No Man’s Sky Synthesis update lets you salvage ships and pack more heat

When Hello Games announced last week that their next update would improve nearly every part of No Man's Sky in some way, they weren't trading in hyperbole. The now-live Synthesis update squashes bugs and smooths out base building, sure. But the marquee additions that elevate it above mere housekeeping include the ability to salvage your ship for parts, carry a handful of multi-tools on your…

No Man’s Sky plans a little spit shine in Synthesis

The intrepid team of interstellar architects at Hello Games have already announced another update to No Man's Sky. Anyone hoping for something the size and impact of August's Beyond will need to ease off the hype-r drive (ugh): Synthesis, as founder Sean Murray called it, looks to be a bundle of "polish and small quality of life improvements" aimed at smoothing your experience traveling among…

No Man’s Sky explorer makes futuristic museum for alien relics

I won't pretend to understand what a Stabilised Reality Glitch is in spacefaring planet-hopper No Man's Sky, but when I see a bunch of them gathered together on podiums in a remote interplanetary museum, I will say: "cool". A player has done just that, bringing each of the rare trophy items to a minimalist monument and placing them on display, like some sort of curator…

No Man’s Sky Beyond is a bit broken, but patching has already begun

I was hoping to try No Man’s Sky in VR, but my current holodeck isn’t quite ready. My entire house is crammed in there while we continue to unpack after a recent move, though it turns out this is a good thing because reading up on people’s PC experiences has made it clear I should wait a week or two before I climb into the…

No Man’s Sky Beyond is rolling out now, PC release imminent

At some point today, the vast and giffable world of No Man’s Sky will update - it's already out on PS4, and it could happen any second on PC. I’m extremely excited about it. I like space, I like VR, and I like bonkers worlds with ridiculous proc-gen. I even like ambient multiplayer, and No Man’s Sky Beyond has all of those, now. And Hello…

Beyond saddle sores: No Man’s Sky update will let you ride spacecrabs in VR

Hello Games' next big update for No Man's Sky - coming August 14th - introduces virtual reality support and a new multiplayer social space called The Nexus, where players can convene with fellow space-farers to show off their gear and feasibly do other fun space-related activities. Finally, you will have a built-in audience for all that pent-up space-comedy material you've been saving ("What's the deal…

No Man’s Sky’s multiplayer goes interstellar with Beyond update this month.

"You want multiplayer?" Hello Games (probably) asked last summer, ahead of No Man's Sky's last big update, named Next. "Buddy, you've got it." At that point, I imagine a good chunk of the game's player base looked at the four-player offering, shrugged, and replied: "Sure, that's nice and all, but we were expecting... bigger." Personally, I was happy pottering about on my lonesome for a…

No Man’s Sky Beyond to add VR support this summer

At least half of the joy of No Man's Sky is soaking in its strange alien landscapes that its algorithms have generated for you. I reckon that sightseeing should be all the more impressive in virtual reality. During a Sony live-stream, Hello Games unveiled one more feature of their upcoming free expansion, Beyond - full VR support. Players with existing saves can put on a…

A leaked No Man’s Sky trailer reveals visions of the next update

Update: Hello Games have announced the Vision update will land this Thursday, the 22nd. You can read the (exceedingly pretty) patch notes here. Hang on, I'm getting a vision of something. I see... I see a more varied No Man's Sky, with properly alien aliens and five new planetary biomes. I see cool derelict spaceships, ancient buried skeletons and launchable fireworks. I see double rainbows,…

No Man’s Sky goes under the sea with ‘The Abyss’ update

I'm always touched to receive e-mails imploring me to "Get in the [flipping] sea," sent by fans who know there's nowhere I'm happier than in that deep blue. I'm glad to hear that No Man's Sky players today get to enjoy more life aquatic, with the latest major free update focusing on improving oceans. 'The Abyss', as version 1.7 is nicknamed, overhauls and expands ocean…

Space motorcycles and enhanced Exocraft roll into No Man’s Sky today

Space explorers in Hello Games's No Man's Sky can now experience the pleasure of finding ancient alien religious sites, then ramping off them in a giant spacebike while hootin' and/or hollerin'. The Akira-meets-Popemobile beauty above is the Pilgrim, a new Exocraft added in today's vehicle-focused update. Players wanting to take it for a spin should check out their nearest Blueprint Analyser, and look for the Pilgrim Geobay,…

No Man’s Sky’s new Galactic Atlas is a condensed version of the game’s joys

As well as finding No Man's Sky a relaxing exploration sim to play, I’ve especially enjoyed hearing about all the weird and wonderful corners of the universe that other players have stumbled upon. Now, Hello Games have made it much easier to find those stories. Released with the latest update, the Galactic Atlas allows anyone to explore fan-submitted points of interest. And I can’t stop…

The studio have their first season of community events planned out, and the first, detailed in this official blog post, goes live today.

The reward is 200 million units for a ship that looks like this, according to a bounty posted on Reddit by player "Avaslash".

No Man’s Sky GOG edition not getting multiplayer until later in 2018

Update: GOG are now offering refunds to anyone who owns NMS there, even if they're beyond the 30-day guarantee. GOG take great, finger-pointing pains to say that "Hello Games chose not to offer refunds over missing game content to our users" and this is "entirely at GOG's own cost". I have found it's often best to brew a cuppa, have a ciggy, or stroll round…
