No Man's Sky Prisms Update Adds A Visual Overhaul

No Man's Sky is the game which keeps giving. With that disastrous launch now a distant memory, Hello Games founder Sean Murray's just revealed details about the latest update. Calling it Prisms, that's primarily designed as a visual upgrade and it launches today on all platforms.

Coming in at 13GB on the PS4 and 11.9 GB on the Xbox Series X|S, this mandatory update offers quite the overhaul, with Hello Games stating:

Update 3.5, Prisms, dramatically refreshes the No Man’s Sky experience with a range of new visual features and technologies. The universe has never looked better, with reflections, new texture effects, more biome detail, improved lighting, new skies, new warp effects, creature fur, and a host more besides.
