No Man's Sky, released in 2016, received the Adrift update, which will make players feel very lonely.

In August, No Man's Sky will already be eight years old. Despite this, the game still enjoys considerable popularity. The unwavering number of players comes primarily from the updates regularly released by the devs. The latest of them – Adrift – has just been added to the game.

The new update is particularly unique because it allows players to explore an almost completely abandoned universe. This update is, in a way, a tribute to the early days of No Man's Sky when there were no independent characters in the game to prevent players from feeling isolated.

For our next update we wanted to allow players to experience an alternative universe. We are calling it Adrift, and for the first time players can be truly alone in No Man’s Sky. We think it’s a special feeling -- reads a fragment of the devs' announcement.

Developers explain that "there is no life to be seen anywhere – no aliens, no operational space stations, none of the usual network of shops and buildings." While players will be alone in essence, they will come across freely roaming sandworms and devil eggs spreading across the planets on their journey.

Buildings are broken and rusted, the few remaining landmarks the graves of lost Travellers. In space, a new ghostly frigate beckons, allowing players to recruit a piece of this lonely universe -- we read on.

Developers have also prepared a "new, unwieldy spaceship Hauler, called the Iron Vulture." Players will be able to customize it using the ship personalization option introduced in the previous update.

Below you can watch the trailer presenting the Adrift update.
