This thread is for sharing and discussing leaked footage of the No Man’s Sky NEXT update, for those interested in watching them. I thought that making a new topic specifically for these videos would be a good idea, so as not to inundate the regular video thread with spoilers.
Obviously anyone that opened this thread is not afraid if spoilers, but please wrap links in detail tags anyway, just to be sure.
There are currently about 13 videos. Thanks to @DarthTrethon for bringing videos 7-13 to our attention. They are all linked below.
13 Next Gameplay Videos
This is a series. Includes base building, new caves and hazardous plants(!), new freighter interior, and more.
Spoilers are fun but beyond the initial sneak-peak I’m not looking anymore. I want to dive in headfirst for myself.
I want to be stunned by visuals, confused by controller changes, overwhelmed by improvements and lost in the discoveries.
I was a bit afraid of that. Most of the infrastructure is there now, but the AI probably didn’t make it yet. I hope it’ll be on the priority list for the next update. I mean, the next after NEXT. Dammit HG, that title will cause confusion for eons to come!
I wouldn’t say months ago but weeks ago certainly…around a month before release day or so is when physical boxes hit the production lines…but yeah, the first day patch may be huge…the ARG did refer to this as 1.5 and what’s on disc is 1.4.
3.55gb fits close to what I remember Vanilla being in size (was it 2.9gb or am I way off?) . The network download could be all updates as far as 1.38.
Id say the update will be downloading assets to replace things currently on system so the overall size shouldnt increase too much but I expect the patch to be between the 4gb to 10gb range for existing owners in PC/PS4… Just a guess though.
Well it’s definitely beyond 1.38 based on what’s been shown in the leaked footage, that’s for sure. Still…a lot of people bought this expecting NEXT to be on disc…some were even saying that NEXT was confirmed to be on disc by 505…I don’t know if that’s true.
