Developer Update 6

Hello Everyone!

More info available here

It’s been exciting to see the range of ways players have been exploring the features introduced in our exocraft update - from pushing the limits of the Pilgrim’s grip and suspension, to matching the colour schemes between bases and exocraft. Thank you so much for playing and for sharing. It really makes us feel like we’re on this journey together with all of you.

Listening to you, the players, is an essential part of this journey for us. This week we are reaching out with a survey to discover more about what the community is most interested in seeing in No Man's Sky. Please take this opportunity to have your voice heard!

Explorer Feedback Survey

Community Research Update
Polo has been deeply immersed in their analysis of the co-ordinates retrieved from the decrypted data packet, cross-comparing against the Anomaly's extensive databanks. They are still lost in data, processing an infinite spread of realities, looking for any pattern to identify the source of this location's importance - but a new, more pressing development has emerged.

Data is one of Polo’s greatest passions - but friendship is even more important to them. The Space Anomaly has detected the ship signature of an old Traveller-friend - someone Nada and Polo had thought lost long ago. Polo requests that explorers venture forth, locate their friend, and bring them home - but ensure to keep a low profile and not draw the eye of the Sentinels.

From the Quicksilver Synthesis Bot
Polo's Quicksilver bot has been busy synthesising a new set of collectables for participating explorers...

A nostalgic statue of the icon Alpha Vector starship, cast in bronze, silver, and gold.

Two new gadgets for explorer bases: A spherical hologram, representative of any one of the quintillions of celestial bodies populating the galaxies, and a fascinating expanding cube, utilising a high-tech localised gravitational field purely for aesthetic curiosity.

And a new gesture for explorers to express their wonder at any fauna, flora, landmark, building, or starry expanse that might catch their eye.

Development Update
Today we have also released another update for the game that addresses some important issues and enables the option for tessellation for players on PC (for prettier, bumpier terrain). Specialist Polo also has a new, close-to-home request for explorers participating in their research missions.

Thank you so much,

Patch 1.64
  • Fixed an issue where items could fail to display in the Quicksilver shop.
  • Fixed an issue where Community Research missions could be given deadlines in the distant future.

Development Update 5

Hello Everyone!

We are so excited to finally share the focus of our development efforts over the past few weeks: a large update focused on improving and extending planetary exocraft!

A brand new exocraft is now available to drive across the galaxies: the rugged, fast-moving Pilgrim.

The Geobay for the Pilgrim is available for purchase from the Blueprint Analyser.

The existing exocraft have also been tweaked. Multiplayer racing has been fixed, inventory sizes have been increased, and summoning has been made easier. Geobays now only need to be built once - after that, all owned exocraft can be summoned with unlimited range on any planet where you’ve constructed a new Exocraft Summoning Station.

New upgrades for the Pilgrim and all other exocraft can be purchased from the Exocraft Technician once their missions are complete. Exocraft handling can also be adjusted with a series of new technologies, allowing players to customise the grip or drift levels of their different vehicles.

Your exocraft fleet can also be customised, with a full range of colours, decals and boost flame effects available to choose from.

Community Research Update
Specialist Polo is dedicating this week to analysing the collected data before determining the next chapter of their research project. The galactic co-ordinates reported by their Explorer-Friends require thorough investigation, and the trace of another Traveller-Entity beyond this reality suggests the recent galactic changes may have wider-reaching impact than is yet understood...

Development Update
Patch 1.63 is live today, with the patch notes available below. The next update will see the continuation of Polo’s research missions, as well as high priority quality of life improvements throughout the game.

In the meantime, we are keeping up the pace here as we work towards another large update. Hopefully we’ll be able to share some previews of that ahead of time!

Thank you so much,

Patch 1.63
  • Added a new Exocraft, the Pilgrim. Purchase the blueprints for the Pilgrim Geobay from a Blueprint Analyser.

About This Game

Inspired by the adventure and imagination that we love from classic science-fiction, No Man's Sky presents you with a galaxy to explore, filled with unique planets and lifeforms, and constant danger and action.

In No Man's Sky, every star is the light of a distant sun, each orbited by planets filled with life, and you can go to any of them you choose. Fly smoothly from deep space to planetary surfaces, with no loading screens, and no limits. In this infinite procedurally generated universe, you'll discover places and creatures that no other players have seen before - and perhaps never will again.

Embark on an epic voyage

At the centre of the galaxy lies a irresistible pulse which draws you on a journey towards it to learn the true nature of the cosmos. But, facing hostile creatures and fierce pirates, you'll know that death comes at a cost, and survival will be down to the choices you make over how you upgrade your ship, your weapon and suit.

Find your own destiny

Your voyage through No Man's Sky is up to you. Will you be a fighter, preying on the weak and taking their riches, or taking out pirates for their bounties? Power is yours if you upgrade your ship for speed and weaponry.

Or a trader? Find rich resources on forgotten worlds and exploit them for the highest prices. Invest in more cargo space and you'll reap huge rewards.

Or perhaps an explorer? Go beyond the known frontier and discover places and things that no one has ever seen before. Upgrade your engines to jump ever farther, and strengthen your suit for survival in toxic environments that would kill the unwary.

Share your journey

The galaxy is a living, breathing place. Trade convoys travel between stars, factions vie for territory, pirates hunt the unwary, and the police are ever watching. Every other player lives in the same galaxy, and you can choose to share your discoveries with them on a map that spans known space. Perhaps you will see the results of their actions as well as your own...

Now including...

Play with all 4 major updates since launch: Foundation, Pathfinder, Atlas Rises and the massive NEXT update.

An epic voyage to the centre of a shared universe awaits, allowing you to explore, trade, fight and survive alone or with friends.
