Limited Online Co-Op Added in Atlas Rises Update - No Man's Sky - MMORPG.com

Hello Games has released a brand new trailer and information about the large update called Atlas Rises. The content expansion is expected to launch later today. There are a lot of big things coming with Atlas Rises, most notably a limited online cooperative mode called Joint Exploration.

Major components of Atlas Rises include:

  • 30 hours of new story content
  • 'Galactic Regeneration' that adds wealth, economy and conflict levels to star systems
  • new worlds to explore with improved planetary biomes
  • new rare planet types
  • discover and scavenge crashed Freighters
  • a new Mission Agent in Space Stations 
  • NPC guilds
  • new trade goods
  • tiered crafting
  • re-calibrated Analysis Visors
  • improved UI
  • visual improvements
  • terrain editing
  • ancient portals that allow fast travel to already-visited planets
  • improvements to space flight and combat
  • new ships
  • quality of life improvements
  • limited co-op (see below)
    • Glitches in the simulation have begun to appear.
    • Visualised by strange floating orbs, up to 16 players can see and communicate with one another, and explore the universe together.
    • While interaction with others is currently very limited, this is an important first step into the world of synchronous co-op in No Man’s Sky.
    • While interaction is very limited, VOIP (Voice over IP) allows proximity based voice chatwith other nearby explorers.
    • Use portals to quickly travel to more populated planets, or to meet up with friends.
