The new update for No Man's Sky has a launch trailer. The Abyss adds many underwater things including better visuals, more creatures, sunken treasure, the ability to build underwater, and the ability to use your jetpack underwater. I'm mostly glad that they made it so we can use our jetpack underwater. I've always felt that swimming in NMS wasn't so great. So, this update seems pretty cool, check out the embedded trailer for many more details.

I was just coming here to post this. They are really pushing major updates lately, and they still say this is only the beginning. I can't wait to see what's coming.

Beat ya to it LOL! I made news of it in the chat, was going to add it onto your old update post, but then decided to just post it.

Yeah, apparently the game is getting some kind of weekly updates. These major ones aren't the weekly ones. They did say there's more to come. I, too, wonder what that could be.

"The chat"? Oh! The CG Steam chat? I haven't gotten any notifications for that in ages.

The weekly updates are ok, very brief quests.

Yeah the Steam chat. I post news there sometimes, usually about free games to grab. I think it's the perfect place to share that kind of stuff.

I tried this out for a few minutes, just long enough to jump in the lake in front of my house, and wow it’s so much better to get around underwater. And really pretty down there too

Awesome! I haven't played in a while. I was doing a mission that required me to collect a certain mineral to increase my standing with one of the factions. I'm really glad they fixed the swimming thing, I hated swimming before. Thanks for the input!
