Jordan Erica Webber plays the new modes in No Man’s Sky and finds something for everyone
The first big update for No Man’s Sky gives almost everyone a reason to come back. “Foundation” includes features carefully selected to deal with each of the main resolvable complaints from those who were disappointed with the original release. And for those of us who were already happy with the game, the new modes provide a way to start a new, and entirely different, journey through the procedurally generated galaxy without having to give up on your first.
My original journey, which must have occupied me for at least 100 hours, is now under “Normal” mode, but two new modes lie empty, beckoning me to start afresh.
