No Man’s Sky announces new update, The Abyss, releasing next week


It’s only been a couple of months since the release of No Man’s Sky’s last named update, NEXT, but it looks like the folks at Hello Games have been hard at work since then, as they’ve just announced the imminent release of a new major content update known as The Abyss. Announced in a short post on the game’s official site, The Abyss is something of an enigma right now — all we know for sure is that “it focuses on some of the eerier elements of No Man’s Sky,” as befits an update slated to go live right around Halloween.

Beyond that, specific details of what the update will entail are unknown, but as Eurogamer’s post on the matter points out, “An obvious candidate for possible expansion as part of The Abyss would be No Man’s Sky’s Biological Horrors, which were introduced in the NEXT update and appear whenever players attack Whispering Eggs.” Seems like a solid guess, though we’ll just have to wait and see what awaits players in the darkness. The Abyss will be available for free to all existing players on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 next week.
