No Man's Sky's latest content expansion, The Abyss, is available now for PS4, Xbox One, and PC players and adds a host of new undersea content to Hello Games' space exploration sim.
Hello Games says that with the Abyss expansion there are now five times more variety in aquatic flora and fauna, making them more diverse. The Abyss update also introduces new building modules to build underwater sealabs with glass tube pathways, and even aquarium modules. Not only is the underwater worlds greatly expanded, but this is the first major update since No Man's Sky Next.
You can explore the sea with revamped swimming and diving controls or pilot a new submarine vehicle called the "Nautilon." You'll also need the Nautilon to reach deeper parts of the ocean as Hello Games says the dangers of the sea changes the deeper players dive down.
All of this is tied to a new storyline called "The Dreams of the Deep" which "brings a new context to the depts and a dark narrative to No Man's Sky." Just like Hello Games teased The Abyss will bring some "eerie" content to No Man's Sky just in time for Halloween.
No Man's Sky came out in 2016 but a major content expansion called "Next" helped revitalize the space exploration sim adding multiplayer, building construction, and major quality of life improvements. Players have been journeying in No Man's Sky ever since.
