New lore and interactions have been added too, fleshing out the truth behind the original mysteries including the Abandoned Building logs, the World of Glass, the Sentinels, the Redemption of the Gek and the meaning of 16. Today's patch notes say that Atlas Rises offers 30 hours of new story content, adding a new interdimensional race along with "a new context, quest system and branching narrative". It also looks like Atlas Rises adds more mechanics to the game, incentivizing players to really engage with their surroundings, rather than just catalogue new plants and animals on different planets.
As it turns out, Atlas Rises is much, much bigger than Murray initially let on. When No Man's Sky was first announced, one of the most tantalizing promises Sean Murray made was that players would all inhabit the same universe, but the odds of them ever actually meeting each other were nearly non-existent. While the full changelog is yet to arrive, the studio revealed that improvements to the central story and quick travel portals will be included in the update. This left players to create their own stories and make a lot of effort into their exploration of other planets as well as mapping out parts of the galaxy that they were going to explore.

It was not immediately clear whether the Chinese demanded the US destroyer leave as they have done in the past. USA officials say the military will continue to sail, fly and operate wherever permitted by worldwide law.
No Man's Sky is pretty damn massive, but now - hopefully - it'll feel a little smaller because you've now got access to your mates in space. Interaction is limited, but you have local voice chat and could theoretically us the terrain editing Multi-Tool enhancements together.

Apparently there are more upgrades to be equipped as well to improve it and reap even more rewards. It's the feng shui of planet terraforming. However, some new details have come to light after a list of upcoming changes accidentally went live on the No Man's Sky website before being promptly pulled.
