No Man's Sky can sometimes be a bit scary. Some planets are really otherworldly with atmospheric weather and flora, others are dreary and monochrome and steeped in a sense of fear. There is also occasionally biological horror. So it makes sense that Hello Games could try to intensify the horrors, especially since Halloween is approaching.
Therefore, the next No Man's Sky Update. It's called The Abyss, Hello Games, and it will land free for all players next week.
"While most of the team were busy with weekly updates, a handful have been working on something else, our first titled update since NEXT," the post said.
"A new free update will be released to all players next week, and we call it" The Abyss "because it focuses on some of the more sinister elements of No Man's Sky, matching this season's theme." [1
