Visions update (1.75) is looking to open your eyes to a more varied and more diverse universe within No Man’s Sky. The latest update will be available tomorrow, on Thanksgiving Day, and it’s absolutely free. Introducing new planetary biomes, more vibrant worlds, new fauna and flora, archaeology, salvaging, and just a better unique experience for would-be space explorers traveling across the cosmos.

Welcome anomalous planet biomes, the worlds you visit will now bear outlandish landscapes and structures to fulfill a sense of uniqueness along your journey. The universe, is a diverse place filled with subtle intricacies, after all, so the planets you encounter will now better express this. And these bizarre locales home equally bizarre creatures that have adapted and evolved to their environment… Keep your eyes peeled for the local wildlife.

Aside from the new anomalous planet biomes, we have further new assets to help sprinkle flavor across the galaxy. Introducing new shades of both sky and grass, new types of water, atmospherics and further sky improvements, topped off with lovely rainbows that stormy weather conditions can now produce. And perhaps you’ll find a pot of gold at end of one of these gleaming rainbows, or some other form of valuable goodie.

Speaking of goodies, how about a souvenir for the road, maybe a mysterious artifact found on some exotic planet? If you happen to stumble upon an otherworldly object, you can claim it as your very own personal trophy. Which can then be displayed and rehoused at habitable bases to commemorate the many adventures you take part on within the universe of No Man’s Sky

There are many other valuables and goodies to discover and possibly loot of course, such as the ancient bones of various alien lifeforms, salvageable parts of fallen satellites, or even crystal treasure hidden within hazardous storms. Crashed freighters which are now procedurally generated will also provide intrepid explorers with cargo, just make sure your multitool is at the ready. So go ahead and scavenge what you will, but remember, there are dangers lurking around some of these treasures.

You might scoff at the plant life on Earth and maybe overlook an idle boulder, but out in the vast universe, things aren’t always as they seem to be. The new flora sprouting up across galaxies are inherently dangerous; the unwary will easily be snared and the cautious rewarded. And sentient minerals, that are actually alien lifeforms, may take your mining session out on a scenic detour. These creatures aren’t really fond of being beamed by a heated, concentrated laser and will flee your attempts at mining. You’ll have to follow in pursuit if you really want to extract those runaway minerals.

Your voyage throughout the universe might call for the cooperative effort with other explorers. A new Community Research Mission will allow players to share progress and work towards a common goal. Discover the Visions universe together and unlock the Eye of the Korvax helmet, as well as new emotes, building parts, and celebratory fireworks. Teamwork makes the dream work here in No Man’s Sky folks.
