No Man's Sky The Abyss PS4 PlayStation 4

Since the launch of the massive NEXT update for divisive space exploration game No Man's Sky, Hello Games has been continually updating and improving the title every week. There's a lot of effort going into making the game the best it can be, with the small developer recently adding the ability to further customise your character and a brand new land vehicle. The next free round of content is on the way, and it's being called The Abyss.

Unfortunately there are no details on exactly what The Abyss is set to bring to the galactic table, but Sean Murray states that it "focuses on some of the eerier elements of No Man’s Sky, in keeping with the theme of this season." Going by the name, it could be that we'll see some creepy missions that take explorers into deep dark caverns, or even to the bottom of the sea -- maybe we'll discover a mysterious race of aliens down there?

Whatever the case, the update launches next week on PS4. Will you be staring into The Abyss? Equip your fluid breathing system in the comments below.
