The Atlas Rises update in Version 1.3 is now available to all. Hello Games boasts that it contains "a brand new and overhauled central storyline, portals, a new procedural mission system, trade improvements, system economies, joint exploration and more." This includes 30+ hours of story content and actual missions - not to mention a simple co-op mode, at last. Ship combat has been improved, graphics have been boosted, and low flight mode has been allowed.
All the details are available here, and they're actually quite exciting. If only they were there a year ago.
Original Story as follows:

The update's main points are said to include a spruced up story and fast travel portals - two areas of the game that were usually under heavy criticism.

Technically announced through an email to players, the message started to get a little more personal, with Hello Games' founder, Sean Murray apologizing for the group's continued silence on the matter: "What we do is much more important than what we say, but since launch we have sometimes focused too much on There's no specific date mentioned when it comes to the update's release, but rest assured it'll be with us in the next few days. There's a fair chance it may trigger a sale, too. So if you've been waiting to pick this one up, it may soon be just about the right time.
