No Man's Sky Patch This Week

The No Man's Sky website has details on a new patch that's coming this week to the space exploration game. The patch is called Atlas Rises, and they say it will improve the game's central story. Here's word from Hello Games' Sean Murray:
It’s been a year since No Man’s Sky first released, and it’s been an exciting, intense and emotional year for us at Hello Games. We have been quiet, but we have been listening intently.

We’ve spent that year working hard on free updates for this game our team cares about so much.

Update 1.3 will release this week and will be available for free to all No Man’s Sky players. We’re calling it Atlas Rises. It focuses on improving the central story of No Man’s Sky and adds the ability to quick travel between locations using portals. Patch notes will be made available shortly before the update goes live.

What we do is much more important than what we say, but since launch we have sometimes focused too much on that.

We wanted to reach out and celebrate the devoted community that means so much to us. We launched Waking Titan to try to do that.

When we posted those cassettes we didn’t know what to expect. In the last eight weeks a quarter of a million players from across the globe (174 countries, to be precise!) have come together – united by a shared love of mystery and science fiction – to form the Citizen Science Division. You’ve travelled great distances both real and virtual, undertaken complex tasks, and explored the depths of simulation theory. New friendships have been forged, and a tight-knit community has been created. Most importantly a cute hamster has a new home.

You’ve become part of the No Man’s Sky origin story.

It’s been an honour to watch, but this is just the beginning. Whether you’ve followed Waking Titan or not, we welcome anyone to sign up to the Citizen Science Division, and to join us on the official CSD forums.

Our journey continues.

Thank you for this year. We hope you enjoy what comes next.

I need to get back to Elite Dangerous at some point..

However, truthfully, I'm not looking forward to
1) setting up the HOTAS again -- not especially difficult just kind of annoying
2) relearning the flight controls and activities such as docking/landing again

Being a lazy bum is a such tough life...

Elite is easy to fly, you really only need to set up a coolie hat and throttle to support 6DOF like descent, and pedals for yaw if you don't have a 20yo Sidewinder that twists. You could also set yaw to the stick itself like I think wing commander did but Elite ships usually prefer roll before turn.

Plus remember that 'insert' lowers landing gear (Be careful, I think one of the buttons near it drops your cargo and another closes your heat vents so you cook!)

The only thing hard about landing in the little baby ships you start in is forgetting to get clearance from traffic control and you through the mail slot and get hit with a fine for trespassing and lasers for ignoring that. I set the modifier that lets you bring up the HUD to do this and all the other things to one of my very few buttons on my ancient plastic artifact from the golden age of Microsoft's hardware labs.

I love Elite. It's more than Euro Space Truck Simulator... but also it's mostly that. It's much drier than NMS, with it's massive, mostly empty quasi accurate galaxy of ice giants and barren space bodies and lack of Spore creatures some systems/vistas are absolutely stunning.
