So one year after the disastrous lies.. err.. launch, that's the word, there's a massive update which seems to bring features that should've been there and/or were promised from the start, and then some? It's also on sale across all the main shops, which brings it down to a more reasonable price as well - even more so for the UK, 16 squiggly Ls right now (24€ over here, might need to find a VPN).
At this (price) point, I think I'm gonna go for it, worst case scenario is a space ETS2 relax/timesink game.

  • 30 hours of branching story and deeper lore
  • Procedurally generated guild missions
  • Much deeper interstellar trading
  • Star Systems have varying wealth, conflict and economies
  • Overhauled Space combat controls, weapons and AI
  • Portal stargates enable quick travel
  • Terrain manipulation for more complex bases
  • New farming and mining interactions bring increased depth
  • Increased biome variety and Rare exotic biomes
  • Analysis visor & discovery improvements
  • Galaxy map and many other UI improvements
  • New S Class ship designs
  • Low altitude flight and the ability to crash your ship
  • Crashed Freighters to salvage on planets
  • Joint exploration

Full patch notes available here with more details (e.g. the joint exploration isn't full on multiplayer (yet?), but you can explore stuff together, visualised by orbs, or something).

It's good that they've managed to salvage something that resembles a functional video game out of it, and that they actually bothered to try and bring it together after the mess it was on launch day rather than abandon it. But I feel like if I buy it now I'm just positively reinforcing the "ship a broken game with none of the promised features for full price and patch it later" strategy. I don't think there is a way for me to see past that anymore.

How's the game after the big update? I'd like to get back into it but only if it was significantly improved.

Big update coming in next week, sounds like it's making the game what it should've been from the start :)

I feel like https://www.improtomotinggreymarketsitesandamverysneakyaboutit.com/blog/no-mans-sky-redemption-story/ is a must read for anyone that was initially interested but did not buy because of the first reviews. The game is great now.
