No Man's Sky's new story campaign will last around 30 hours, with a branching narrative and new context and quest systems.
Yes, it's been nearly a year, but despite going silent for a long time after launch, this will actually be Hello Games' third major update for its beleaguered game. It'll also double the lore and interactions of the existing game.
Other features being touted are the additions of wealth, economy and conflict levels to star systems, an overhauled Galaxy map, the ability to install "Galactic technology" to filter the map by lifeform, wealth and economy, and an improved waypoint system. Many had hoped the previous update would also place some improvement on the story, but the major inclusions that were made back then was the introduction of vehicles as well as base-building.
Interestingly, Hello Games had this to add: "While interaction with others is now very limited, this is an important first step into the world of synchronous co-op in No Man's Sky".
Players can also visit the new Mission Agent in Space Stations to pick up unique and rewarding new tasks as new missions are constantly generated, and cater to all play styles (scanning, trading, combat and exploration).
Hello Games is quick to stress that interaction is "currently very limited", although you can use VOIP chat to communicated with nearby explorers. Apparently there are more upgrades to be equipped as well to improve it and reap even more rewards.
Atmospheric low flight assist now allows players to cruise above the terrain. The official description confirms the player count as well as voice over IP for the multiplayer but this has yet to be tested in the actual game.

While the details regarding it are still surrounded in mystery, some users have managed to discover other players online leading to a curious test to see if they are able to interact with each other.style="text-align: center;"
