More like $24 :ghost:
Really? It's $16.03 at my end. It's usually $40.09 and now 60% off.

It says : You save $24.06. :/

Yes, because you're in a cheaper region. Here it's $24, down from $60.

Low atmospheric flight and improved beaches? And better star map and nav tools? Sounds nice. :squirrel:

(Watching a livestream. The low flight does look legit.)

Why sorry? You're lucky if it's cheaper. :lol:

In the negative side of things (there is usually one) the dollar is quite expensive around here, so I would take 24 bucks any day for a cheaper price per buck. :ghost:

Hmm... good point. Still, I don't think it's something you should have to apologize for. :P

The patch notes are looking good.

Keep it up Hello Games, I'm looking forward to giving the game another try :twisted:

so i've played the patch for a few hours now. it's a lot better than it was before, and i'm happy there's finally a mission board/faction system, even if its still pretty barebones. haven't tried out the "multiplayer" though i imagine it isn't awful. the new storyline isn't too bad, although i've kind of avoided it after getting burned on the original game's story. the game is a lot better now though, and for people who stopped playing it because of a lack of content and depth, i recommend giving it a try. it's still nowhere near as deep as games like Elite:Dangerous, but it's a much better game than it was at launch.

if, however, you stopped playing because you found the actual process of playing the game excruciatingly poor, then it probably won't make a difference. movement still feels pretty slow and floaty on foot, and ships likewise feel pretty floaty. combat is still pretty...bad, to say the least. and the interface is just as cumbersome as before, although it is a little better organized.

i did play on PS4 though, and some issues like my interface issues might not be as bad on PC.

Dipping back into this thread after a while, it sounds like there've been some improvements. I'm between games now -- in fact, after Dishonored 2 and Prey, there's not even any AAA game of interest to me on the radar -- so the latest comments here have me considering NMS.

Simple question: can it be played offline? I haven't seen a clear statement about this lately, so I thought I'd ask some experts.

The GoG description says single-player.

Keep in mind that "single-player" does not imply "offline." See Elite: Dangerous.

Nms works offline to my knowledge. Minus naming of stuff for everyone else to see. Duh

Yep, works fine offline. Connection is not required for anything but a few little peripherals (the scraps of MP they've added + submissions to the online named stuff database).
