No Man’s Sky is shaping up to be one of gaming’s biggest comebacks, along with FFXIV: A Realm Reborn and to a lesser extent ESO. Hello Games has been working hard at improving their game and delivering on promises that many felt were not kept at release. The free Beyond update looks beyond promising (see what I did there?).

At the forefront of the trailer the procedural nature of the game is HEAVILY emphasized. The most striking thing I found from the trailer is how much more alive the game now looks. I dabbled briefly, and just felt so alone in the world. It was enjoyable, but Beyond looks to be even more immersive, full of life, full of options, and just more fun!

No Man’s Sky: Beyond arrives on August 14, 2019 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC, with VR support on PlayStation VR.
