Earlier this week, we heard that No Man's Sky would be getting a big free expansion this week called "Atlas Rises". It is said that it will zero in on the title's main storyline including the reduction of travel time. Just over 12 months since launch, the game awaits its imminent Atlas Rises update-and Hello Games has now announced what we can expect.

Earning a 7/10 in our review upon its initial launch in August 2016, No Man's Sky released without numerous features fans were expecting. It'll also double the lore and interactions of the existing game. Moreover, he also made a shout out to the fans who signed up for the Citizen Science Division as he teased that such is only the beginning.

No Man's Sky update 1.3 is scheduled to go live imminently.

Regarding the multiplayer, Hello Games state, "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. You've become part of the No Man's Sky origin story". There is yet to be a specific release date, but it is expected to arrive sometime this week for PlayStation 4 and PC users.

It was then followed by "Path Finder" that came out in March of this year and introduced some nifty land vehicles know as the Nomad, Roamer, and the Colossus which is the largest among the three not to mention its impressive cargo hold.

However, over the year, Hello Games has been working throughout the year to fix the damage that has been done to their reputation by giving more improvements and updates.

No Man's Sky launched past year 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.
