the worst weather.

More Variety

The universe has become more alien, vibrant and exciting to explore. New shades of sky, grass, and water enable more unique worlds and a more diverse set of science fiction aesthetics. Atmospherics and skies have been improved and rainbows have been added to the range of weather effects.

Global Community Missions

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.

We hope you enjoy this and what follows — and we look forward to meeting you out there! Our journey continues.

Thank you,

Add Your Own

Nice. I liked this game as just a chill way to relax and play around when it can out but now it is almost an entirely new game. Good job Hello Games, you guys got too much blame, this game rocks.

It’s such a treat seeing NMS continuous evolve. I’ve spent a lot of time playing it already, and love coming back to it after major updates. Thanks!

I’m torn…I love that you guys are putting so much work into this game and I whole-heartedly appreciate the efforts, but I’m nostalgic and miss my home world, which is no longer sporting the same name I gave it nor do I expect it to look the same. How do I get home? :(

That’s all very well and good but has my white screen of death been fixed yet. I haven’t been able to play since September because of it.

Thank you Sean, for the info! I’d already watched the video earlier, but I particularly enjoyed having it spelled out for us. Thanks Hello Games, as well, for keeping such an amazing experience going for all your fans and with SUCH style! Y’all get it.

Any chance we’ll see new trophies? The current set seems pretty unimaginative for a game with so much to see and do.

    Yes, I platinumed the base game at launch because trophies gave me some sort of direction. I completed the Atlas path but never got to the center of the galaxy or got into the new “story” paths because I got lost in the chaos of it all instead.

    Every update should have trophies linked to the new stuff to lead us in and get us hooked on the content we know is there but can’t seem to get to. That worked when the Path Finder update dropped.

    I have not played since Next so things like systems and menus have probably changed again. Without new trophies, I’ll probably load this up to look at a planet or two and call it a day.

Can we get some way to name our save files. Kind of hard to remember which one is which especially when they shuffle around.

Keep it up Hello Games and one day soon NMS will reach Warframe status.


Otherwise adding PSVR support would be epic!
