When No Man’s Sky launched last year, it was as gorgeous and atmospheric as it was hollow and dull; a game that was perfect for some mindless relaxation, but not the space sim it at first appeared to be. Hello Games haven’t left it to rot, however, and it’s been fattened up with a bunch of beefy updates that add a slew of new features.
Remind yourself how things were at launch with our No Man's Sky PC review.
I’ve popped back to wherever I parked my spaceship (thank goodness I don’t need to find my keys) to see if it’s worth another visit.
During development, one question kept being asked: what actually is No Man’s Sky? At launch, the answer remained unclear. It dipped its toe into the survival and crafting genre, walking sims and space sims, but it never really committed. Each facet was half-baked.
