No Man's Sky Origins

No Man's Sky's 3.0 version has just been revealed. It's called No Man's Sky Origins, and the update "dramatically expands the universe". The game will now have more planetary diversity, new terrain and creatures and weather conditions, and huge buildings.

By planetary diversity, there are now millions of new and untouched planets for players to explore, which means that there are also some rare systems with multiple stars. This creates beautiful new patterns in the sky that really look out of this world, amirite?

No Man's Origins Stars
This game looks pretty damn good.

While player bases have remained undisturbed in the new update, which is good. The user interface has been revamped, which by the website looks pretty clean and easy to understand. There's also alien fauna that can be encountered, which can either be roaming the terrain, rolling along it, or burrowing through it. They can be harvested for edible produce, although who knows on how good it'll taste.

If you see cloud coverage over a planet in space, if you go down into the planet you'll see the same cloud coverage that you saw from space, which means there is now more variety between clear skies and planets that are overcast. This goes with the palette of colors that the game now offers, as there are now more variations for players to discover than what could be found before.
