But not only that their DLCs included extensive Bug fixes, a multiplayers mode which allow to players playing in PC and game consoles to play together... and of course : They added a mOTs of contents and features to their game. Like... what they promised before the game was out, plus features and contents demanded by the players. So, what kind of game is No Man's Sky ? It is a Space Opera game where the player can even travel to planets, build bases there (including under waters... thanks to one of the free dlcs), farm materials, ect... All in all, this game has combats in space but the game focuses more on planet exploration and farming.
