After teasing cryptic messages about an upcoming update to No Man’s Sky, Developer Hello Games have announced that a free update to the game, titled “Atlus Rises” will arrive this week.
According to a blog post by the developer, the update focuses on “Improving the central story of No Man’s Sky and adds the ability to quick travel between locations using portals”. The post goes on to thank players who got involved with the “Walking Titan” programme which saw Hello Games send out cassette tapes teasing an update. The post states “You’ve travelled great distances both real and virtual, undertaken complex tasks and explored the depths of simulation theory. New friendships have been forged and a tight-knit community has been created”
Hello Games have continued to offer free updates to No Man’s Sky since launch, giving players both the Foundation and Path Finder updates. The Atlas Rises update releases this week with no further detail as to when.
