Hello Games has released another massive update for No Man’s Sky today, since its major multiplayer NEXT update. The new update called The Abyss, is all about expanding the aquatic elements of planets. The Abyss changes the underwater exploration in a big way, by adding new aquatic plants and animals, sunken wrecks, and a new submarine, the Nautilon.

There will also be additional missions and a new story set in water, called The Dreams of the Deep , which fits into the No Man’s Sky macro narrative, in which you’ll investigate two tales of deep sea tragedy.

Below is the video trailer for the new No Man’s Sky The Abyss update , along with the press release with further details on the new features introduced.

No Man’s Sky The Abyss: introducing update 1.7

Explore the terrors of the deep in The Abyss update. Introducing aquatic environments with over 5 times more variety, varied creature behaviours, improved underwater visuals and much more.

Creatures of the deep

Underwater creatures have become more frequent, and more interesting. Aquatic life inhabits the full depth of the ocean, and unique terrifying creatures can be encountered on the ocean floor.

Exploring the sea bed can be lucrative, yielding Crystallised SulphurLiving Pearls or Hadal Cores, but avoid the territorial creatures that lurk there. From poisonous Jellyfish, to snapping clams and predator fish rumoured to be larger than Starships. And beware the Abyssal Horror, which has lured many explorers to a grim end.

Aquatic missions

The Dreams of the Deep story brings a new context to the depths and a dark narrative to No Man’s Sky. Discover the fate of a troubled crew stranded from a freighter crash by the rising tides, or explore underwater ruins to uncover the tale of a lost soul trapped deep beneath the waves.

Sunken wreaks

Investigate submerged buildings to find remnants of their lost occupants.

Discover and scavenge lost cargo from gigantic freighter wrecks. Use the terrain manipulator to excavate treasures buried in the nearby ocean floor.

Find and repair rare crashed starships to restore them from the seabed to the skies. Investigate sunken ruins and find ancient treasures.

Diving Helmet

True aquanauts will want to customise their appearance with the diving helmet, the Lost Bathysphere.

New underwater biomes

We’ve introduced a host of visual improvements, allowing you to explore underwater in even greater detail. The variety and visual quality of underwater biomes has been greatly improved. Experience rare exotic aquatic biomes as you explore new depths.

Submarine

Master the depths of planets using a new Exocraft, the Nautilon. This submersible vehicle give new meaning to underwater navigation, combat and mining – and can be summoned to any ocean on the planet, as well as docked at underwater buildings. Upgrade your submersible with installable Submarine Technology and customise the Nautilon to stand out from your fellow explorers.
