With No Man's Sky NEXT, the galaxy-hopping survival game has become what many players wanted it to be in the first place: more social, more varied, and more focused on exploration. 

Perhaps most appealing though is the fact that No Man's Sky is also prettier than it used to be. Aided by an incredibly flexible photo mode, many shots of the procedurally-generated cosmos are awe-inspiring in their scale and color. We put out a call on Twitter, and you responded with some truly majestic pictures. Here's the best of the best, provided by our awesome community.

You folk are so finicky about time, living it in straight lines like that. -Nalo Hopkins


Never be limited by other people's limited imaginations...
