No Man's Sky had a shaky beginning.
A lot of what was originally promised would be in the game...wasn't. And it didn't live up to its hype.
But that was back in 2014 and a lot has changed in 6 years.
Is No Man's Sky worth buying 2020?
No Man's Sky today is close to what the developers said it was in the beginning, and is a ton of fun, letting you explore and interact with the universe. ... You can explore across cool planets and find materials.
Each planet is different and is procedurally generated.
The latest update for the game (these are all free), called Next Generation, was released on October 28th:
While this update is focussed towards console gamers, there are that PC gamers will get from this update and into the future.
First of all, there are a number of benefits which became available to those with high end PCs on November 10th.
Those with high end PCs will benefit from all-new ultra biomes.
The universe will be lusher, richer and more densely populated universes than ever before.
Planetary surfaces will be even more detailed, with thousands more rocks, alien grasses, and exotic flora on screen at any time (with your settings set to Ultra).
Alien vistas will have improved shadows, greater draw distances, thousands more objects on screen and improved lighting and volumetric effects.
Secondly, Next Generation marks a moment in time where No Man’s Sky can start to build towards a future which is less restricted and full of possibilities.
This is just another stepping stone.
