No Man’s Sky developer Hello Games added a photo mode to the PS4 version of the game with its Foundation Update, last November. But for today’s Path Finder Update — which includes visual updates like 4K support on PS4 Pro, HDR support, better textures and lighting — it’s enhancing photo mode with the following improvements:
Find the perfect angle for your shot in free camera mode, revealing your Starship in third person
Pause and change the time of day for the perfect lighting conditions
Change cloud layers and fog density to take the most atmospheric shots possible
New photo filters can be used to add a finishing touch
To celebrate these enhancements, Hello Games enlisted the help of DeadEndThrills, well-known video game photographer, to document the game’s beautiful worlds. For a game whose inspiration was the cover art of classic sci-fi books, this is a welcome addition to the game’s expanding offerings. Here are the 12 images that Hello Games shared:
Update: Several hours after Hello Games shared the above photos, DeadEndThrills posted a gallery and shared some of it on Twitter. Feast your eyes!
