    The 1.3 update for No Man's Sky is here! Among the many changes, improvements, and additions in this update are the beginnings of online multiplayer! Yes, nearly one year after the game launched and broke a lot of hearts, the team at Hello Games seems to have been super busy putting together one incredible update. Based on the changes in the 1.3 update, this could be one of the biggest turnarounds for a game I've yet seen.

    I put a spell on you, and now you're… like, really burnt to a crisp.
    Fictorum may have impressed a number of people these past few months thanks to some very handy PR work on sites like Reddit and Imgur.
