Less than two weeks have passed since the last free update of No Man's Sky added Mass Effect & # 39; s Normandy to your fleet with the frigate. And there are another upgrade to the Hello Games space exploration sandbox.
It's called Prisms and is a pretty strong visual review for No Man's Sky. Prisms includes features such as:
- Rain that refracts light and makes surfaces look damp and shiny
- New lighting effects in the caves
- Skin for alien critters
- A night sky dotted with thousands of new stars
- New effects when using your warp unit
- Volumetric lighting effects inside spacecraft and space stations
Plus, you can now tame and assemble flying alien creatures. What better way to enjoy new images than from the back of a giant alien butterfly? Check out the Prisms trailer:

With so many new things to watch out for, No Man's Sky's photo mode has also gotten some upgrades, with better depth of field and flowering controls.
Note that some of the visual enhancements will depend on your PC's specifications and whether you're already using Ultra settings. But there is still a long list of features, including some welcome technological improvements, such as screen space reflections (SSR), DLSS (if you have an Nvidia RTX card), parallax occlusion mapping, refractions for to cockpits and glass-based parts, particle effect enhancements and more.
