Development Update 7

Hello Everyone!

We've had a tremendous response to last week's Explorer Feedback Survey. Thank you for all the intelligent and passionate responses, and for helping us paint a clear picture of the community's preferences and priorities. The survey will remain open for a little while longer, so there is still time to contribute your perspective and help us shape the roadmap for No Man's Sky.

Community Research Update
Specialist Polo has at last emerged from the most involved data analysis they have ever undertaken - followed up by a more physical challenge in their workshop, crafting a new device to move this mystery forwards. They are exhausted and disoriented, but triumphant: they have identified the exact origin of the logs left by their lost Traveller-friends, ultimately a question of "when", rather than where.

Polo requests that participating explorers apply this specialised device to a number of transmission devices on a specific world, characterised by oversized flora. They hypothesize that, with the right time-tuning, and well-considered decisions, it may be possible for explorers to influence events occurring outside of the present moment...

From the Quicksilver Synthesis Bot
In the Space Anomaly, explorers will have several new items to exchange their Quicksilver for...

Bronze, silver, and gold editions of an Atlas Station statue, featuring a rotating core.

As well as 3 new customisable plants...

A carnivourous bush (direct skin contact not recommended).

A maize-like plant - "curious corn".

A squat dwarf palm.

Development Update
The team is hard at work on future large updates. We are so very close to being able to share something exciting with you, but we're going to contain our excitement and keep it under wraps for just a little longer, to make sure all the final polish passes are in place.

The patch notes for 1.65 are below. Thank you for playing and reading these updates!

Thank you so much,

Patch 1.65
  • Further fixes to rectify getting stuck when exiting the starship.
  • Updated mission logic.
  • Updated text.

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.
  • Fixed an issue where players could get trapped when getting out of some ship types.
  • Fixed an issue where players could fail to be given the blueprints for Hydroponic Trays.

  • Fixed an issue where NPC missions might return to a building that had no NPCs in them.
  • Fixed an issue where players could fail to learn the Glass blueprint at the correct time.
  • Fixed an issue where players could fail to learn the Frigate Fuel blueprints at the correct time.

  • Tessellation can now be enabled in the graphics options on PC.

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.
