A new update is available for No Man’s Sky, which is even nicer.
The Prisms update is now available for No Man’s Skyand adds a lot of visual enhancements.
These enhancements include reflections, new texture effects, more biome details, improved lighting, new skies, new warp effects, creature fur, and more.
You can expect support for Screen Space Reflection (SSR) technology for PCs, next-generation consoles, and Xbox One X. This allows starships and life forms to create reflections as they move, and lighting in reflective areas will look better and more realistic.
The update introduced new styles of volumetric lights, using color and directional volumetry to add atmosphere to the universe. Interstellar travel has undergone a “sensory correction” and the audio and video manifestations of the warp experience have been dramatically reworked.
PC players with compatible NVIDIA RTX graphics cards can take advantage of DLSS, and caves and underground biomes are now even more alien and exotic as fungi and flora shine with new atmospheric lighting effects and the environment is more detailed and diverse.
Next-generation console players or PC gamers using the Ultra setting will also experience a dramatic increase in planetary detail in a variety of environments.
The team added new parallax occlusion mapping technology to bring more depth and definition to previously flat surfaces. Many textured surfaces in cosmic anomalies and planetary structures now appear in more detail. Also, dangerous weather events, such as meteors or lightning strikes, now have a chance to spawn valuable objects and create opportunities for those who want to face extreme planetary conditions.
The new lighting technology in the update brings the quarry of the game, and new effects can be seen all over space, including glass base pieces, cockpits of starships, force fields, alien bubbles, and more.
The Appearance Modifier user interface has been updated for cleaner and clearer customization, and the range of creatures that can be adopted has been expanded. Fur has even been added to various creatures.
In addition, the diversity, quality and number of stars in the sky have increased significantly.
Hello Games has also done so, so when you buy a new truck, your existing freight base is automatically transferred and refurbished. In addition, the basic cargo ship layout can now be reset at any time from the Freighter Upgrade Control terminal.
Photo mode now has significantly improved depth of field and control, as well as manual control of flower settings.
The twilight rays, which create atmospheric light effects, have also been redesigned and improved.
Here is much more to spend in the update, and you should catch up on everything new with the latest blog post.
